Danville Shaken Baby Syndrome Attorneys

Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) is a type of head injury that occurs in newborns and other young children. While some cases of SBS occur when a caretaker shakes a baby violently, such an injury might be the result of any sudden jarring motion of the child. The greatest risk with SBS is brain injury, though there are other injuries associated with the abuse. The tragedy of this situation is that it is nearly entirely preventable, whether the cause is caretakers losing their patience or a doctor or other medical professional mishandling a child. Either way, the tragedy is that SBS is entirely preventable.

Symptoms of Shaken Baby Syndrome

SBS can involve many serious complications. It is important that if a newborn has suffered from SBS during the labor and delivery process that he or she receives swift treatment. Some signs of SBS are:

  • Seizures
  • Stiff posture
  • Inability to focus, dazed
  • Lethargy
  • Less responsive than normal

Tragically, many SBS victims do not survive their injuries, and many of those who do survive have lifelong physical impairments. A Danville birth injury attorney can help you to understand your legal rights in this trying time.
