Catastrophic Injuries

Paralysis Attorney in Nashville

Were You Seriously Injured By Someone Else’s Actions?

The most severe spinal cord injuries can lead to paralysis, which can force a family to change the way they live in order to accommodate their injured loved one. Losing the ability to move around without assistance forces the paralyzed victim to chance the way they can interact with the world. Whether your injuries resulted in the loss of only part of your body, or if it resulted in complete paralysis, you deserve the chance to seek compensation if your injuries were caused by the negligent or wrongful actions of another person or device.

Understanding the Impact of Paraplegia & Quadriplegia

Paralysis is typically categorized as complete or incomplete. Incomplete paralysis refers to the fact that individuals can still retain some fine motor control and sensation, while someone suffering from complete paralysis has lost all feeling and movement in the affected regions.

  • Paraplegia: An accident or illness that damages the lower regions of the spinal cord can cause paraplegia—which refers to paralysis of the legs and lower body.
  • Quadriplegia: A more serious type of paralysis, quadriplegia includes both the upper and lower portions of the body. Damage to the upper region of the spinal cord can cause paralysis in both the arms and legs. Individuals who suffer from quadriplegia might also have difficulty breathing and may require the use of a ventilator.

Depending on the severity of your injuries, paralyzed victims may require 24/7 care in order to perform even the most basic of tasks. In many cases, you will need to alter your mode of transportation in order to accommodate any wheelchair or other devices you need to move around outside of your home – add in the cost of rehab and any medical bills that accumulated during your initial treatment and you may begin to feel overwhelmed about your financial responsibilities. However, if your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligent or wrongful actions, you may be able to file a lawsuit in order to secure the compensation you need to cover those bills and any other damages you may have incurred.
