If a health care provider fails to meet a standard of care, they may be responsible for any corresponding injury.  Medical malpractice is similar to a regular personal injury suit in that the health care provider fell below a reasonable standard of care.  Indiana has a Medical malpractice statute that requires all claims to be reviewed by a medical review panel.  A medical review panel consists of three health care providers that practice in the same area as the defendant(s).  Medical mistakes are very difficult to prosecute in Indiana as a claimant will be expected to get a unanimous opinion of fault from the health care providers.  In reality, those cases of the most egregious circumstances are found in favor of the plaintiff.  Call us to assess your potential med mal claim.
