The value of any medical malpractice claim is determined by the facts and circumstances of the particular case. Damages that are recoverable in such a claim include compensatory damages to reimburse or compensate the injured party for financial and non-financial losses as a result of the injuries. Lost wages and medical expenses are examples of financial losses that are recoverable, along with future earnings and any future medical treatment that may be necessary. New Hampshire law also provides for the recovery of emotional distress, pain and suffering, loss of consortium and damages for any permanent injuries. Also, New Hampshire law allows for the recovery of hedonic or loss of enjoyment of life damages. These damages compensate an injury victim where they cannot enjoy or do things they were able to do prior to their injury.
