Spinal Cord Injury Quick Reference:


Our superb and charismatic trial lawyers want to help you make your life whole again. But nearly 1 in 50 people suffer and live with paralysis, meaning approximately 5.4 million people have been afflicted with some form of spine injury-related immobility. Be that skilled attorneys are not always available to get you paid the maximum allowed under the law as it may.

Paraplegia And Paralysis Injuries

Yes. Paraplegia paralyzes your torso’s lower portion waist down, whereas quadriplegia, or tetraplegia, involves paralysis from the neck down, typically from spinal cord damage.

What Causes Paralysis?

Car accidents remain among the primary causes of paraplegia, including a motorcycle crash or pedestrian run-over while walking down a sidewalk. Automobile accidents also cause most orthopedic problems, including severe spinal cord injuries.

But other things can cause this affliction like:

  • Defective machines
  • Weak warnings
  • Poorly made products are all suspect.

These Product liability accident claims may force strict liability on the defendant or hold the careless defendant liable under ordinary negligence principles.

Causes of paralyzation Include:

  • Car accidents
  • Work injuries
  • Poorly maintained premises
  • Infections
  • Pool diving in the shallow end accident
  • Plane crashes
  • Medical or dental malpractice

Total Paralysis Or Only Partial?

Paraplegia causes victims to suffer partial paralysis, often accompanied by loss of feeling and leg function, paired with terrible pain and stinging sensations.

Distinction Between Quadriplegia Injuries?

With quadriplegia injuries, discussed here, the victim will be totally  immobilized from the neck down.

Typically the culprit is:

  • Pinched nerves
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Burn injuries are the culprit
  • Loss of bladder, bowel control, and spasms

Even worse, it can severely inhibit:

Often it causes shorter lifespans. All of these are actionable in court and require an attorney that can guide you through the process.


What About Medical Care Issues?

Severe medical problems can go well beyond the present.

For Example:

  • Future medical care, including hospital bills, pain drugs, motor transport, wheelchairs, and physical therapy.

When you or a loved one faces paraplegia due to another person’s negligence or carelessness, only the finest in legal representation will do.

What Are Some Other Issues Faced In A Paraplegia Case?

What do the Statistics Show?

  • Cars cause about half (46.9%) of all spinal cord injuries.
  • In many of these cases, the other driver is at fault.

Third parties are also potentially liable, including for errors such as:

  • Defective tires
  • Seatbelts and steering columns.

What About Liability For Your Defective Seatbelts?

Defective seatbelts could include lap belts that don’t include shoulder harnesses. Also, this could cause the victim’s midsection to experience a great force, causing spine injuries.

Hence, this could be one of the leading causes of paraplegia. Wearing a lap belt-only restraint has become primarily phased out as the leading cause of modern back problems from wrecks. (Source.) But this statistical change did not occur until a government mandate in 2007.  So many older model cars still hold this type of belt.
