Why is it important to choose an experienced medical malpractice attorney opposed to a general personal injury attorney?
Medical malpractice cases present a unique set of challenges that require a thorough understanding of both medical and legal issues.
In addition to experienced trial and medical malpractice attorneys, Ball Eggleston employs the professional expertise of physicians and nurses to help evaluate issues related to each medical malpractice case to thoroughly examine the issues from both a medical and legal perspective.
How long do I have to file a claim?
In Indiana, you have two years to officially file the complaint.
Do I have the right to a medical malpractice suit if I’m not satisfied with the results of a surgery?
Most surgeries do not carry any guarantee about the results. Therefore, a successful claim, in this case, would mean proving that the physician deviated from the standard procedure of care.
