Paralysis

Fewer injuries have as many accident ramifications as paralysis. Victims lose control of muscle function in one or more parts of their bodies. This injury can involve temporary or permanent muscle damage resulting in partial or complete loss of muscle function in a localized or generalized area of a person’s body. Classifications of paralysis include:

  • Monoplegia — Single limb, body part, or group of muscles
  • Hemiplegia — Arm and leg on one side of the body
  • Paraplegia — Legs and the lower half of body
  • Quadriplegia or Tetraplegia — All four limbs or the entire body below the neck

These types of injuries have an impact on essentially every aspect of the lives of victims. People usually cannot return to their current jobs and are unable to work in any capacity, they amass staggering medical bills, and many can require full-time assistance for everyday needs.

Paralysis can be the result of several different kinds of accidents, such as auto accidents, workplace injuries, or incidents involving premises liability. In such instances, it is possible that the victim sustained his or her injury because of another party’s negligence and the party at fault would then be liable to the victim for damages he or she suffered.

While the injured person could be able to file a lawsuit, the insurance company representing the negligent party will attempt to limit any financial compensation the victim receives. Insurance adjusters will attempt to get injured people to accept settlements that usually fail to be enough to help with a victim’s future needs, and lawyers for the insurance company will investigate for any way possible to diminish or deny liability.
