Symptoms of Cerebral palsy
Cerebral palsy is a birth injury that affects many babies annually. It affects a baby’s nervous system or its brain and can cause all kinds of disorders and physical conditions, like paralysis. Depending on the severity of a child’s cerebral palsy, they may exhibit a number of symptoms of the disorder.
Unfortunately, many children suffer from the consequences of cerebral palsy due to a doctor or other medical professional’s negligence before, during, or after their birth. When a doctor or other practitioner is reckless or negligent in his or her duties and your baby has cerebral palsy as a result, you may be owed financial compensation for the expenses and losses this has caused.

Identifying Cerebral palsy
Many parents don’t know how to identify cerebral palsy, but there are symptoms that one can look for that might indicate this condition. Some of these symptoms include:
- Muscle weakness
- Non-development in muscles
- Irregular movements, especially on one side of the body
- Numbness / loss of movement
- Loss of coordination
These symptoms could suggest that your baby has cerebral palsy, and since your baby won’t be able to tell you that something is wrong, it’s important that you closely observe his or her movements if you suspect he or she has this disorder.
