The Causes of Paralysis
There are many different types of accidents that can lead to paralysis.
- Motor vehicle accidents: Auto accidents are one of the leading causes of paralysis. Our attorneys are equipped to handle all types of motor vehicle accidents, including truck, car, bus, and motorcycle crashes.
- Aviation accidents: Plane accident cases can be very complicated. There are a number of parties who may be held liable. At Moody Law, we will investigate all circumstances of your case to ensure that you receive full compensation.
- Product liability: Faulty equipment and vehicles can cause serious injuries. Our team can determine whether improper design, poor manufacturing, or inadequate instructions were to blame for your accident. Then we can help you bring negligent parties to justice.
- Medical malpractice: Tragically, doctors can make serious errors that injure your spinal cord or do not recognize existing damage and risk. Our team handles many types of malpractice cases. We can also work with medical expert witnesses for the strongest case possible.
The Overwhelming Consequences of Paralysis
Paralysis is often the result of a spinal cord injury. Your spine contains bundles of nerves that trigger movement in the rest of your body. When these nerves are damaged, your body will no longer receive those signals. Often, paralysis will affect the lower half of the body (paraplegia). In other cases, you could lose movement both in your arms and in your legs as well (quadriplegia).
Along with reduced movement, other effects of paralysis can include:
- Loss of bowel and bladder control
- Exaggerated reflexes
- Skin issues
- Changes in sexual function and sensitivity
- Loss of fertility (usually in men only)
- Chronic pain or an intense stinging sensation
In addition to the physical effects of paralysis, a catastrophic injury will turn your life upside down. Your ability to work may be compromised, and you will no longer be able to engage in the activities you love. Like many victims, you may suffer from depression. Paralysis can also affect your loved ones, particularly if you are no longer able to provide for your dependents. In some cases, you could even require around-the-clock care.
