Paralysis and How It Affects Victims
Tragically, victims can become partially or fully paralyzed as a result of another person’s negligence during a motor vehicle accident, slip and fall accident, construction accident, or medical malpractice. When the spinal cord is crushed or severed in an accident, victims may experience reduced sensation, mobility, and function in part or all of the body.
While some victims are able to restore mobility with therapy and surgical treatment, others are permanently afflicted by paralysis. The victims in these accidents suffer from extremely limited mobility, making the most basic tasks highly difficult. It is often difficult to move around and carry out tasks that were once easy. As a result, paralysis can have lasting detrimental effects on the victim's emotional state.
Suffering an injury that leads to paralysis can be overwhelming and stressful. However, a skilled personal injury attorney can help you cope by fighting for damages on your behalf.
Many paralysis victims also develop subsequent health problems such as cardiovascular disease, blood clots, pneumonia, chronic pain, muscle weakness, and gastrointestinal issues that severely affect the victim's well-being and quality of life.
The Importance of Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney
Suffering a spinal cord injury that leads to paralysis can be overwhelming and stressful. However, a skilled personal injury attorney can help you cope by fighting for compensation on your behalf.

As a result of the attorney's work, you could receive compensation to cover:
- Current and future medical bills
