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 and medical malpractice attorneys, Ball Eggleston employs the professional expertise of physicians and nurses to help evaluate issues related to each medical malpractice case and to thoroughly examine the issues from both a medical and legal perspective.
In Indiana, you usually have two years from the injury to file a proposed complaint with the Indiana Department of Insurance.
In some situations, notice must be given before this or you lose your claim. In limited other situations, a longer period is allowed. The calculation of the time period to file your claim can be different from regular personal injury claims.
Make sure you speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney to determine which limitations apply to your specific medical malpractice case.
