Babies Born Addicted to Drugs Need an NAS Lawsuit Attorney

Tennessee has some of the highest rates in the country of children born addicted to drugs.

Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) is a group of symptoms that occurs in babies born addicted to drugs. Infants exposed to addictive opioids while in the womb become addicted just like their mother. Babies born with NAS experience devastating withdrawal in the first fragile days and weeks of their young lives.

These initial symptoms may include blotchy skin, refusing to feed, shaking, or trembling. Even worse, some babies with NAS experience seizures, vomiting, sweating, and other symptoms of withdrawal that are common among drug users.

Children born with NAS may also experience serious symptoms later in life, including developmental delays, psychiatric illness, seizures, and other serious disabilities. These can range from hearing loss to physical impairments and respiratory complications.

What is even more devastating is how badly the opioid crisis and number of babies born addicted to drugs has affected our home state. In fact, some counties in Tennessee have reported rates of  NAS births that were eight times the national average. Some hospitals have even opened new wards in order to care for the increased number of infants born with NAS.
