When a traumatic event, such as a car accident or sports accident, damages the spinal cord, the result can be life-altering. Depending on the site of impact, spinal cord injuries can cause paraplegia, paralysis from the waist down, or quadriplegia, paralysis from the chest and neck down.
Causes of Paralysis - Personal Injury Attorney
The emotional and financial costs of living with a spinal cord injury can be staggering. People with spinal cord injuries will initially need hospital and nursing home care. They typically require ongoing medical care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, vocational retraining and psychological counseling. They may need adaptive services, a handicap accessible van, a personal care attendant and modifications to their homes to make them accessible. An experienced legal team can help people with spinal cord injuries obtain the money they need to go on.
