During the process of delivering a baby, if the doctors or nurses or hospital do not follow the standard procedures as defined, the child may suffer from a brain injury which can result in cerebral palsy. This negligence from the hospital or medical practitioners can destroy a child’s life and limit his/her ability to function independently for their whole life. Not to forget the high medical and after care expenses associated with cerebral palsy.
Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy
The symptoms of cerebral palsy in a child depend on the degree of brain injury and on which part of the brain it has affected. Some children suffer from shaking limbs, they may have trouble in controlling their body movements and may also suffer from vision or hearing problems. Some other common symptoms of cerebral palsy are having problems in eating, swallowing and at times speaking. The symptoms can be present only on one side of the body or on only one limb. If you notice there is a huge delay in attaining some of the common developmental milestones like rolling backwards or reaching out to grab objects or sitting or standing, these could be warning symptoms of cerebral palsy.
Monetary Repercussions of Cerebral Palsy
If your child is suffering from cerebral palsy, he or she might not be able to lead an independent life, they will require a lot of assistance and care all through their life. Costs of medical and assistance care will keep mounting up and financially strain the family. Statistics say that the average lifetime care costs for a cerebral palsy patient is around $921,000.
Some children are highly independent even after suffering from cerebral palsy while many will require significant care in the day to day chores of their life. The needs and costs for each person is different. The impact of the birth injury also varies from patient to patient.
