What is Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) & how is it caused?

Shaken baby syndrome (SBS) is a traumatic brain injury that is said to be caused by the violent shaking of a child. Shaken baby syndrome may lead to permanent disorders or even death. While traditionally this has been associated with child abuse, there may be other causes which may cause a child to suffer from shaken baby syndrome. Shaken baby syndrome may be named as the cause of death when an infant or small child suffers a subdural hematoma or retinal hemorrhaging, but these conditions may also be caused by a long fall or even an auto accident. There may be an entirely innocent explanation for a child's injuries, but child protective services and law enforcement may be hesitant to believe anything that the parent, guardian or caregiver says. Due to zealous efforts to protect children from real abuse, an innocent parent may face serious child abuse charges.
