§47.32 Pre-Suit Notice Requirement
Author’s Note: Effective October 1, 2008, a patient was required to give formal notice to defendants before filing a medical malpractice case. There were numerous problems with the legislation, and new legislation was passed and became effective July 1, 2009. The 2009 legislation is codified at T.C.A. §29-26-121and 122. At the time this book went to press, there were no cases interpreting the notice requirement. Those contemplating filing a medical malpractice case may find it helpful to read the author’s article, “The New New Medical Malpractice Notice and Certificate of Good Faith Statutes,” Tennessee Bar Journal¸ Vol. 45, No. 7 (July 2009).
