Under the medical malpractice law, patients in Tennessee who are suffering the consequences of medical errors can pursue financial relief. However, dissatisfaction with a surgical procedure's outcome, or if treatment is not as effective as desired, does not necessarily imply malpractice. A viable malpractice claim typically involves negligence in medication dosage, diagnosis, surgical procedures, treatment, aftercare or health management.
