Cincinnati Shaken Baby Syndrome Lawyer

Although we can control our own actions when our children are in our presence, we cannot control the actions of others. When we put our children in the care of another adult, be it a babysitter, caretaker, or otherwise, we instill in them a great deal of trust, and expect that they would treat our child as they would treat their own. When a caretaker violates this trust, it can be one of the most devastating experiences in someone’s life, especially if an injury occurs.

If your child has been the victim of shaken baby syndrome, immediately contact your medical doctor and a Cincinnati shaken baby syndrome lawyer at Stepleton Dugan, LLC at 513-321-7733. We will fight to hold those responsible for your child’s injuries responsible for their actions, both civilly and criminally, and try to earn you the full compensation you deserve under the law.

What is Shaken Baby Syndrome?

Shaken baby syndrome, also called “abusive head trauma”, is a set of symptoms resulting from a person shaking a baby or small child. The neck muscles of infants are not well developed, and cannot provide adequate support for a baby’s head. Thus, when a baby is shaken, the neck is unable to prevent the head from violently whipping back and forth, subjecting the brain to intense acceleration, deceleration, and rotational forces, causing a variety of structural damage.
