Compensation Needed for Psychological and Emotional Suffering
Medical malpractice can often leave a person trying to deal with a considerable amount of psychological and emotional concerns. A person may lose trust or faith in authority figures, feel betrayed, be left with behavioral issues due to a physical injury, or simply suffer long-lasting trauma. In these cases, there may be compensation for some of this suffering, including the following:
- Emotional and psychological suffering damages
- Compensation for a loss of a lifestyle
- Compensation for a loss of companionship
- Compensation for drug treatments
- Therapy expenses compensation
This compensation can help a person spend more time recovering than worrying about the high costs of treatment. This can prove crucial for many people left with severe injuries after a medical mistake.
