Expertise in Knoxville Medical Malpractice Cases

Brezina Law, PLLC, has particular expertise in the field of medical malpractice, including hospital malpractice, dental malpractice, nursing home malpractice and other Tennessee health care liability actions. These cases are factually and legally complex and require a great deal of effort and attention to resolve. The medical field is highly specialized and technical, and it takes special skill to understand the applicable Standard of Care in a medical setting and determine whether a patient’s harm resulted from a medical provider’s failure to meet that reasonable standard.

Knoville medical malpractice attorney Michael Brezina works closely with J. Tucker Montgomery, JD, MD, an attorney and Physician who is one of the region’s most highly respected and experienced attorneys handling Tennessee health care liability claims. Michael often consults Dr. Montgomery to help assess and work up potential health care liability claims.

Knox County Personal Injury

When you suffer a serious injury because of somebody else’s negligence, it’s only right for them to pay for your medical bills and compensate you for your pain and suffering, the time you missed from work, and other legal damages that result from the accident. That’s why individuals and businesses cover their cars and premises with liability insurance. Unfortunately, insurance companies have something else in mind when it comes to paying claims. With years of experience on the defense side of injury claims, we know all the insurance company tricks for denying liability or devaluing a claim, and we know how to negotiate or litigate a result that gets you the compensation you need and deserve after being hurt in an accident that wasn’t your fault. Call Brezina Law, PLLC, after any Knoxville or East Tennessee motor vehicle accident, boating or jet ski accident, slip and fall, or any other personal injury in Knoxville or East Tennessee.
