Medical Malpractice

When you or a loved-one is sick or injured, we rely on doctors, surgeons and nurses to work effortlessly to help as much as possible. We instill immense trust in these individuals, building a special patient-doctor relationship and hoping they can avoid the medical malpractice that we hear about. However, medical errors are a human mistake and thus a reality in our lives. We must be prepared to navigate the complexities of this problem, and Young & Young stands ready to help you overcome the obstacle.

In 1976, when Dr. Otis Bowen was Indiana’s Governor, the Indiana Malpractice Act was passed. This act protects healthcare providers and limits the amount of damages that can be recovered no matter what amount a jury might determine is fair compensation for medical malpractice. This act means there are a number of requirements that must be met before being able to file in court, such as filing a “proposed complaint” in the Indiana Department of Insurance. Also, before filing in court every case must be submitted to a panel of three fellow healthcare providers for review and an opinion on whether or not the panel feels there was malpractice or not. The complex process behind medical malpractice gives rise to the fact that it is a very time-consuming and therefore takes a while to get to trial.

At Young & Young, we hope to make a significant difference in the ultimate resolution of your claim. We represent clients in personal injury and wrongful death litigation against healthcare professionals whose wrong choices have resulted in serious and disabling injury or death. Typical consequences of the most severe instances of professional negligence include organ failure, permanent brain damage, paralysis, or death of the patient. Examples of the kinds of medical malpractice cases we handle include the following:

  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a patient’s medical condition
  • Serious errors in prescribing or administering drugs or other medication
  • Surgical errors including anesthesia mistakes or improper postoperative care
  • Birth injuries caused by negligence in the delivery room
  • Emergency room errors in diagnosis, treatment or discharge of the patient
  • Radiology errors
  • Negligent treatment by hospital staff

At Young & Young, we have great experience with medical malpractice that allows us to determine valid cases from doubtful ones. We engage medical experts early in the evaluation process fairly and objectively evaluate cases to help make this determination.
