Professional Liability Litigation Lawyers

At Burke Costanza & Carberry we have represented a wide variety of professionals in malpractice and errors and omissions litigation. Although we have a heavy concentration of professional liability litigation representing physicians, dentists, and other healthcare providers, the scope of our practice also includes attorneys and design professionals of several types. As in most of our litigation, our professional liability practice extends all across the northern third of Indiana, from the Illinois border to the Ohio border.

In healthcare litigation we have represented hundreds of clients in cases brought under Indiana’s Medical Malpractice Act. We work with our healthcare provider clients to bring cases through the medical review panel process as quickly and efficiently as possible. Historically our clients have included a wide variety of specialties and sub-specialties, from radiologists to obstetricians, plastic surgeons to gastroenterologists, internists to neurosurgeons, and anesthesiologists to physiatrists.

The Indiana Department of Insurance has retained us in several matters to represent its interests in claims against the Patients’ Compensation Fund. We believe in a team approach to healthcare litigation, and each litigation is staffed with a partner, an associate, and a paralegal, so that tasks can be accomplished as quickly, and as cost-efficiently as possible. We maintain a large list of consulting physicians from the finest teaching institutions in Chicago, and we work with these consultants toward our goal of early evaluation of each case. Where necessary, we have experienced, senior trial attorneys ready to try cases, when our clients demand their day in court. We are acutely aware that there is more at stake in malpractice litigation than money, as our clients depend on us to protect their professional reputations and standing in the medical community. We take that responsibility very seriously.

We also bring our vast trial experience to bear in other types of professional liability litigation. Our lawyers have taken a wide variety of professional liability cases to trial in matters involving claims of legal, engineering, architectural, and other types of malpractice. Burke Costanza & Carberry brings the same reputation for exceptional service and cost-effective representation to these cases as we do in our other areas of litigation practice. Our clients have found our alternative fee arrangements to be especially helpful in professional liability litigation.
