Medical Malpractice

Overcoming the Odds and Fighting for Full Compensation

The odds are stacked against the victim in medical malpractice cases. The opposition has seemingly endless resources to enlist numerous experts. Tennessee experts often refuse to testify for the victims, because the state's doctors are covered by the same insurance company, a company that frowns upon doctors standing up to their peers.

At the law firm of Scott & Cain in Knoxville, we fight to overcome the odds for the victims we represent.

If you or a family member has suffered a serious injury, or if you have lost a loved one due to a wrongful death caused by medical malpractice, we are prepared to fight for you in your pursuit of full compensation.

How We Overcome the Odds in Medical Malpractice Cases

First of all, our attorneys have developed a network of experts from outside the state that are willing to come and provide strong testimony in medical malpractice cases. However, we also have the experience to know that experts aren't the only way to build a case. We don't simply rely on experts. We rely on solid legal representation and skillful use of the law.

We also rely on thorough preparation. Our lawyers take these cases step by step, gathering all of the facts, looking through all documents, even ones that may not be related on the surface. Our strength lies in our ability to build powerful cases, cases that we believe can overcome the opposition, no matter how big they are.

We can take on all types of medical malpractice cases, including:

  • Birth errors (Erb's palsy, cerebral palsy, brain damage from improper fetal monitoring)
  • Surgical errors (laparoscopic surgery errors, wrong site surgery)
  • Medication errors (double dose of drugs, wrong medication)
  • Misdiagnosis (failure to diagnose cancer, misdiagnosis of heart attack and stroke)
  • Emergency room errors (failure to do appropriate testing)
