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

Limits on economic and noneconomic damages in Pennsylvania are not limited. The Pennsylvania courts have found such limits to be unconstitutional.

Punitive damages are, however, limited to cases where the defendant is found guilty of willful misconduct or reckless disregard.
