A paralysis-causing injury is a traumatic one and very often requires long, sometimes lifelong medical care. A compensation case for paralysis and spinal cord injuries should be handled by attorneys who know how to gather and present evidence that may include testimonies by various medical experts about the nature of the injury and its future implications.
An injury to the spinal cord can result in the person losing use of appendages and other body parts. Paralysis is broadly categorized as paraplegia, which affects the legs and sometimes the trunk and quadriplegia, which results from neck injuries and leads to paralysis of the limbs. Treatment for paralysis may involve neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, therapists, nurses, dermatologists, and psychologists. Paralytics have to deal with physical injuries and emotional scars.
Treatment costs for paralysis are substantial. Other costs include the costs of refurnishing the house and making changes to accommodate the paralytic, loss of income, loss of consortium, pain, and emotional suffering.
