Let’s take a page to discuss Medical Malpractice settlements in Indiana, and the strategy employed by the lawyers for malpractice at Montross Miller LLP when accepting a potential claim and moving forward with discovery and litigation.
First, be aware that any healthcare professional charged with administering a standard of care to a patient could be liable for malpractice, neglect, negligence or abuse. Such persons and corporate entities include (but not limited to) doctor, hospital, nurse, nursing home, chiropractor, pharmacy or pharmacist. Additionally, there are even occurrences of dental malpractice.
In the vast majority of instances, these people are competent, well-meaning professionals and fellow citizens who intend only to perform their noble profession of healing with all their skill, knowledge and ability. In the rare case of legitimate, demonstrable Medical Malpractice, the award of an adequate financial settlement to the injured or afflicted party (i.e., our client) is justified – and we’ll prove it in court, if necessary.
Many Medical Malpractice claims never see an Indiana courtroom. In some cases, Med Mal settlements are made before litigation goes to jury trial, dealing with healthcare corporations or their insurance companies. One of the steps along Montross Miller’s process is to ascertain all salient facts of a prospective Medical Malpractice claim, investigate and research what the standard of care should have been and exactly how it was breached, and decide whether and how to proceed with the most compelling argument possible.
There’s much more to discuss as to the particulars of Medical Malpractice settlements in Indiana, and much of that discussion revolves around the Indiana Medical Malpractice Act, which has control over Med Mal lawsuits in the Hoosier State in terms of scope of settlements and order of procedures.
