Medical Malpractice v. Common Law Negligence

The Court of Appeals recently issued its opinion in Cannon v. McKendree Village, Inc., No. M2008-00456-COA-R3-CV (Tenn. Ct. App. Nov. 25, 2008). The opinion was written by Justice Lee, who was sitting as a special judge for this matter. It offers a good explanation of when a cause of action or claim sounds in medical malpractice or common law negligence. It also touches upon claims made under the Tennessee Adult Protection Act and res ipsa loquitur.

Here's a link to the opinion:
