The 2019 Medical Malpractice Payout Report by the National Practitioner Data Bank reports that in 2018, the damages awarded for medical malpractice claims included 12.3% of cases resulting in quadriplegia, brain injuries, and other serious injuries requiring lifetime care, 18.7% resulting in significant permanent injuries, and 29.7% cases resulting in death. Remarkably, the average payout for claims that resulted in death was approximately $386,000 per claim, which is much lower than brain damage claim payouts, earning an average amount of approximately $961,000.

It is important to keep in mind that your case may be worth lower or higher than the average payout amount for medical malpractice cases that resulted in deaths. Medical negligence could impact patients in a wide variety of ways. Likewise, since it could impact most forms of medical care, how it occurred and how it affected your loved one before their death will be crucial to how much compensation you could recover.
