We place substantial trust in doctors, nurses and health care professionals. Our lives can depend on it. When medical professionals abuse that trust, catastrophic injuries or death can result.
We believe that patients who entrust their health to medical professionals have a right to be treated with care and consideration. Medical malpractice can have drastic, life-altering effects, and patients deserve fair compensation when injury results from avoidable errors made by medical professionals. Since the inception of our firm, we have actively pursued claims for victims of medical malpractice throughout Tennessee.
We have successfully handled a wide range of medical malpractice matters including those involving:
- Surgical errors
- Failure to diagnose conditions or diseases
- Medication errors
- Nursing errors
- Failed or inappropriately performed plastic surgery procedures
- Transfusion-transmitted diseases
- Negligent failure to prevent a patient from harming himself or others
- Failure to timely diagnose and treat
- Birth injuries caused by negligence
- Emergency room errors
Medical malpractice cases, which in Tennessee are also called health care liability cases, are complex and hard fought because medical providers and professionals are not apt to admit error or liability. To receive just compensation for medical malpractice, an injured party must find a doctor or medical health professional willing to testify that the injury was caused by medical negligence. Our firm has the knowledge and resources to handle even the most complex medical malpractice cases.
