Birth Injury Lawyers in Johnson City

Protecting the Rights of Injury Victims in East Tennessee

The birth of a new child is a time for celebration, but for some unfortunate families, it is a time of trouble. When a medical professional in the birthing room fails to do their job and prevent all reasonable harm, babies can suffer injuries that will affect them for the rest of their lives. If your newborn was harmed because of the negligence or misconduct of a medical professional, it is crucial that you get help from the Johnson City birth injury lawyers at Meade Law Group. We have decades of experience helping clients obtain the compensation they need to adapt to these new changes.

A doctor’s mistake is not something you should have to pay for. Call (423) 464-7779 or contact Meade Law Group online for a free consultation about your case.

Assumed Risks of Childbirth

Just because a baby is born with a health issue does not make the associated medical staff guilty of misconduct. In fact, there are many instances where doctors work hard to limit the number of problems associated with a birth. However, when a medical professional is distracted, absent, intoxicated, or otherwise negligent, the damage they cause can be catastrophic.

Birth injuries resulting from medical negligence can include:

You do not and should not have to pursue a claim alone. At Meade Law Group, we know how to hold medical professionals and their insurance companies accountable. Let our firm put our experience and resources to work for you and help you decide the best course of action. Our firm maintains strong working relationships with legal experts throughout the East Tennessee community, and we can obtain their help when you need it.

Fighting for the Compensation You Need

When you file a lawsuit against a medical professional, it will be their insurance company that fights back, and they are skilled at denying settlements to injury victims. It is crucial that you have a strong strategy in place early on to ensure you have the best possible chance at a favorable outcome.

Our firm can help you prove that there were problems during delivery, such as:

  • Failure to detect an umbilical cord tangled around the baby’s neck
  • Use of excessive force during delivery
  • Improper use of a vacuum or forceps during extraction
  • Failure to diagnose and treat seizures following delivery

Your confidentiality is important to us, and you can rest assured that we will protect the sensitive details of your case and help you manage your situation in the best way possible. We maintain the confidentiality of your health and medical records throughout the case.
