Medical malpractice plaintiffs in Minnesota can recover all of their quantifiable expenses such as loss of income, medical bills and rehabilitation expenses. Additionally, they can recover for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering and loss of consortium. While there is no monetary limit placed on punitive damages, punitive damages are only allowed in limited circumstances when a plaintiff has proven that a defendant had a deliberate disregard for the patient’s safety. All jury awards are subject to judicial review.
