By releasing this report the law firm aims 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 the 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 the client’s medical records, determine the expected standard of care in their geographic area, uncover other malpractice claims against the healthcare professional, and determine the extent of their injuries and financial damages.

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.

The Law Office of Burroughs & Capps has been helping injured clients near Knoxville, Tennessee since 1999. Its lawyers are dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes in personal injury matters, and they have expertise in practice areas such as: medical malpractice, wrongful death, insurance/bad faith, dog bites, auto accidents, and government claims.

A satisfied client said: “Any time I called, they were there for me and ready to listen. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case, and even after it was over, they made it clear that I could still call with any questions that may come up in the future.”
