One of the scariest and most prevalent forms of daycare abuse to infants and toddlers is Shaken Baby Syndrome. If you're unfamiliar with it, Shaken Baby Syndrome is when an infant or toddler is violently shaken by a caregiver, possibly causing some serious damage to the brain.
It usually happens when a caregiver loses their patience and physically shakes a baby until it goes quiet. Since babies have fragile blood vessels and weak necks that cannot support their heads, being violently shaken may result in:
- bleeding in the brain
Symptoms of Shaken Baby Syndrome could be:
- breathing issues
- unresponsiveness, which are all signs of severe brain damage.
These types of injuries are very serious and can change family's lives forever. If you believe your child is a victim of Shaken Baby Syndrome caused by a daycare, contact us. It's important that you hold the daycare accountable for the devastation caused to your family.
