The Knoxville, Tennessee firm has released an
informative report entitled “How A Tennessee
Medical Malpractice Lawyer Can Help You” to
help people who have sustained injuries as a
result of medical negligence understand the legal
processes involved in filing a lawsuit.
The report explains how an experienced Tennessee medical
malpractice lawyer can evaluate the facts to determine if a client has a
viable medical malpractice claim.
According to research performed at The
National Academy of Sciences and Johns
Hopkins University, between 98,000 and
251,000 deaths occur in the U.S. each year due
to preventable medical errors, and countless
more patients are seriously injured.
Whether a healthcare professional's error constitutes medical
malpractice is a complex legal and medical question to be
discussed with a qualified lawyer.
Attorneys work with physicians, nurses, pharmacists
and other experts to analyze your medical records,
determine the expected standard of care in your
geographic area, uncover other malpractice claims
against the healthcare worker, and determine the
extent of your injuries and financial damage.
The report describes the importance of filing a medical malpractice claim in
time, because under Tennessee law adults are only given a one-year statute
of limitations in which to file a lawsuit.
It also discusses when an act
violates the required standard of
care, because not all bad outcomes
rise to the level of medical neglect.
