Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice law in Tennessee can be onerous. Quite frankly, the physician’s malpractice insurance lobby has done a good job in selling the idea that doctors have been sued so much, they just can’t stay in business. HOWEVER, my personal experience is that I have never seen a physician driving an old, beat-up car to his shot-gun shack on the poor side of town. The reality is that most physicians are doing quite well despite what the insurance lobby is asserting. In fact, here are the real facts as set forth in the State of Tennessee 2011 Medical Malpractice Claims Report:

2011 Medical Marlpractice Claims Report

Here’s an interesting quote out of that report:

“In all, it was reported that there were one hundred ninety-five (195) court judgments in 2010. It was reported that one hundred eighty-five (185) of these judgments resulted in favorable rulings for the defendant where no damages were awarded to the claimant. . . .” See Report at Page 7.

Juries gone wild? That does not seem to be the case.
