What can I recover if I win my Florida medical malpractice case?
In medical malpractice cases, there are two forms or two categories of compensation. One is general damages, and the other is special damages. General damages are things that don’t have an actual price tag, for example, pain and suffering, disability, loss of enjoyment of life. Special damages are things that can actually be proven with a receipt or canceled check for example. Those things would include lost wages, medications, medical care, and accommodations that need to be purchased.
