How do I initiate a medical malpractice lawsuit?

Medical Malpractice FAQs

How do I initiate a medical malpractice lawsuit? The process that is used to initiate a malpractice claim or lawsuit in Indiana calls for the filing of a proposed complaint before the Indiana Department of Insurance. This is different than the procedure in a normal negligence case where you would be entitled to start the legal proceedings by filing a complaint at the courthouse.

By starting the process with a proposed complaint, the case will then be presented to a medical review panel consisting of three doctors or medical providers that are in a position similar to that of the defending physician or hospital provider.

While this process can be long and difficult, an Indiana medical malpractice attorney from WKW is well versed in every step in this process. Let our skilled legal team assist you in navigating each step of your suit. We will help you to file the initial proposed complaint and to complete all subsequent steps.
