Malpractice Misdiagnosis Verdict in Indiana

A Marion County Indiana jury has ordered several doctors and health care providers in Indianapolis to pay $5 million to a woman with a ruptured diaphragm who was misdiagnosed in 2000. The misdiagnosis led to the removal of a third of her stomach and ongoing complications, an attorney for the woman said. State medical malpractice caps will limit the award to $1.25 million.
