Indiana Medical Malpractice Attorneys
You trust medical professionals such as doctors and nurses to provide you with expert care. You trust them to make the right decisions for your health and well-being. But what if they don’t?
In the case of medical malpractice, a medical professional may have made a mistake in diagnosis, treatment or care. This omission or negligence could be related to a one-time procedure such as surgery or could be related to ongoing care for a condition.
Medical malpractice is very common; a report by Forbes cited information from the Journal of the American Medical Association that medical malpractice is the third-leading cause of death in the United States, right behind heart disease and cancer. In 2012 alone, more than $3 billion was spent nationwide in medical malpractice lawsuit payouts. This averaged one payout every 43 minutes, Forbes further reported.
