Warning Signs of Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy Warning Signs cerebral palsy warning signs

For families expecting the arrival of a baby, the threat of birth injury is a terrifying prospect. Such injuries strike about 3 percent of all newborns, turning what should have been a happy moment into a medical emergency.

One of the more serious Michigan birth injuries is cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy impairs a young child’s ability to move normally and engage in activities of daily living that require coordination.

Cerebral palsy can occur during birth as a result of negligent doctors or medical professionals. The symptoms of cerebral palsy typically become apparent around 2 or 3 years of age and are permanent in nature. Cerebral palsy warning signs include:

  • delayed milestones
  • difficulty sitting up
  • difficulty moving around
  • difficulty with fine or gross motor skills
  • weak muscles or uncontrollable shaking or jerking
  • difficulty swallowing or sucking

If your child is exhibiting these symptoms, you should visit a doctor.

If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy – and you suspect that it is the result of medical malpractice – then you may be able to recover damages for:

  • medical bills
  • ongoing care
  • permanent damage
  • pain and suffering
