Healthcare Workers Don’t Always Admit Their Mistakes

Being a victim of medical malpractice is devastating. You trusted your doctor, surgeon, or other healthcare provider to do his or her best when treating your illness or injury, but carelessness, oversights, or sheer negligence caused you to suffer additional—yet avoidable—side effects and complications.

To make matters worse, hospitals have legal representation in place to help protect them against these claims, and many healthcare providers won’t admit that they made mistakes that put their patients’ health at risk. That means it’s their word against yours, and that can be a difficult battle to win on your own.

At Stewart & Stewart, our Indiana medical malpractice attorneys know how to level the playing field for innocent victims like you. You don’t have to go up against a big hospital alone. Let us take on your claim and fight to maximize your chances of receiving compensation by:

  • Proving malpractice occurred – Whether it was a misdiagnosis, a surgical error, or a prescription error, our legal team is ready to investigate your doctor or healthcare provider’s actions to determine when and where the malpractice occurred.
  • Proving your injury or illness is linked to malpractice – Proving that your healthcare provider made an avoidable mistake isn’t always enough. But we know what steps to take to obtain and present evidence that conclusively links your injury or illness to your doctor’s negligence.

It’s important to act quickly if you suspect you’re a victim of medical malpractice. Evidence can quickly disappear, making it more difficult to prove what happened, so don’t wait. Call us today for a free consultation.
