In some states, there are limits on the amount of money, or damages, that you can be awarded in a civil medical malpractice case. In some instances, this is so that doctors can afford the high fees of medical malpractice insurance. In other instances, it is because some states believe that people are "getting rich" from medical malpractice claims in which they are awarded too much money for pain and suffering. You can find out the maximum amount of money that you can be awarded in a medical malpractice case by doing research yourself, or you can consult a medical malpractice attorney, who will know how to help you proceed.
