Know The Signs Of Cerebral Palsy At Birth

Perhaps you have just given birth to a child and you are concerned that something might be wrong. It is important to seek an opinion of a medical professional you trust, and it is also important to talk with an experienced lawyer right away.At Yonke Law LLC in Kansas City, Missouri, we can help protect your rights during this time. We handle all types of birth injury and medical malpractice claims, and we have more than 20 years of experience serving clients in this area. Our lawyers know how to recognize the symptoms of cerebral palsy, and we can help you through every step of your legal claim to make sure you get the compensation your family deserves.Some possible signs of cerebral palsy at birth can include:

  • Lifelessness: Most children are very lively at birth, crying and making a lot of noise due to the challenging experience of birth. If your child is quiet or inactive right away, it might be a sign of cerebral palsy or another birth injury.
  • Color: In some cases, a child will have a slight bluish or other unusual tint to the skin at birth, and this can be a sign of cerebral palsy.
  • Poor muscle control or spasms: Of course, newborn babies do not have very good muscle control, but if your child’s movements are particularly spastic or unusual, it could be a sign of a developmental problem.

These are not the only signs of possible cerebral palsy or other birth problems, and not every case of cerebral palsy is a direct result of medical malpractice. If you think there is any possibility that your child suffered cerebral palsy at birth, talk with our lawyers. We can do the research and make a sound determination. If it is a case of medical malpractice, we will fight aggressively to get you the full compensation award available under the law.
