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.
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:
- Broken bones
- Swelling in the head
- Oxygen deprivation
- Brain hemorrhage
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy

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:
