About Shaken Baby Syndrome
Doctors who find retinal hemorrhages and subdural hematomas (bleeding between
the brain and the skull) in a child are likely to diagnose the condition
as shaken baby syndrome unless the child was in a car accident or fell
from a height of greater than six feet. There is a persistent but erroneous
belief in the medical community that these symptoms can only be caused
by violent shaking of a child, car accidents, and falls from great height.
Our attorneys will call on medical experts to prove otherwise.
