Medical Malpractice: New Legislation

Tennessee's Medical Malpractice Act has just been recently amended, again, by the General Assembly. The bill is on its way to the Governor. It is anticipated that he will sign it. Once he does, I will have more information for you.

For purposes of information, the bill clears up some of the uncertainties from the prior amendments (Act of Apr. 24, 2008, ch. 919, 2008 Tenn. Pub. Acts 93, codified at Tenn. Code Ann. §§ 29-26-121 to -122) having to do with notice, extension of the statutes of limitations and repose, etc.
