Do I Have a Medical Malpractice Case?
Doctors, nurses, medical specialists, hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare providers have an obligation to provide care that meets clear standards. The standard of care is measured by the way other members in the profession would act under similar circumstances. If a medical professional fails to meet the standard of care, he or she is considered negligent and can be liable for malpractice.
In Colorado, there is a cap of $300,000 on non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, disfigurement and physical impairment. Colorado law places a $1,000,000 cap on total damages. However, the court can exceed this cap upon a showing of good cause, which is that the economic damages will exceed the cap
