Knoxville Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Medical malpractice claims are extremely complicated claims to bring. The Tennessee legislature has gone to great lengths to provide doctors with numerous protections. In order to bring a healthcare liability claim, you must obtain all of your medical records relating to the injury, have an independent doctor review the records, the independent doctor must believe the treating doctor messed up, and pre-suit notice must be provided to the doctor you are suing.
It is important to have an attorney review the facts and circumstances surrounding any medical malpractice claim to avoid being prevented from bring the claim. Like car accidents, a medical malpractice claim must be brought within one (1) year of the injury.
