A Little Off Topic – Medical Malpractice Claims

I do not handle medical malpractice claims; however, I found the following statistics interesting.  In 2011, there were 146 judgments entered in Tennessee concerning medical malpractice claims. Out of the 146 judgments entered, 140 resulted in favorable rulings for the defendant. In other words, about 4% of all medical malpractice judgments entered in the state of Tennessee in 2011 resulting in an award for the plaintiff. Only five of those judgments were paid, and three were for less than $100k.
