Medical Negligence vs. Medical Malpractice

One of the most important relationships in our lives isn’t with a family member, friend, or colleague. It’s with our physician. That relationship can determine both the quality and longevity of your life. It requires an investment of trust on both your parts. When that trust is betrayed, the results can be devastating, as many Indiana medical malpractice victims have discovered.

Medical negligence occurs much more than you might think. However, just because your physician or hospital was negligent doesn’t necessarily mean malpractice exists. In order for malpractice to exist, there must be injuries involved. For example, if your physician accidentally prescribes the wrong medication, it may be considered medical negligence. However, it only becomes medical malpractice if taking that prescription leads to physical or mental harm.

If you feel you’ve been the victim of medical malpractice, give us a call immediately. We know how to determine if your experience warrants a lawsuit. If so, we’ll do everything within our power to get you maximum compensation for what you’ve been through. It costs you nothing to find out your options.
