Fishers Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Representing Patients Across Indiana

Medical malpractice is a term used to describe a medical professional deviating from the standards of his or her profession in such a way that the deviation causes injury to the patient. Medical malpractice is an act or omission by a doctor that causes undue harm to their patient. The doctor owes a standard of duty to their patient. When that duty is broken, the patient can suffer harm. The breach of duty is the proximate (direct) cause to the patient’s injury suffered.

Understanding Medical Malpractice Cases in Indiana

Medical malpractice can occur while a patient is in surgery. Wrong site surgery is a form of medical malpractice. This is when the surgeon performs surgery on the wrong spot on your body. This happens when the surgeon performs the operation on the wrong side of your body.

Another form of surgical medical malpractice is when the surgeon negligently forgets a surgical tool inside the patient’s body. This can cause harm to the patient and, more often than not, requires additional surgery and recovery time.

Birth injuries are another form. This occurs when a doctor’s negligence causes an infant physical harm upon their birth by not following the proper routine. Another common malpractice is when the doctor prescribes either the wrong type of prescription medication or an incorrect amount to a patient. This can have varying effects depending on the medication and the dosage prescribed.

Medical procedures are not something the average person is accustomed to; nor are they usually pleasant.

Our lawyers can help you reach a settlement that properly compensates you for the injuries you suffer at the hands of a doctor.
