The settlement amount for a Michigan medical malpractice case is determined by several factors. First and foremost, under state law there are limits on what a medical malpractice victim can actually receive. These are called damage limits, or cap, and set the maximum amount of compensation a patient can possibly receive for a medical malpractice case. This limit is changed yearly.
In addition to damage limits, the settlement amount is also affected by the strength of the evidence in proving that a medical error or mistake occurred, the injury suffered by the patient, the amount of medical malpractice insurance coverage available for the claim, and the location of the lawsuit.
If a patient is killed due to a medical malpractice, compensation may be larger as other damages, such as loss of companionship, may be collected.
