What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice claims stem from the failure of a healthcare provider to provide a level of care that meets the accepted standards of practice for their profession, resulting in the injury or death of a patient. A healthcare provider may be a doctor, nurse, psychiatrist, dentist, chiropractor, podiatrist, hospital or any other medical professional involved in the diagnosis or treatment of a patient.
In a successful medical malpractice case in Indiana, the patient’s compensatory damages are subject to a statutory cap. Medical malpractice cases present a unique set of challenges that require a thorough understanding of both medical and legal issues. In addition to experienced trial attorneys, Ball Eggleston employs the professional expertise of physicians and nurses to help evaluate issues related to each medical malpractice case to thoroughly examine the issues from both a medical and legal prospective.

- Missed or delayed diagnoses
- Lack of informed consent
- Anesthesia errors
- Surgical errors
- Obstetric/labor and delivery errors
- Improperly prescribed or dispensed medication
- Patient neglect
