Cerebral palsy is a condition marked by impaired coordination and other disabilities usually caused by damage to the brain before or at birth. Cerebral palsy is the most common childhood disability in the United States affecting about 3 out of every 1000 births.

The experienced and caring attorneys at Graves McLain can help you through a birth injury claim. While you focus on taking care of your child, we’ll focus on getting to the facts of your situation.
What is Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy is characterized as a group of disorders that affect muscle tone, movement, and posture. In many cases, this occurs due to damage to the immature brain - both before birth or during the birthing process.
Signs and symptoms of cerebral palsy will often begin to appear during infancy or during preschool. Cerebral palsy’s effect on overall function can vary greatly and may be accompanied by intellectual disabilities, epilepsy, blindness, or deafness.
Symptoms of Cerebral palsy include:
- Exaggerated reflexes
- Floppy or Rigid limbs
- Involuntary Motions
Long-term treatments including physical therapy, medications, and, at times, surgery are available for patients. These forms of treatment can become costly. That’s why it is important to have an experienced birth injury lawyer by your side to help you get the compensation needed.
