Shaken Baby Syndrome

While shaken baby syndrome often occurs after the baby has already been delivered and taken home, it can happen as a result of the birthing process. This syndrome is caused by a sudden or repeated jostling of an infant and can have serious consequences for an innocent infant, including physical and cognitive damage. While shaken baby syndrome affects many innocent babies in the U.S. each year because of medical professionals’ negligence, sometimes the parents of the injured baby can take legal action to compensate them for the harm and losses that have been occurred.

Recognizing Shaken Baby Syndrome

In the hectic birthing process, a parent might not always realize that a baby has been shaken recklessly, but there are signs of shaken baby syndrome that one can notice subsequently. Some signs of this syndrome include:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Tremors
  • Excessive irritability
  • Nausea / vomiting
  • Irregular eating / difficulty eating
  • Seizures
  • Paralysis

Each of these conditions could indicate that a baby is suffering from shaken baby syndrome or a related birth defect, something which no baby should have to endure at the hands of a medical professional.

Your baby’s birth should not be clouded by the error or negligence of a doctor or nurse involved in the birthing process, particularly when that error causes a syndrome as avoidable as shaken baby syndrome. If this has happened to you or to someone you know, it’s important to know that you do not have to face this situation alone, and that the experienced birth injury attorneys of the Sampson Law Firm may be able to help you fight for financial compensation from the medical practitioner who is responsible for the condition. Call 502-584-5050 to discuss how you can take legal action in your situation.
