Carmel Medical Malpractice

Carmel, Indiana, the largest suburb of Indianapolis, is located just north of Indianapolis. Indiana’s fifth largest city with a population of 79,191 people as of the 2010 census, the Census Bureau estimates the town to have a population of 91,065 people by the year 2016

Straddling the US Highway 31 corridor, Carmel provides an easy commute south into Indianapolis, or north to Kokomo or Anderson. Partly due to its convenient location, but also due to a large number of local businesses and amenities, Carmel was voted to be one of the best communities in which to live in the United States multiple times between the years of 2012 and 2017 by organizations such as CNN Money Magazine and Niche.com.

The city of Carmel was laid out in 1837 and initially named Bethlehem. In the year 1874, the town officially incorporated and assumed the name, Carmel. The growing metropolitan development in Indianapolis brought an influx of businesses such as Eli Lilly and Company, founded in 1876 in the far northern area of Indianapolis.

In 1882, the Monon Railroad began laying railroad track in Clay Township, connecting Sheridan through Carmel, to Westfield and south into Indianapolis. The official depot for Carmel opened in 1883. The rail station remained open until 1974. The rail lines have since been repurposed as walking paths used to connect Hamilton County to Indianapolis with 23.1 miles of continuous trail.

With continued growth promoted by the proximity to Indianapolis, Carmel’s population grew steadily by more than 1,000 people per year around the year 1970 and maintained that rate of growth late into the 1980’s. In the year 1976, Carmel elected its first Mayor and officially joined the ranks of Indiana’s cities.

As the importance of rail to community development faded, Carmel turned its efforts to highway and road development. The city is crisscrossed by US-31, US-52, US-421, I-465, and Keystone Parkway. These roads held the key to the city’s continued significance and growth. While they allowed convenient access to any businesses or entertainment in the area, they also pose risks. Whenever commuting or traveling along an interstate or highway, be sure to use extreme caution to minimize the risk of automobile incident or personal injury.

Since the turn of the century, Carmel has redoubled efforts at city beautification and infrastructure development. The city has used roundabouts in efforts to expedite traffic patterns as well as providing a means for more green space on the roads. There has also been a significant push for downtown activities and growth, which led to the construction of the Palladium, the Civic Theater, and the scenic downtown City Center complex which offers a location for shopping and dining as well as high-quality apartment style living.

Events such as summer concerts, the Rollfast Gran Fondo, the international art festival, and the weekly seasonal Carmel farmers market- which opened for the first time in 1998 draw large crowds to visit or even move to the Carmel area.

Though nobody hopes to have to make a trip to the hospital, Carmel boasts several clinics and medical facilities staffed with qualified healthcare providers ready to give the highest quality of care with state of the art equipment. While anyone receiving treatment should always feel confident in the quality of their care, accidents may, and do occur. Do not allow a medical accident or injury, or worse yet, medical malpractice to prevent you from caring for yourself or a loved one. Contact the attorney’s at Montross Miller to pursue full restitution for personal injury to you or your loved one.

My 15-year-old son suffered a life-altering closed head injury that left him disabled for life when he was injured in a truck accident. I went to Mike Miller for help. Mike and the law firm were the greatest people I have ever been around. Everything they did was excellent, above and beyond the call of duty. They were able to recover enough to let me leave my job and devote full time care for my son. To this day, they are more than happy to talk with me and take care of anything that comes up. J.M.

Words cannot express how tremendously grateful my husband and I are to Nate and his team during the most difficult times in our lives. He walked us through every step with the up most respect, never hesitating to answer any and all questions, or simply giving us a word of encouragement. It was a relief to know that he was always on our side, fighting for our case and believing that it was worth fighting for. C.L.

A patient with a stroke was not transferred to a hospital capable of treating her. The client said, "We worked with Brad Kallmyer who was phenomenal. He listened well and was very thorough and professional. I give all the credit to Brad. The staff was very kind, very understanding. They made my mom feel important. Brad's integrity and the firm came through for us. They were great." C.M.

Scott did a truly amazing job for us. It was not just about the legal work; he was there for us every step of the way. From rehab, through settlement and even making sure appropriate financial arrangements were in place for the future. He went to bat for us with health care providers and workman's comp people. He fights for what is right. He really cared about what happened to my husband. Now, he will be taken care of for the rest of his life. T.R.
