What is Cerebral Palsy and How Will it Affect My Child?

Cerebral Palsy is defined as a group of disorders that affect movement, balance, posture, and muscle tone. It is a neurological condition that stems from damage to the brain at or before birth.

There are multiple types of cerebral palsy. The most common type is spastic cerebral palsy which is characterized by stiff muscles that cause jerky, repeated movements. Cerebral palsy can affect one side of the body, two parts of the body (such as both arms or both legs), or the whole body.

There are a host of symptoms a child with cerebral palsy might experience. The symptoms depend on the type of cerebral palsy and the regions of the body that it affects.

In general, symptoms include:

  • Balance and coordination problems 
  • Difficulty walking
  • Involuntary movements 
  • Speech problems such as difficulty speaking or delays in speech development
  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing or sucking
  • Developmental delays
  • Learning difficulty
  • Intellectual disability
  • Delayed physical growth 

Cerebral Palsy Diagnosis Presents New Financial Challenges to Your Life

A cerebral palsy diagnosis means that you and your child face a variety of challenges every day for things that once seemed simple and even exciting. Feeding your baby, playing games, teaching your child how to brush their teeth or tie their shoes, or learning your favorite childhood song all become much more difficult.

With these challenges come medical expenses, special needs accommodations at home, additional care services and supplies, and the need for learning and developmental specialists and extra time at home. Having the financial resources to offset these challenges and newly essential expenses can make a world of difference to your and your child’s stability as well as your mental and physical health. 

Recover Compensation To Offset the Costs of Caring for a Child With Cerebral Palsy

A Germantown cerebral palsy lawyer at our firm can help you file a claim for damages to recover the money you need and deserve.

In a personal injury case involving birth injuries you are entitled to collect economic damages to cover things like:

  • Pending and future medical bills for your child’s care
  • Travel expenses 
  • Essential daily care expenses 
  • Time off from work 
  • Reduced earning potential 
  • Assistive technology and equipment 
  • Rehabilitative care or physical therapy
  • Essential services for your child
  • Cognitive, psychological, or learning specialist 

Non-Economic Damages Can Increase Your Compensation

Additionally, the law enables you to recover compensation in the form of non-economic damages. These damages usually account for the bulk of your financial award.

You can potentially recover money for pain and suffering for either yourself or your child in a personal injury lawsuit which includes:

  • Emotional distress
  • Psychological or cognitive disorders
  • Physical impairment 
  • Depression
  • Loss of enjoyment of activities 
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Loss of services
  • Other pain and suffering
