Cerebral Palsy Symptoms
Symptoms of cerebral palsy vary, depending on the severity of the brain injury. The primary effect of cerebral palsy, however, is impairment of muscle tone, gross and fine motor functions, balance, control, reflexes and posture. A child with cerebral palsy may have a difficult time swallowing or speaking.
Associated conditions such as seizures, sensory impairment and learning disability are not technically symptoms of cerebral palsy, but occur frequently with cerebral palsy. If your child has had any of these symptoms, please visit your pediatrician immediately and contact the attorneys at G. Eric Nielson and Associates. We have a panel of experts who can evaluate your case and tell you if your child’s injury was a result of medical negligence.
