Your Advocate In Misdiagnosis Cases
We have successfully represented clients who have suffered serious or fatal injuries due to a misdiagnosis that was caused by a trained professional’s:
- Failure to treat
- Delay of treatment
- Failure to conduct appropriate testing
- Fail to refer to an appropriate specialist
When doctors correctly diagnose and act immediately to treat cancer, a heart attack or a stroke, they can minimize the long-term effects of the condition and give patients best opportunity to heal.
Whether this form of medical negligence occurred in the emergency room, during a routine checkup or a consultation, we can design a compelling case to support your claim.
Supporting Medication Error Claims
From writing a prescription to administering medication, medication errors can occur at any stage of this process. We counsel clients who have been severely or fatally harmed after a medical professional has:
- Prescribed the wrong medicine, has overprescribed or under prescribed
- Prescribed an incorrect dosage
- Filled the prescription with the wrong medication or dosage
- Administered the wrong dosage
Establishing negligence in medical error claims is a complex task. We use our decades of legal experience to challenge doctors, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and other responsible parties in Tennessee courtrooms and in negotiation sessions.
