Proving Liability for Medical Malpractice

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.

  • Common examples of medical malpractice include:
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Failure to provide timely and proper treatment
  • Prescription error
  • Failure to correctly perform surgical techniques
  • Failure to monitor a patient during or after surgery
  • Anesthesia error
  • Failure of nursing staff to provide proper care
  • Birth injury due to obstetric malpractice or delivery room error

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.
