Brain Injuries in Infants in South Carolina
Brain injuries in infants sometimes occur as a result of medical malpractice during childbirth. Infants can also suffer injuries due to other causes, including shaken baby syndrome, falls and other trauma to the head.
Recent studies indicate that as many as 9,400 infants each year suffer a head injury due to a fall from a high chair.
When an infant experiences a brain injury, the impact of the injury could affect the rest of the child’s life. If someone else’s negligence caused the injury, parents need to understand their right to take legal action to recover compensation from those responsible for harming the child.
