Everyone makes mistakes, even doctors and health care professionals. But when doctors, nurses, and healthcare providers make mistakes, it can often result in serious injury and possible death to a patient. 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.
