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

The Michigan legislature has limited the amount of non-economic damages that a plaintiff can recover in addition to his or her out of pocket expenses for things such as medical expenses. Non-economic damages are limited to between $280,000 and $500,000 depending on the circumstances of the case. The state treasurer adjusts the amount of money that is recoverable for non-economic damages annually depending on the consumer price index.
