Georgia Car Accident Lawyers at Montlick & Associates, Review Important Information to Help Parents and Caregivers Prevent Shaken Baby Syndrome

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Shaken Baby Syndrome, or SBS, is the leading cause of child abuse deaths in the United States. There are steps that can be taken in order to safely calm a crying baby and cope with a, sometimes, frustrating situation. To help educate parents and caregivers about the dangers of shaking a baby, the Georgia Car Accident Lawyers at Montlick & Associates created the video posted at the top of this page.

Victims of Shaken Baby Syndrome suffer serious health consequences. According to the CDC, at least one of every four violently-shaken babies will die from this form of child abuse. "Our goal is to raise public awareness of the problem, and to help educate parents and caregivers on how to protect families from these heart-wrenching tragedies,” says Montlick & Associates CEO and Founder, David Montlick.

Shaken Baby Syndrome is a form of abusive head trauma resulting from forcefully shaking an infant or toddler. Babies cry a lot and it can be frustrating and overwhelming at times. It’s important for a parent or caregiver to stay calm, check for the baby’s physical needs and try soothing the baby. If necessary, it’s okay to call a friend or family member for help. Prevention saves lives! Helping people understand the dangers of violently shaking a baby, the risk factors and triggers, may help to reduce the number of children impacted by SBS. That’s why the Georgia Car Accident Lawyers at Montlick & Associates strongly advise that parents educate themselves, and those around your baby, about Shaken Baby Syndrome.
