Shaken Baby Syndrome Lawyer

Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Tucson, Phoenix, Flagstaff and all Arizona cities and communities

When you entrust a daycare facility with the care of your child, you do so with a reasonable understanding that the professionals employed within that establishment will work to the best of their abilities to provide a safe and nurturing environment for your son or daughter. Sadly, this is not always the case. Too often, negligent or abusive daycare workers take actions that cause the children in their care unnecessary physical harm. Violently shaking a child, while it may not leave any visible bruises, can cause severe and sometimes permanent injuries.

If your child now suffers from shaken baby syndrome, also known as abusive head trauma (AHT), due to the action of a childcare facility employee, it may be appropriate to pursue a civil lawsuit in the matter. To learn more about your legal rights, contact the Tucson, Phoenix, and Flagstaff shaken baby syndrome lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C., to speak with a knowledgeable adviser regarding the harm inflicted on your child.

Shaken Baby Syndrome Effects

It is understandable that a childcare facility employee might grow frustrated with the children for whom they are responsible. Young children lack many basic communication skills and so must resort to expressive means involving crying, screaming, or even physical aggression. But as stressful as this may be for a daycare worker, there is no excuse for shaking a child. The following are some of the symptoms and effects that may be associated with shaken baby syndrome:

  • Subdural hematoma
  • Retinal detachment
  • Coma
  • Seizures
  • Convulsions
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Extreme lethargy
