Paralysis And Spinal Cord Injury
Victims of spinal cord injuries usually suffer a degree of paralysis. This may range from numbness, tingling or weakness of the affected limbs to complete loss of sensation and movement below the area of injury. Paraplegia affects the lower limbs and body. Quadriplegia affects both the lower and upper body, including all four limbs.
If you have suffered a spinal cord injury due to the negligence of another party, you are entitled to compensation to help you meet the significant challenges you will face. That includes:
- Past and future medical care
- Loss of earning capacity
- Home modifications
- Adaptive devices such as wheelchairs and special vans
- Personal assistance
- Future medical procedures
Our lawyers work with life care planners to help us anticipate and document all expenses you are likely to face during your lifetime due to your injury. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the full compensation you are owed from the negligent party and his or her insurance company.
While spinal cord damage is currently considered to be irreversible, many researchers believe that new treatments will one day help spinal cord injury victims recover some movement and sensation by promoting nerve cell regeneration.
