Attorneys at The Cave Law Firm, PLLC, in Greeneville and Tri-Cities, Tennessee, are dedicated to obtaining fair compensation for clients who were injured as a result of negligence by medical professionals. During the years since our founding in 1974, our attorneys have succeeded in obtaining needed compensation for hundreds of clients who suffered injuries as a result of medical malpractice by a physician, nurse, pharmacist or hospital.
One of the reasons we have been successful with medical malpractice cases is our legal assistant, Katherine A. Hopek.

Her presence contributes significantly to the success of our law firm in medical malpractice cases.What Constitutes Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice cases can be complicated and require the evaluation of medical experts. At our law firm, we consult with specialists to determine whether the client was provided with treatment that met the acceptable standard of medical care. The input of these professionals allows us to build strong cases. Examples of medical malpractice include the following:
- Misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or failure to diagnose illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and other serious conditions
- Failure to conduct appropriate tests
- Surgical errors such as operating on the wrong body part or leaving medical instruments inside the patient
- Birth injuries that result in abrasions, palsy, developmental delays
- Medication, prescription and anesthesia errors
- Emergency room errors
In addition to working to obtain fair compensation for patients who were injured by medical providers, we also make sure that clients obtain the proper treatment so that they can begin to recover from their injuries.
Remember — Medical malpractice claims must be filed within one year of the accident or event that caused your injuries. Consult an attorney as soon as you can.Contact Us
