How can I find out if my doctor has had any medical malpractice claims?

The Indiana Department of Insurance has information on all medical malpractice claims against registered doctors since 1976. You can check on your doctor by calling 317-232-5430.

However, don't jump to any conclusions just because your doctor has had a medical malpractice claim. Most doctors have had some sort of claim brought against them. The number of claims depends on how long the doctor has been in practice and what his or her specialty is. Some specialties are more subject to claims than others. If, however, you see a pattern of a number of claims, it may raise questions about your doctor.
