Due to increased demands and rising costs, insurance companies often control how doctors practice medicine, the number of patients seen, and how much time is spent with patients. This practice endangers patients and has increased the number of medical negligence claims. At the Law Offices of Rhonda Crabtree, she is dedicated to helping people who have been injured as a result of medical negligence. Nashville Personal Injury attorney Rhonda Crabtree aggressively seeks the compensation her clients need to make a full recovery.

The laws governing medical negligence claims are strict in the state of Tennessee. As soon as you are aware of your injuries, you need to take action: the sooner you do so, the greater the likelihood Rhonda Crabtree will be able to gather all of the evidence needed to prove your case. Before a person can sue a doctor for medical negligence, he or she must present testimony from an expert, another doctor, to prove that the doctor responsible did not meet the standard of care. Also, in Tennessee, the law states that any expert witness must be from Tennessee or in a state that borders Tennessee.
