The birth of a baby is a process during which many things can go wrong. Only when the entire medical team works together efficiently under the guidance of a competent doctor can an uneventful birth occur.

Lawsuits alleging medical malpractice are common in Tennessee civil courts.

Slip-and-fall accidents: Navigating a lawsuit can be a challenge
