Publisher Description

This case comes to us on petition to transfer. Ind. Appellate Rule 11(B)(2)(c). Appellee Charles Sparkman instituted this medical malpractice suit, claiming loss of consortium resulting from the death of his wife, Norma Sparkman. The Medical Review Panel issued a unanimous opinion that Mayhue did not satisfy the standard of care, but that this inadequate care was not a cause of Mr. Sparkman's damages. The trial court denied Appellant Dr. H. Wayne Mayhue's motion for summary judgment and he sought an interlocutory appeal. Ind. Trial Rule 56; Ind. Appellate Rule 4(B)(6). The Court of Appeals affirmed, adopting a "pure" loss of chance doctrine. Mayhue v. Sparkman (1994), Ind.App., 627 N.E.2d 1354, reh'g denied. We grant transfer to decide a single issue: whether Indiana law recognizes, in medical malpractice claims, a separate loss of chance doctrine.
