Recipients of medical care have the right to expect competent practice and conscientious care from healthcare professionals. Sadly, the medical profession is prone to make errors, from minor acts to outpatients to major incidents in surgery. According to the Society of Actuaries, in 2008 alone preventable medical errors cost Americans $19.5 billion. Worse than this monetary loss is the loss of life, where an estimated 2,500 deaths could have been avoided occur each year.

It's important to be aware of the short amount of time you have to file a medical malpractice claim in the state of Tennessee. Tenn. Code § 28-3-104 states that the statute of limitations for injury claims, including medical malpractice, is one year from the date the injury was discovered. However, you must also file a claim no more than three years after the injury actually occurred. There is only one exception for this - if a foreign object is left inside a patient's body during a procedure.
Our attorneys at Berke, Berke & Berke are experienced and motivated to obtain the highest recovery, for your case and for malpractice victims in the future.
