MEMPHIS MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEYS
Also Representing Families In Nursing Home Abuse Or Negligence
We are fortunate to live in an era when doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are more skilled than ever, and technological advancements have paved the way for amazing medical accomplishments. Unfortunately, when mistakes are made while treating patients, the consequences can be dire.
If a medical error has resulted in an injury to you or a family member, or the death of a family member, the experienced attorneys at Taylor & Toon, PLLC, in Memphis will help you pursue compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit. Our lawyers have more than 30 years of cumulative experience, including a number of successful outcomes in medical malpractice cases.
Under Tennessee law, legal action in medical malpractice cases must be taken within one year of the event that caused the injury or death. Because the fact-finding process can take several months, it is critical to contact a medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible after the incident occurs.
These cases require extensive resources and thorough knowledge of the law as it applies to medical negligence. We evaluate malpractice cases carefully before accepting them, and rely on an extensive network of highly regarded medical professionals to vet them as well. By pursuing only those cases that meet our high level of review, we are able to provide personalized legal representation that is designed to maximize the amount you recover.
Medical malpractice cases can be brought against doctors, nurses, psychologists, medical technicians, pharmacists and other professionals in the medical field.
Memphis Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys
We also advocate on behalf of elderly individuals who have been injured as a result of nursing home abuse or nursing home neglect. Families rely on nursing home personnel to provide top-notch, around-the-clock care for elderly family members who are unable to live independently. If a loved one sustained injuries, whether through neglect or intentional abuse, the facility should be penalized and your loved one should be compensated.
Abuse can be physical, psychological or sexual. Signs of abuse or neglect include:
- Pressure sores
- Weight loss
- Unexplained bruises, cuts or scratches
- Lack of basic hygiene
- Loss of enthusiasm for life
- Loss of mental acuity
Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Of course, the worst-case scenario is a medical mistake or nursing home incident that results in death. We represent clients in Memphis and throughout west Tennessee in wrongful death cases. In these lawsuits, we work to recover compensation for survivors for medical bills, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and the loss of consortium (love and affection).
Contact our medical malpractice attorneys to discuss your medical malpractice or nursing home neglect case. We will review the facts and provide a candid assessment of your case during a free, no-obligation consultation.
All cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, which means you will not pay attorney fees unless we obtain a financial recovery for you, either through negotiation or a court verdict.
