• Medical malpractice or negligence
If you were harmed by a health care professional’s failure to use the appropriate level of care in providing treatment, you may be able to recover compensation. Most medical malpractice lawsuits require retaining an expert to determine the accepted standard of care and explain what the defendant did that fell short of this standard, as well as how the inappropriate conduct caused the patient’s injuries.

• Automobile accident
Most car accidents are preventable and occur as a result of errors by one or more drivers. To prove liability, you will need to establish by a preponderance of the evidence that the driver owed you a duty of care, which was breached, and that your injuries resulted from the driver’s carelessness. Damages that may be available in these cases often include medical expenses, lost income, mental anguish, loss of consortium and pain and suffering.

• Products liability or negligence
When you buy a toy, car, medication or other product, you do not expect to be hurt. If you are injured, you may have grounds to file a product liability lawsuit. There are three types of defects that may be actionable: manufacturing, design and marketing (also known as failure to warn). Manufacturers may be held accountable under multiple different theories, including strict liability, negligence, breach of warranty and concealment. For example, if you take a drug that causes you to develop cancer, but you were not told that a potential side effect of the drug was developing cancer, you may have grounds to hold the manufacturer strictly liable for its failure to warn you of the risk.

• Intentional torts
A “tort” is any act that causes harm to someone’s person, property or even reputation. In Tennessee law, one person (the plaintiff) can sue another person (the defendant) for committing a tort. Successful plaintiffs who win their tort case can receive compensation from the defendant. This compensation, known as damages, is usually in the form of money and is meant to make up for the harm done to the plaintiff. Click here to contact DJ with intentional tort questions or concerns.
