We Are Lawyers For Shaken Baby Cases.

Shaken Baby Syndrome is a very severe form of child abuse. Shaken Baby Syndrome occurs when a baby is shaken violently or slammed against a hard object or surface. These actions are especially dangerous for babies because their neck muscles are too weak to support the weight of their heads. A baby has very fragile and immature blood vessels that connect the brain to the skull. When a baby is forcefully shaken, their brain pitches back and forth inside the skull. This movement inside the skull can cause the rupturing of blood vessels and nerves throughout the brain and the tearing of brain tissue.

The delicate structure of a baby's brain may suffer great injury and trauma with this type of shaking injury. The experienced attorneys at Harnick and Harnick are familiar with these types of abusive incidents and the effect they have on the child and their family. The statistics associated with Shaken Baby Syndrome are horrifying. Approximately one in four shaken babies die and the surviving babies have numerous medical problems. A baby with Shaken Baby Syndrome may suffer from any of the following conditions:

  • Blindness
  • Mental retardation
  • Deafness
  • Brain damage
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Dislocated bones
  • Learning and developmental disabilities
  • Paralysis
  • Seizure disorder
