Medical Malpractice Defense
The attorneys of Pitcher Thompson PC understand that each medical malpractice claim is a serious matter to every health care provider, both professionally and personally. From the initial filing of a Complaint, we are prepared to provide explanation, education and understanding of the legal process to our health care clients. Using our years of combined experience in defending health care providers, we work with our clients to understand and evaluate the medical issues, including a determination of how best to defend the care. We pride ourselves on being available and responsive to address any questions or concerns.
Effective representation of health care providers most often requires a detailed understanding of the Indiana Medical Malpractice Act, which provides that every medical malpractice claim against a qualified health care provider must first be presented to a Medical Review Panel composed of three health care providers. Pitcher Thompson attorneys are closely familiar with the process of panel formation and presentation of evidence, and we work closely with health care clients and experts as necessary to provide persuasive evidence to the Medical Review Panel. Once the Medical Review Panel process is complete, Plaintiffs may elect to pursue litigation in court. With years of trial experience, we are prepared to defend our clients through trial.
