My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: tennessee.
my 10 months old daughter was pulling up on her walker in the dining room and it rolled out from under her causing her to hit her head on thr floor which is linoleum over pure concrete. she was perfectly fine after being held and loved on after falling. about 4-6 hours later we noticed a knot on the side of her head and immediately rushed her to the E.R.
they said there was a fracture and hemitoma(probably misspelled) to the side of the head with the knot. they brought in the abuse doctor to speak to me and her father seperately about everything then cps stepped in saying the abuse doctor said there was no possible way a fall could do that, that she was abused and told us we had to leave the hospital that we couldn't be there with her anymore. we now are battling to get our daughter back, cps place her in custody saying there was an unknown perpetrator in the home. we now have to go 6 months to a year without our little girl when bo one did anything to her, dcs has NOT investigated anyone in the home of the child except me and her father, they have not looked at the area where she fell, NOTHING!
is there something we can do, this can't be right. we have researched a lot about this and came across things about the abuse doctor who concluded that this was abuse and she has made false accusations before and tried ti bribe the parent with hush money when he tried to sue her and when he wouldn't take it she fled the state.
please we need help, we are now almost at a month without seeing our daughter. she is our life, everything we have ever done was for her, our life revolves around her someone please help!
