/ Practice Areas/ Medical Malpractice
When we are sick or injured, we all trust doctors to help us get better. A sick or injured person has no choice except to put their health entirely in the hands of their doctor, often with no way to ensure the choices this professional makes are correct. Sometimes, doctors make mistakes—and these mistakes can have extreme consequences on the lives of their patients.

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 that is 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 the medical malpractice cause of action is to allow the injured patient the opportunity to bring a claim against a negligent doctor in order 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 by these instances of negligence 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 opportunities and advocate for appropriate compensation.
