Medical Malpractice Procedures

Indiana medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or hospital causes injury to a patient by failing to provide them with acceptable care.

Patient’s Procedures

If you believe you have been the victim of Indiana medical malpractice:
  • Be patient. Sometimes doctors will admit there has been a mistake—either way, your case cannot be won unless you and your attorney can prove you suffered an injury.
  • Get organized. Compile all of your medical information including: prescription bottles; a list of the names of all your doctors and hospitals; the reason you received treatment; the month and year of your treatment; and the drug dosage of any medication
  • Stay composed. Only discuss your case with your medical malpractice lawyer. Stay composed and when the time is right, you will have the chance to share your story.

Legal Procedures

If you believe you have been the victim of Indiana medical malpractice:
  • the patient suffered an injury
  • the doctor or hospital was responsible for providing your care
  • the doctor or hospital caused the injury
  • the doctor or hospital failed to provide a level of care consistent with acceptable medical standards

Indiana Dental Malpractice Lawyers

Medical malpractice is often associated with doctors or nurses, though any healthcare provider can commit malpractice. Serious injuries and long-term health problems can result from negligence by dental healthcare providers. Mistakes can happen during cosmetic procedures, oral surgeries, or routine cleanings and fillings.

Our dental malpractice team of paralegals, nurses, and attorneys know the law and your rights in Indiana. We have the knowledge and resources to handle a variety of dental malpractice claims such as:

  • Surgical mistakes
    The sharp instruments used to perform oral surgery and other dental procedures can puncture sensitive areas, causing bleeding and nerve damage.
  • Anesthesia complications
    From root canals to tooth extractions, anesthesia is often used by dentists. But when the amount of anesthesia used is not carefully managed, patients can experience extreme pain, illness, coma, or even death.
  • Misdiagnosis
    Dentists have a duty to screen patients for oral diseases and cancers, and failure to provide a timely diagnosis can result in a worsened prognosis or death.
  • Contamination
    When dentists and technicians neglect to properly sterilize their instruments and treatment environments, they put patients at risk of infection and disease.

If you or someone you love was harmed by a dentist’s failure to provide acceptable care, call Stewart & Stewart. Our staff is available 24/7, and we’re here to help you get started.
