Representing Tennessee Victims of Catastrophic Brain Injuries
Brain injuries often result from trauma, such as an auto accident or a violent blow to the head. They can range from relatively mild traumatic brain injury, such as a concussion, to catastrophic injuries that kill or permanently disable. Brain injuries can also occur as a result of failures on the part of medical care. While some brain injuries are unavoidable, others can—and should—be avoided with prompt, careful care and management.
Brain injury attorneys handling these injury cases should have a strong understanding of the difficulties individuals experience as a result of even mild brain injuries. The attorney should be familiar with experts who can assist in explaining these effects, from mild to catastrophic injuries.
The proven Johnson City brain injury attorneys at The Haynes Firm are ready to provide this kind of diligence and ensure that your brain injury claim in compellingly put forth before the law.

The Effects of Brain Injuries
Any type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can have serious, long-lasting repercussions for the victim. Additionally, if the victim is disabled as a result of his or her TBI, family members and loved ones will likely need to alter their lives to provide necessary care and support.
Even mild traumatic injuries (sometimes called “concussions”) can cause:
- Memory loss
- Chronic headache
- Visual problems
- Mood changes
If you or a child experiences any of these symptoms after even mild trauma to the head, a physician should be seen without delay.
Moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries can cause a wide variety of complications, including:
- Persistent loss of consciousness
- Permanent paralysis
- Sensory losses
- Severe emotional damage
- Speech and communication problems

Where to begin. I would certainly recommend the Haynes Law Firm to everyone. From the beginning to the end their professionalism was outstanding. This experience was totally new for us and Olen Haynes, Jr. made us feel at ease. He took the time to explain everything in detail and was excellent in settling our case. I can’t say enough about this law firm.
Olen Haynes Jr. came highly recommended and was the best choice I could have made following my injury. From our first meeting, I felt confident and completely at ease knowing he was handling my case. As a veteran myself, I took additional comfort in knowing he was a veteran. He and his staff are certainly knowledgeable and professional, but above that I felt as if I was being taken care of by my family. That may sound disingenuous, but throughout his handling of my case, I felt totally at peace and was confident of the best possible outcome. In conclusion, Olen is someone I gladly call my friend now… as well as his staff.
