Connecticut Medical Malpractice Reform
Potential damages in personal injury cases may be classified into two categories:
- Economic damages for actual losses, which may include medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, and more.
- Non-economic damages that cover pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of quality of life.
In the state of Connecticut, many physicians are seeking a non-economic damages “cap” on medical malpractice claims. A damages cap would limit the amount of damages-or compensation-an injured patient could collect in a medical malpractice lawsuit. Physicians may seek to limit these damages because they are intangible and may add to the total amount of losses an injured person may claim.
