What Is Doctor Negligence?
Doctors are human beings and not required to be perfect. Malpractice only occurs when your physician was negligent by deviating from the accepted standard of care and you suffer a serious injury as a result.
The following are examples of doctor negligence:
- Failure to diagnose your illness or injury, despite observable symptoms
- Emergency room errors such as failure to diagnose a heart attack
- Surgical errors such as operating on the wrong part of your body or damaging a nearby organ
- Failure to obtain a medical history
- Failure to warn you of possible negative outcomes for a surgery or procedure
- Failure to refer to you a medical specialist as appropriate
- Failure to order appropriate tests

Clinton medical malpractice Attorney Dail Cantrell is one of the few attorneys in East Tennessee who has the experience to handle complex medical negligence cases. His skilled and aggressive representation has yielded a number of significant verdicts and settlements.
