Tennessee has put in place a long series of pre-suit requirements which must be met before you can bring a birth injury or medical malpractice lawsuit. First, each health care provider you intend to sue must be given a pre-suit notice letter which has along with it a HIPAA compliant medical release and a listing of all potential malpractice defendants. The letter and HIPAA compliant release has very specific language which must be included. In addition, any birth injury or medical malpractice lawsuit must also have been reviewed by a qualified doctor who has signed an affidavit stating that the case is meritorious.
Because these requirements are technical and complex, it is very important to hire a lawyer who is experienced in birth injury and medical malpratice lawsuits. Here at the Holton Law Firm we have over 30 years of experience and have collected more than $260 Million dollars for our clients.
