Medical Malpractice in Tennessee: New Developments That Impact Your Practice - on CD
Both the courts and the legislature have been active in recent years in changing the landscape of medical malpractice in Tennessee. The legislature even renamed the tort -- it’s now healthcare liability, not medical malpractice.
The legislature amended the Medical Malpractice Act in 2008 and 2009 by adding the requirements that plaintiffs file a certificate of good faith asserting that the plaintiff has consulted with an expert who has a good faith belief in the validity of the parties’ respective positions. The legislature also required the plaintiff to give healthcare providers pretrial notice of any suit against them.
So what is the impact of these new regs on Tennessee medical malpractice cases? Is substantial compliance with these requirements sufficient? What is the applicability of these requirements when a suit was filed before the amendments but nonsuited and refilled after the changes?
