Experienced Advocacy For Victims Of Medical Malpractice
Doctors, nurses and other health care practitioners go through rigorous training. We rely on their expertise when we are most vulnerable. However, all too often, oversights and outright errors lead to tragic results that could have easily been prevented.
It can be devastating to find out that the health care provider you trusted has let you down. At Hassler Kondras Miller LLP, we can help you get to the bottom of what happened. Based in Terre Haute, we represent people across Indiana who have been victims of all types of medical malpractice, including:
- Birth injuries, including cerebral palsy, hypoxia, shoulder dystocia and brachial plexus
- Medication errors, including wrong prescription, wrong dosage or wrong administration
- Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose and treat life-threatening conditions such as strokes, heart attacks and postoperative infections
- Surgical errors such as wrong-site surgeries, bowel perforations, nerve damage, anesthesia errors and left-behind objects
These inexcusable errors can happen in a wide range of settings — hospitals, emergency rooms, clinics, private practices, nursing homes and other care facilities, to name a few. No matter where the mistake happened, we can be your allies in pursuing accountability.
Getting Over The First Legal Hurdle: Medical Review Panels
Indiana law makes it challenging for patients to bring malpractice claims against doctors and other health care practitioners. Before you can even file a malpractice suit, you must first submit the claim to a medical review panel made up of doctors. This panel will determine whether your case has enough merit to move forward.
Our lawyers have a strong track record of success at this critical stage of the proceedings. We take a thorough approach to investigating every claim before submitting it to the review panel. From there, we know how to put together the right evidence and arguments to obtain favorable decisions from the medical review panel.
