In some states, there are laws that may limit how much compensation a person can win if their medical malpractice claim is successful. In particular, these so-called damage caps are commonly enforced on non-economic damages. Non-economic damages include emotional distress, loss of companionship, and the worsening of a patient’s quality of life after an injury. However, Arkansas has no such limits for claimants pursuing compensation. Whatever compensation amounts are settled upon or are awarded through the courts are not limited.
