In order to recover damages for medical malpractice, you must establish that your health care provider breached the standard of care—accepted medical practices and procedures when treating patients with a similar medical condition and history—while diagnosing or treating you.
Next, you must show that a breach of the standard of care caused your injury. You must also hire an expert witness to prove your case by explaining why the defendant failed to meet the standard of care.
According to Tennessee malpractice law, a medical malpractice claim must be brought within one year after the patient discovers the injury. However, the patient has up to three years from the date that the health care provider breached the standard of care to file a lawsuit. If a foreign object was left inside a patient, this time limit does not apply.
Whether you suffered an injury or the untimely loss of a loved one due to medical malpractice, our firm is more than prepared to advocate on your behalf. We can investigate your injury, collect and analyze the evidence, hire a medical expert witness, and develop an effective strategy just for you. Do not wait until it is too late to obtain the monetary damages you need to make the best recovery possible from injury.
