Medical Malpractice / Hospital Negligence

Medical Malpractice We all expect healthcare provided to us and our family in Knoxville and East Tennessee to be at a level equal to the standards of medical practice consistent with current medical research. Anything less is substandard care that endangers the safety of us and our families. When they serve as jurors in a medical malpractice trial, the people in East Tennessee have the power to set and maintain the level of healthcare they want and expect in their communities. They serve as “guardians of the community” who keep their communities safe and free from substandard medical care by sending a message through their verdicts as to what medical care is acceptable and unacceptable.

Hospitals and medical care facilities must set policies / procedures that ensure medical care provided at their facilities is in accordance with acceptable professional medical standards. Those policies / procedure must be enforced by the hospitals and medical care facilities that set them. Those policies / procedures include making sure that health care professionals granted privileges to practice medicine at their facilities are qualified for the areas of practice they are granted privileges for. When a hospital or medical care facility does not set, follow or enforce those policies / procedures they are negligent.

If you or a loved one in Knoxville or Eastern Tennessee, such as Johnson City, Kingsport, Bristol, Greeneville are a victim of medical malpractice or hospital negligence resulting in serious injury or death, you may call or text Kingsport Medical Malpractice attorney Larry V. Roberts 24/7 at (423) 765-5200.


Trucking Accidents

Truck Accident The leading causes of tractor-trailer crashes in the United States are: prescription drugs (26%), driving too fast (23%), over-the-counter drugs (17%), driver fatigue (13%), alcohol (8%) and illegal drugs (3%).

74.9% of tractor-trailer crashes resulting in death in the United States are a result of a tractor-trailer colliding with another motor-vehicle.

The Interstate highway system in East Tennessee, which includes Interstate 81, Interstate 40, Interstate 26 and Interstate 75, is heavily traveled with tractor-trailer and commercial truck traffic.

If you have lost a loved one or if you or a family member are seriously injured in a tractor-trailer or commercial truck crash you may call or text Knoxville trucking accident lawyer Larry V. Roberts 24/7 at (423) 765-5200.


Nursing Home Negligence / Abuse

Nursing Home Negligence We all want to make sure a family member is cared for and treated with dignity and respect when nursing home or long-term care is required.

The primary injuries suffered by nursing home residents who are not cared for properly or supervised because of understaffing or simply not paying attention are hip fractures and bed sores or pressure ulcers.

Hip fractures, in addition to being painful, result in a nursing home resident losing their mobility and independence, which causes decreased social interaction and loss of quality of life. The risk of hip fracture is greater with residents age 65 and older. One is three aged 50 and over die within 12 months from suffering a hip fracture.

Bed sores or pressure ulcers are a sign of nursing home neglect / abuse that could be prevented by adequate staffing and simply paying attention to following physician orders to regularly move residents who are not mobile or need assistance moving. If bed sores or pressure ulcers develop it will not only be painful and uncomfortable for the resident, but sepsis may develop and lead to death.

If you have a family member who is a victim or nursing home abuse or neglect, you may call or text Knoxville nursing home abuse lawyer Larry V. Roberts 24/7 at (423) 765-5200.


Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accidents The primary cause of motorcycle crashes resulting in serious injury or death is another vehicle turning into the path of the motorcycle.

That vehicle can be a mower traveling out of the median of an interstate highway into the path of a motorcycle on Interstate 75 resulting in permanent nerve damage to the motorcyclist, a car making a left turn into the path of an oncoming motorcycle on a county road in rural Greene County resulting in permanent brain damage to the motorcyclist, or a semi-truck making a left turn into the path of a motorcycle in Sullivan county resulting in the death of the motorcyclist.

If you have lost a loved one or if you or a family member are seriously injured in a motorcycle crash, you may call or text Knoxville motorcycle accident lawyer Larry V. Roberts 24/7 at (423) 765-5200.

Mr. Roberts and staff are very professional and courteous. My former attorney accomplished very little. Mr. Roberts accomplished, in one year, what my former attorney didn’t in three. I highly recommend the Larry V. Roberts firm. Mark
