Indiana Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Updated: December 4, 2012

What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is the act in which a doctor, surgeon, or other licensed healthcare provider acts negligently, causing injury or death to a patient. Patients expect a timely diagnosis of a medical problem along with proper treatment. In some cases, a delay in diagnosis may have serious consequences to the patient and may affect their quality of life. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a medical error or medical negligence, contact an Indiana medical malpractice attorney immediately.

What Are Some Examples of Malpractice?

Doctors and other medical staff are professionals who are respected by the community. It is their duty to safely and correctly treat patients with the individual’s best interest and health in mind. Some types of medical malpractice may be:

  • Delay in diagnosis
  • Anesthesia error
  • Improper consent before a medical procedure
  • Surgical error
  • Failure to diagnose a medical condition
  • Improper treatment of an illness or disease
  • Birth injury, including Cerebral Palsy and Brain Damage
  • Prescription drug error
  • Negligence
