How are medical malpractice settlements calculated?

Under North Carolina law, a plaintiff may recover economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include primarily medical expenses and loss of earnings. Non-economic damages may include pain and suffering, scars or disfigurement, loss of use of part of the body, loss of consortium, permanent injury, and inconvenience. Those cases with higher medical costs and negligence resulting in permanent injuries typically resolve at higher amounts.
