Cerebral Palsy Due to Negligence

Cerebral palsy in infants is a disorder that causes a dysfunction in the cerebral cortex, preventing the infant from controlling its movements properly. Cerebral palsy affects approximately 10,000 babies each year, but in some cases the condition is acquired due to outside circumstances. These circumstances include but are not limited to:

  • Negligent birth procedures – incapable doctors can cause trauma to a baby during birth, resulting in cerebral palsy
  • Head or spinal cord injuries – these types of injuries have many causes, but car accidents are one of the more common causes

Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy

The severity of cerebral palsy varies from case to case, depending on the child’s stage of brain development when the damage occurs. When the injury occurs at birth, the symptoms typically begin to show by the time the child is 3 years old. Symptoms include:

  • Delayed speech and/or motor development
  • Trouble walking, controlling muscles, swallowing and eating
  • Tremors or spastic reflexes
  • Only wanting to use one side of the body
  • Excessive drooling
