What Is Medical Malpractice?
Claims arising from medical malpractice or a medical provider’s mistakes in treatment of patients, diagnosis of illness, or surgical procedures often involve serious injuries. A claim against a health care professional in Indiana is controlled by laws that were promulgated by the Indiana General Assembly in 1975 by then Governor, and general practice physician, Otis Bowen, M.D. The medical malpractice system controls all aspects of claims against qualified health care in excess of $15,000 (I.C. 34-18-1-1, et seq.)
