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

Utah medical malpractice defendants who are found to have committed medical malpractice should be prepared to pay for all of the plaintiff’s economic damages (such as loss of income and medical bills). They should also be prepared to be found liable for up to about $400,000 in noneconomic damages for things such as pain and suffering or loss of enjoyment. The $400,000 cap is adjusted annually by the Administrative Office of Courts so the specific number may change slightly from year to year.
