Medical Malpractice

The term “medical malpractice” refers to negligence on the part of various providers of health-care services—such as doctors, nurses, physicians’ assistants, etc. Typical examples of medical malpractice include surgical errors, medical errors that lead to birth injuries, failure to diagnose an illness, misdiagnosis, and errors in prescribing medications.

When patients are injured as a result of medical malpractice, the health care providers (or their employers) may be required to compensate the injured patients for their resulting medical bills, their pain and suffering, wages lost as a result of the injury, and more.

From its offices in Knoxville as well as Blount County, Tennessee, the Hartsoe Law Firm handles selected medical malpractice cases. Attorney Mark Hartsoe has more than 27 years of experience in representing clients who were injured by substandard medical care. He has also represented families who lost a loved one as a result of medical malpractice; and who therefore pursued compensation through a claim of wrongful death. Mr. Hartsoe is extremely selective in choosing the potential medical malpractice cases that he agrees to pursue.

The fact that health care services failed to help someone doesn’t necessarily mean that the providers involved were guilty of medical malpractice. In order to prevail in a medical malpractice case, the injured party must prove that a hospital, nurse, doctor, or other medical professional provided medical care that fell below the minimal acceptable level of professional practice. In addition, the injured person must demonstrate that the medical malpractice was, in fact, the cause of the harm for which he or she is seeking compensation.

As an experienced Maryville Personal Injury Attorney, Mr. Hartsoe works with doctors and expert witnesses to evaluate each potential medical malpractice case in order to determine whether or not medical negligence has occurred.

If you are concerned that you or a loved one received substandard medical care, in any Tennessee location, please contact the Hartsoe Law Firm as soon as possible.

Client Reviews
Mark: We would like to thank you for all the hard work you put in winning our medical malpractice lawsuit. The money we were awarded will certainly change our lives. The fact that you never treated us like clients but instead like friends meant so much to us. Again from our hearts we say thank you. Client
The Peroulas family and I deeply appreciate your help and expertise. Although I am certain that it would have been most enjoyable to work with you on the trial, my clients are happy with what they and I believe to be a very favorable settlement, thanks in large part to your guidance. James S. Tipton, Jr.
We appreciate the great job that you did on our case. You watched out for our interest even before you took our case. Mark Hartsoe did a wonderful job. He showed great expertise as he went up against a multi-national corporation with multiple lawyers. He had a thorough understanding of the many details and events that occurred. We were especially impressed with his skill during mediation. Mark’s PowerPoint presentation was excellent, overwhelming the opposition. It was refreshing to work with someone who does what he says he will and truly had our best interest in mind. Thank you for everything. Dennis and Julie Greene
Just a short note to let you know we appreciate all of your hard work! Rhonda and Mike Cherrin
We would very much appreciate it if you would be so kind as to e-mail to our office the Powerpoint presentation that you made at the commencement of the mediation. Our General Manger was very impressed and would like to show it to the CEO and may in turn show it to other corporate personnel as an example of what can happen to the same or similar case when placed in the hands of an excellent lawyer such as Mark Hartsoe.
