Are you suing for personal injury or are you suing for medical malpractice? You can discuss evidence of damages with your lawyer. If you do not have a lawyer, you are just plain foolish and you are doing yourselves a grave disservice. I cannot emphasize that last point strongly enough: I have been practicing law for 30 years now and I don't take med-mal cases because they are so difficult, expensive and time consuming. I know a lawyer who does take such cases, he turns down many more than he takes, it is not uncommon for him to lay out $50,000 in expenses, he'll put a thousand hours work into it and even then he figures he only has a 50/50 shot. That's how difficult these cases are. So if you have a lawyer like that, then trust him/her to get the job done. If not, then you might as well just hit yourself in the head with a brick for all the chance at success you will have.
