HELPING BAY AREA RESIDENTS RECOVER COMPENSATION FOR PARALYSIS INJURIES

Paralysis results as a direct complication of a spinal cord injury or neurologic injury. A paralysis can cause emotional, physical and financial devastation and suffering for both victims and their families. Common types include:

  • Paraplegia — a paralysis that affects the lower extremities, including the torso and legs. Paraplegia is a complete loss of sensation to the lower limbs. Paraparesis is a partial loss of sensation to the lower limbs. It is caused by damage to the spinal cord usually in the lumbar spine area.
  • Quadriplegia — a paralysis that affects the torso and all four limbs is caused by spinal cord injury to the cervical spine.
  • Facial paralysis — a paralysis that causes paralysis in some or all of the facial muscles due to damaged or severed nerves from an injury.
  • Partial paralysis — a paralysis that affects the movement of a muscle group to a varying degree but not completely. This is called paresis.

RECOVERING COMPENSATION FOR FINANCIAL BURDENS AND MEDICAL NEEDS

At The Law Office of Scott Righthand, P.C., our attorneys know the health complications associated with a paralysis injury. The inability to move can lead to skin breakdown, bowel and bladder difficulties, infection, contractures and much more.

It is also financially detrimental. The cost of medical care for a paralyzed patient is extraordinary and involves numerous medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, a lifetime of nursing assistance, alterations to homes, cars, and lifestyles. Adult victims will be forced to adjust their work situations or be put out of work and on disability permanently. Children will spend their lives learning to adjust themselves to the complications of paralysis.
