Cerebral Palsy Symptoms

If you’re concerned your baby has symptoms of cerebral palsy that may have resulted from a birth injury, you deserve answers. Cerebral palsy has a range of symptoms which can necessitate lifelong medical care. Although cerebral palsy is often due to a congenital abnormality, it can also be acquired as a result of brain damage due to medical malpractice.

Don’t wait to talk to a birth injury lawyer at our office. Call us today at 800-392-4529, or fill out an online case evaluation form here.


Cerebral palsy is a common disease. According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is the most common childhood motor disability, affecting more than 4 per 1,000 live births. Symptoms are different for every individual, and severity can range from mild mobility impairment to quadriplegia (paralysis from the neck down), as well as intellectual disabilities.

Symptoms of cerebral palsy vary greatly, but may include:

  • Stiff muscles and exaggerated reflexes (spasticity)
  • Lack of muscle coordination (ataxia)
  • Intellectual disabilities, especially from brain damage
  • Blindness or deafness
  • Developmental delays, such as sitting up or crawling
  • Difficulty walking, odd gaits, toe walking, scissor walking, limping, and so on
  • Paralysis, either paraplegia or quadriplegia
  • Problems swallowing, including drooling
  • Impaired fine motor skills, such as picking up a pencil or a spoon
  • Seizure disorders
  • Abnormal pain perception
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Involuntary muscle movements
  • Unusual muscle tone, either too tight or too floppy

If your child is displaying some of these symptoms, it will be crucial to receive a medical diagnosis from a pediatrician or pediatric neurologist, as infants will greatly benefit from early intervention.

Whether your child has cerebral palsy or another birth injury, Pribanic & Pribanic, LLC can help you seek justice. We will carefully review your case to determine the root cause of your baby’s medical condition, and establish whether medical negligence caused it. We can also provide you with resources for coping with cerebral palsy.
