How Do I Know If I Have a Case of Medical Malpractice?

For an act or omission to qualify as malpractice, it must have directly caused injury or harm that was otherwise avoidable. 

So, when looking for compensation after medical malpractice, you need to prove the other party’s negligence by establishing a clear link between their actions and the injuries you’ve sustained. To achieve this, we work by reviewing medical records, consulting with medical experts, and building compelling cases that prove the liability of negligent healthcare providers.

Be Careful With the Indiana Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice

Victims of medical malpractice must be aware of Indiana’s statute of limitations. This statute, located in the Indiana Code, sets a clear, strict deadline for filing a lawsuit. 

In medical malpractice cases, this is generally two years from the date of the alleged act, omission, or neglect, but there are exceptions and specific circumstances that can affect this period. Moreover, failing to act within this timeframe will result in the loss of the right to seek compensation. 

Here, our attorneys can help you navigate these and other deadlines and requirements, ensuring your case is filed promptly.

What Types of Compensation Can You Recover in an Indianapolis Medical Malpractice Case?

Compensation in medical malpractice cases covers a wide range of losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Each case is unique, and the potential for recovery depends on the specifics of the injury and the impact it had on the victim’s life. 

It’s necessary to mention that (according to Indiana Code 34-18-14-3) the total amount recoverable for an injury or death of a patient has a cap of $1,800,000. 

However, our attorneys are committed to securing the maximum compensation possible for your case. For example, we can leverage Indiana’s patient’s compensation fund to allow you to recover damages even if they exceed the limits of a healthcare provider’s medical malpractice insurance.
