Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Indianapolis

Although our society owes a large debt of gratitude to health care providers, those providers, like everyone else, can and do make mistakes. Medical malpractice, such as mistakenly amputating a limb or leaving surgical tools in a patient's body, can have horrifying consequences. When a patient has been harmed because of health care provider negligence, that patient has a right to seek compensation.

Cerebral Palsy
Lasik

Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is a degenerative and disabling affliction which adversely affects the workings of the central nervous system. The condition typically develops at or soon after birth. Although cerebral palsy can occur during optimal medical care and conditions, it can often result from negligence and/or improper medical care at birth or before the infant leaves the hospital. Triggers of the condition can include:

  • Deprivation of oxygen or nutrition to the brain.
  • Problems with the umbilical cord.
  • Damage to the placenta.
  • Fetal distress.
  • Untreated cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive of seizure issues.

Those with cerebral palsy will require lifelong care, therapy and aid. These services can be quite expensive and stressful.

 

Lasik
Each year, more than a million people undergo laser surgery. Many of those peoples are quite content with their results. However, approximately 50,000 laser surgery patients experience serious vision complication including a reduction in vision, dry eyes, inflammation or difficulty driving at night. These complications may be temporary or permanent. Although most doctors performing the procedure are well-trained and capable, there are still instances of neglect in service that lead to such complications.

 

Needle Stick
Approximately 600,000 to 800,000 needle stick injuries take place each year in the health care industry, according the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. These injuries are caused by such needles as hypodermic needles, blood collection needles, intravenous (IV) stylets and needles used to connect parts of IV delivery systems. Such injuries expose patients and health care workers alike to potentially fatal diseases from blood-borne pathogens including:

  • Diphtheria
  • Hepatitis (HBV) (HCV)
  • Herpes
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
  • Malaria
  • Spotted Fever
