$100,000 settlement for physical abuse by in-home nurse

In 2021, our personal injury lawyers reached a $100,000 settlement in a case where an at-home nurse physically abused a patient. Cases like this one can be very complex, since in Tennessee, even a clear case of assault by a nurse may technically be a “health care liability action,” formerly known as a “medical malpractice” action. For that reason, it is important for attorneys handling such matters to be well versed in all the statutory requirements for bringing medical malpractice lawsuits in Tennessee.

If you or a loved one has suffered hospital abuse, medical abuse, medical neglect, nursing home abuse, nursing home neglect, or any other mistreatment by a health care provider, contact the medical malpractice lawyers at DRS Law today.
