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.
