As illustrated above, abusive head trauma is not to be taken lightly; it can result in serious side effects, even long-term. Some victims of shaken baby syndrome do not demonstrate signs of the condition right away. No matter what, if you believe your child has been shaken, contact a physician immediately. For more information on the condition or help receiving the best medical care for your child, feel free to contact child injury lawyer Chris Keane. 1-888-592-KIDS.
