Get Legal Help for Paralysis After a Serious Accident

If you've suffered a catastrophic injury that resulted in paralysis, your life will never be the same again. You may be bitter and angry about your disabilities, or frustrated about how your paralysis will affect your family and your ability to provide for them. There is no question that Phoenix families suffer emotionally and financially when they have a loved one paralyzed because of an accident or act of violence.

It's important to understand that if you've suffered catastrophic injuries that led to paralysis as a result of someone else's negligence or wrongdoing, you have legal rights. The at-fault parties in such cases can be held financially responsible for the injuries, damages, and long-term consequences victims and their families face.

Understanding Paralysis

When the brain or spinal cord suffers severe trauma, a person can be paralyzed. Paralysis can happen as the result of a car accident, bike accident, sporting accident, pedestrian collision, slip-and-fall accident, or even a birth injury. The nature and extent of injuries depends on the location of the trauma.

If the spinal cord is damaged near the neck, it could result in quadriplegia, paralysis from the chest and neck down. If the spinal cord is damaged lower in the back, it could result in paraplegia, paralysis from the waist down.

The Cost of Living with Paralysis

The financial and emotional cost of living with paralysis can be staggering. Patients often need initial hospital and nursing home care. They are also likely to need extensive rehabilitation and long-term care. Victims and their families are looking at ongoing medical care, physical and occupational therapy, vocational retraining, and counseling. Some victims of paralysis also need a handicap accessible van, a personal care attendant, adaptive services, and significant modifications to their homes to make them accessible. All these costs can add up to millions of dollars over a person's lifetime.

Protecting Your Rights in Phoenix

To get fair compensation, plaintiffs must prove that someone else's negligence contributed to their injuries.

For example, if you were injured in a car accident, you will have to show that the at-fault driver was speeding, fatigued, drunk, or otherwise negligent. If you suffered an injury in a slip-and-fall accident, you may have to show that the property owner contributed to the accident by failing to provide reasonably safe conditions. If your child suffers paralysis because of mistakes made during labor, you may be able to hold the hospital and/or medical professional liable for their negligence.

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain or spinal cord injury that resulted in paralysis, keep records of your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses that have added up because of the injury. Write a daily journal documenting your struggles, and research your legal options.
