What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice cases entail claims against doctors, hospitals, nursing homes, dentists and a variety of other healthcare providers. These cases stem from the negligent actions of medical providers that have a immense effect on patients and their loved ones. Legally, medical malpractice is the result of a doctor, hospital employees, or other medical provider’s care falling below the applicable standard of care while treating a patient. “Standard of Care” refers to the care that would expected to be given by an average healthcare provider under similar circumstances. Certain things like medical knowledge, the medical professional’s specialty, and knowledge available to other physicians are taken into account.

The “Standard of Care” also varies based on each specific healthcare treatment and the circumstances thereto. Guidelines for establishing a “Standard of Care” look towards an average physician’s skills in a relevant fields, medical knowledge, traditional medical practices, and how an average physician would have treated under the same circumstances.

Indiana Medical Malpractice Claims

Some medical professionals are governed by the Indiana Medical Malpractice Act which imposes many procedural and applicable requirements that must be followed and worked through. These include a requirement of filing a claim with the Indiana Department of Insurance before proceeding with litigation and statutory caps on recoverable damages. The experienced attorneys at Waldron Tate Bowen Funk Spandau LLC are well-versed in applicable laws pertaining to medical malpractice and will guide you through the process.

Why Speak with an Attorney?

When seeking compensation from an at fault medical professional, you will likely need to file a claim with the Indiana Department of Insurance or file a medical malpractice lawsuit. Nothing prohibits you from doing both of these things yourself. However, it is highly recommended to do this with legal representation.

When represented by our medical malpractice attorneys, you can be confident your case is in good hands. We will:

  • explain the ins and outs of the law as it relates to your case so you fully understand what damages are recoverable;
  • obtain and work with experts as needed for things such as accident reconstruction and valuation of future losses;
  • fully investigate your claim and gather all evidence needed to support your claim;
  • work to identify all possible insurance coverages and at fault parties;
  • advise you on the value of your claim and any settlement offers made or received;
  • make sure all deadlines and any other procedural rules relating to the filing of a claim are met and followed;
  • advocate aggressively on your behalf with the insurance company in pursuit of a fair personal injury settlement; and
  • zealously represent you in court, if a fair settlement cannot be reached.

It can be difficult for many people to fully grasp what their rights are, and the full amount of compensation available to them without proper representation. Our personal injury attorneys will advocate on your behalf through the process to make sure the insurance company is not taking advantage of you in denying or diminishing the value of your injuries.
