In this case we represented a father. Mother and father were accused of shaking their young baby. The baby had also sustained fractures and bruising which the parents were accused of being responsible for. The case was considered in the High Court. A number of medical experts were instructed including a Paediatrician, Paediatric Ophthalmologist, Paediatric Neuro-Surgeon, Paediatric Neuro-Radiologist and a Paediatric Radiologist. The medical experts were unanimous in their view that the injuries were Non Accidental in nature. Mother was found to have caused all of the injuries. It was accepted that father was not present during the time-frame in which the injuries could have been caused. Father was exonerated. The child was returned to the care of the father.
