People who are treated by psychologists or psychiatrists often form strong bonds with them. They trust their therapist or doctor to help them through a difficult time or diagnose and treat a serious emotional disorder. Mental health professionals have a duty of care to uphold an ethical therapist-patient relationship. Unfortunately, some psychologists, psychiatrists or therapists fail to uphold this duty and may take advantage of a vulnerable patient.

If you or a loved one was harmed by a mental health professional, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. We are experienced eastern Tennessee psychologist lawyers who work hard to hold negligent professionals accountable.
