My question involves malpractice in the state of: Tennessee. I sued a veterinarian in small claims. I won due to his negligence and poor records. He has appealed and it will be a trial de Novo. During the first trial, he kept saying he didn't bring all of the records they had blood on them. He finally snapped and said his word should mean more than any written record. Keep in mind, he has a criminal records. I don't know if I can object to his records he will most likely bring, as I am sure he has been creating new records since. For example, the record he provided had x-ray results dated before the x-rays were dated.
Can I bring up his prior record and his state board reprimands? Do I need a lawyer? The case is only for $738. Thanks.
