"Although no doctor wants to cause harm to a patient, the law requires hospitals and physicians to treat their patients with the standard of care required by their profession. When the medical care rendered is substandard and a loved one is seriously hurt, then the law dictates fair compensation."
- Todd Barsumian
Medical malpractice is one of the most difficult areas of tort law. It can involve providers at every level: doctors, specialists, nurses, support staff and even the hospital or clinic itself. A capable lawyer must:
- Research medical literature and be conversant in the condition, care and treatment
- Gather records and notes about care, despite obstacles
- Convince a jury to hold the provider to the applicable standard no matter how accomplished, prominent or mistake-free the provider has been in the past
At Barsumian Law, attorney Todd Barsumian respects the efforts of health care providers who serve our community and carefully reviews those medical care cases upon which he is consulted. Todd has served as a chairman of medical review panels in Indiana at the request of his peers on account of his attention to detail, diligence and sense of fairness in upholding the applicable laws and procedures. However, there is no question that situations will and do arise where medical care falls below the expected standard of care, causing great harm to the patient and devastating families.
Sometimes a caregiver or breadwinner is lost or severely injured or a beloved child will never enjoy the full functionality that other kids will. When this happens, professional standards must be upheld and compensation is due to the victims.
