Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Ask Your Own Personal Injury Law Question

There is no such thing as "average compensation." It depends on the extent of the alleged molestation and any injury suffered as a result of the molestation. Also, it depends on the evidence you can show the hospital regarding this molestation.

You cannot even try to put a number on it unless you can establish the severity of the injury (emotional and physical) that you suffered as a result of the alleged molestation.

If there was no injury and no severe emotional distress, generally these cases are called nuisance settlements and hospitals will not pay anymore than between $200 and $1500.
