Indianapolis Medical Malpractice Attorney
A Voice for Those Injured Due to Medical Malpractice
We rely on medical professionals to keep us healthy and treat our injuries or ailments. One of the last things we expect from any healthcare professional managing our care is medical malpractice. Unfortunately, medical malpractice happens at far higher rates than many would suspect. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, approximately 225,000 people a year die due to some form of medical malpractice.
In fact, more people die due to medical mistakes than from car accidents.
The medical malpractice attorneys at the Ward & Ward Law Firm seek to hold medical professionals accountable for the injuries they inflict. We understand the serious consequences of medical malpractice, which can include severe injuries, additional surgeries or medical treatment, time off work, and potentially long term disability. We will fight for your full recovery following any act of medical malpractice.
How Medical Malpractice is Defined
Medical malpractice refers to any act, lack of action, or omission by a healthcare provider or medical facility that fails to exercise adequate care, diligence, or skill, such that the care provided deviates from the accepted standards of practice in the medical profession, and this negligent care results in injury or death to the patient. In other words, medical malpractice refers to mistakes made by doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, or other medical professionals or by a medical facility that result in illness, infection, disfigurement, permanent disability, or death.
Examples of Medical Malpractice
There are many acts that can constitute medical malpractice. The attorneys at the Ward & Ward Law Firm assist those who have been injured or killed due to any of the following:
• Surgical mistakes
• Failure to diagnose a medical condition
• Medical misdiagnosis
• Delayed diagnosis
• Birth injuries
• Prescription drug or medication errors
• Mistakes in non-surgical medical procedures
• Negligent care
• Anesthesia errors
• Medical device errors
• Adverse reactions to medications/treatments
• Dangerous medications
• Injury or illness due to unsanitary or unclean conditions
• Abuse by medical professionals, including physical, mental, or sexual abuse
• Dental malpractice
• Lack of informed consent
• Lack of action
The victims of medical malpractice will often have their lives changed forever. Medical malpractice can result in serious physical injuries which may cause permanent disabilities. The patient will often suffer effects beyond the physical implications of the negligent acts. Patients lose their jobs and lifestyle when they are unable to work due to physical injuries inflicted by negligence. This commonly leads to depression, anxiety, and a host of family or marital issues.
Medical malpractice victims have a right to fair compensation for all of their losses. These loses will commonly include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, permanent disability, and much more. Our attorneys understand the full and severe consequences of medical malpractice. We will fight to see that you obtain the compensation to which you are entitled. While we can never undo the wrong that was inflicted on you by a medical professional, we can assist you in moving on with your life and seeing that justice is served.
