What is the potential liability in a medical malpractice case in Arkansas?

The potential liability in a medical malpractice case in Arkansas is high. Arkansas law allows plaintiffs to recover for actual economic losses such as medical bills and loss of income. They can also recover for future economic losses that are likely for anticipated medical bills and loss of income due to their injuries. Damages for noneconomic losses such as pain and suffering are also permitted. Punitive damages are allowed but are limited to $250,000 per plaintiff or three times the amount of economic damages not to exceed $1 million dollars. This amount is adjusted for inflation every three years.
