Compassionately Guiding You & Your Family through Difficult Times
Having a baby who has suffered injury during birth can be devastating. Sometimes the situation is unavoidable; other times, however, birth injuries can be avoided through reasonable medical care before, during, and after the birthing process.
Birth injuries can be some of the most life-altering injuries for a child. Added to emotional pain, these injuries often place significant financial strain upon the family. The Haynes Firm can support your family during this time by providing understanding and compassionate legal representation for your birth injury. We recognize how difficult managing life can be when parenting a special needs child. Our Johnson City birth injury lawyers want to help.
Common Birth Injuries
Sadly, medical negligence can and does lead to countless birth injuries in the U.S. every year. These injuries vary greatly, both in type and severity, largely depending on the nature of the error that occurred.

- Cerebral palsy
- Erb's palsy
- Brachial plexus palsy, also known as shoulder dystocia
- Urological injuries
- Nerve and brain damage
- Broken bones and fractures
- Forceps/vacuum errors
- Facial paralysis
Regardless of the type of birth injury your child suffered, he or she may now face a lifetime of challenges. At The Haynes Firm, we understand that these challenges often come with a hefty price tag. You should not have to navigate costly medical treatment and other financial difficulties related to your child’s injuries on your own. Our Johnson City birth injury lawyers can help you seek fair compensation.
Cerebral Palsy Lawyer in Tennessee
Cerebral palsy is a neurological condition that often results from oxygen deprivation, lack of blood flow to the brain, or developmental abnormality, usually before or during birth. Parents of children who receive this diagnosis are often devastated and overwhelmed as they consider the future for their child and ponder how they will care for the child’s special needs.
A parent’s dreams for their child are often crushed by a cerebral palsy diagnosis. Make no mistake—individuals with cerebral palsy are beautiful people who can live rewarding lives, and parents often credit raising a child with special needs for helping them see hope and promise in life and introducing them to a world with an enlightened perspective. But the challenges faced by children with this diagnosis, and the parents who will care for them, are undeniable. No one would deny that the stress placed on these parents—financially and otherwise—is enormous and frightening.
Focused on Your Recovery
Any lawyer handling this type of case should have a familiarity with reviewing fetal monitor strips and other common indicators of fetal distress. The attorney must have the resources and knowledge to consult with leading physicians to increase the likelihood that a viable birth injury case can result in a successful outcome. These cases must be handled with great care, as there are numerous ways in which a claim can be derailed.
At The Haynes Firm, our medical malpractice attorneys are dedicated to obtaining justice on behalf of children that are injured at birth due to a professional’s failure to provide medical care in a reasonable fashion.

Every parent wants their child to grow up with the greatest opportunity possible for their personal success. When a child has suffered from an avoidable birth injury, that success often depends on obtaining appropriate compensation to open opportunities that would not otherwise exist. When you trust your child’s birth injury case to our Johnson City birth injury attorneys, your desire for your child’s future success becomes our own.
