What is Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice is an occurrence in which a medical professional or medical facility did not exercise adequate care, skill or diligence in performing a duty, resulting in a patient’s injury or death. 

For someone who has experienced this, medical malpractice or negligence provides an opportunity to receive compensation for the injuries or loss from which you are suffering. 

It is important to note that the science of medicine is not a perfect science, and doctors are not required to always be right in making a diagnosis. 

However, misdiagnosis becomes malpractice if the doctor is negligent: neglects to get a medical history, order the right tests, or recognize obvious symptoms.

How Do You Prove Medical Malpractice in Tennessee

 In Tennessee, in order to prove medical malpractice, you must prove:

  • The standard of care in the medical profession and commonly practiced in your community or in a similar area.
  • The health care provider failed to comply with that professional standard in your community, committing a “breach” of the standard of care.
  • The patient was injured as a result of this breach of the standard of care. The negligence of the health care provider must be a proximate cause of the injury suffered, but it doesn’t have to be the only cause of the injury.
