Paralysis is an impairment or loss of voluntary movement in a body part. Trauma, such as a spinal cord injury, or disease is the most common cause of paralysis. Anyone who has been involved in a traumatic accident and is now disabled should contact an experienced catastrophic injury lawyer to handle their claim.

Because paralysis is a serious and even catastrophic medical problem that might have long-term physical, financial, social, and emotional ramifications for the rest of the victim’s life, it is critical to hire an attorney with expertise in personal injury claims.

Types Of Paralysis 

 

Paralysis is a serious problem that affects millions of people in the United States. Paralysis occurs when the spinal cord or brain is damaged as a result of injury or illness. Because nerves can no longer transmit and receive information, messages from the brain are blocked following an injury to the spinal cord. Complete or partial paralysis occurs as a result of this kind of damage.

The spinal cord does not have to be cut. A person can become paralyzed if the protective bone layer is crushed, bent, or stretched.

  • Complete Paralysis

    – A person who has been shot in the spine is unable to feel or move their paralyzed muscles. A person with full paralysis is entirely paralyzed, and they are unable to control their paralyzed muscles at all. They may not be able to feel anything in those muscles because of the injury.

  • Incomplete Paralysis

    – Partial or incomplete paralysis is defined as when a person continues to have sensation and some degree of control over their paralyzed muscles. On the spinal cord, below the accident site, the individual may still have some level of function.

Paralysis is a collection of problems that affect a variety of parts of the body. The following are some examples:

  • Monoplegia

    – only one arm or leg is affected

  • Hemiplegia

    – Affects one arm and one leg on the same side of the body

  • Paraplegia

    – affects both of your legs

  • Quadriplegia

    – Sometimes known as tetraplegia, is a form of paralysis in which both arms and legs are affected.

Common Causes Of Paralysis

 

Any loss of muscular function, whether partial or total, is considered paralysis. Paralysis is usually classified by which areas of the body are affected. When restricted to only one half of the body, it’s called paraplegia; when simultaneously affecting both legs and arms, it’s known as tetraplegia or quadriplegia.

The most prevalent reasons for paralysis include:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries

    The spinal cord is critical to movement since it serves as the main connection between the brain and muscles. Spinal cord damage due to a fall or other accident on an oil and gas rig, at a refinery, or during building may occur frequently.

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs):

     Damage to the brain can render it powerless to control muscular movement. It is prevalent among individuals who work in hazardous building or oil and gas occupations.

  • Negligence In The Workplace

    A supervisor’s failure to properly seal off a building site or a company’s failure to establish proper safety standards can result in an injury to a worker or bystander. Such carelessness may quickly lead to the occurrence of spinal cord injuries and TBIs.

A paralysis is a life-altering event that not only affects the person who has been struck but also their family. Worse yet, the loss of employment opportunities means lost income. We work tirelessly to achieve complete financial recovery so that you may have access to your present and future medical demands as well as those of your family.

Why Should You Seek Compensation For Paralysis?

 

If you or a loved one has been struck down by paralysis, you should seek compensation from the at-fault party. The loss of a salary is exacerbated by significant medical expenses and long-term care needs.

This is where you may be able to get compensated for the expenses of paralysis, allowing your family to care for you while still paying attention to essential expenditures. You are entitled to compensation for missed income and future earning capacity, medical costs incurred now and in the future, and other out-of-pocket expenditures connected with the accident.

The Financial Impact Of Paralysis

 

Unfortunately, the challenges of living with paralysis are not limited to the condition. Paralysis can sometimes cause other problems and illnesses in people who have it. Every year, about 30% of persons with paralysis are hospitalized at least once.

The lifetime expense of living with paralysis is difficult to quantify due to the wide-ranging effects of the accident. The cost estimates range from $1 million to around $5 million in lifetime expenditures. However, these numbers only consider healthcare and living expenses. They do not account for indirect expenditures such as missed income, efficiency, and other intangible benefits.

Living with A Paralytic Injury

 

In addition to the challenges that paralysis poses to the injured individual, their family and friends are likewise affected. It’s frequently the family members who take on the main caregiving responsibilities for quadriplegics and paraplegics. More than 50 million people provide such assistance on a daily basis, and the value of their labour is more than $300 billion each year. When hospice and nursing home care are taken into account, the number rises dramatically.

Adjusting to a severe disability is not only a physical but also a financial strain. It also comes with many practical and emotional difficulties. The following are some of the challenges faced while adapting to life with paralysis:

  • Retrofitting your vehicle
  • Retrofitting your home – toilets, showers, wheelchair access
  • Finding alternative transportation
  • Wheelchair mobility training
  • Physical therapy
  • Mental health therapy
  • Transportation and attending frequent doctors appointments
  • Arranging for help with childcare
  • Arranging for help will house cleaning
