The premise behind all medical malpractice lawsuits is simple: negligence. Doctors and other medical professionals owe a duty to their patients to practice medicine with the degree of skill, care, and diligence possessed by a reasonably competent physician under the same circumstances. These professionals breach their duty of care when they fail to live up to this standard.
A personal injury claim arises when the physician’s negligence causes an injury in the patient, and the patient suffers damages as a result.
The purpose of a medical malpractice case is to provide an injured patient with the opportunity to recover financial compensation for the damages the doctor caused. For example, if a doctor fails to properly diagnose a disease or makes an error during surgery, the patient who is harmed can recover money for the costs of additional medical treatment, lost wages or missed professional opportunities, and real instances of emotional pain and suffering.
A medical malpractice lawyer in Indianapolis will help you to identify these missed opportunities and advocate for the appropriate compensation.
