Is there a limit on how much a person can recover for a malpractice claim?

Yes, under Indiana law, the defendant and the insurance carrier are responsible for the first $400,000 of damages. The Indiana Department of Insurance is responsible to pay for any additional damages up to a maximum of $1,250,000.

If a jury were to award a higher amount, the judge will automatically reduce the award to the statutory maximum recovery of $1,650,000.
