What Are Paralysis Injuries?

Paralysis may have the following symptoms:

  • Loss of sensation in the body.
  • Restricted movement.
  • Muscle spasms.
  • Loss of bladder control.

The body part affected defines the type of paralysis injury a victim has suffered.

  • Quadriplegia Injuries: This injury type affects all four limbs and pelvic organs. They can further be grouped into complete or incomplete quadriplegia.

  • Paraplegia Injuries: Paralysis from such injuries affects only the lower body such as the legs, trunk, and pelvic regions. The victim can move their upper extremities in this case.

  • Hemiplegia Injuries: These injuries cause paralysis that affects one-half of the body instead of the upper or lower extremities. It is more common in victims that developed stroke prior.

Our Los Angeles office is available to help you with medical experts to help you assess your situation. Call us if you develop any of these injuries from automobile accidents.

How to Categorize Spinal Cord Injuries?

Spinal cord injuries represent nearly 27% of all paralysis cases. The level of sensation a person maintains after an injury to the spine defines the kind of paralysis they have:

  • Complete Paralysis: This is when the victim loses all feelings below the point of the spinal injury.
  • Incomplete or Partial Paralysis: In this case, the victim still has some sensation or motor function below the point of the injury.

About half of all spinal cord injuries in the United States affect people between 16 and 40 years of age, spending an average of 11 days in intensive care. Men make up most of the new cases.

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injury

Not every spinal cord injury qualifies as an accident injury. Though some may be due to non-accidental situations, a chunk of them in the U.S are from accidents and violent attacks. These can have devastating consequences on victims.

Below are some of the causes of spinal injuries:

  • Car accidents
  • Falls
  • Medical malpractice
  • Work accident
  • Sports
  • Assault
  • Gunshot.

It is difficult living with the consequence of catastrophic injuries like being paralyzed from the waist down. The sadness after the loss of enjoyment of life, suffering tingling sensations, and being forced to take powerful pain medication, can create severe depression.

These qualify as personal injury cases, and you can get support for your medical bills and physical therapy if you get an injury lawyer with proper training and skills. Contact Ehline Law if any of the above has led to you developing a paraplegia injury.

You will talk to an experienced Los Angeles paralysis attorney from our law firm who will guide you through the legal process to get the compensation and back pay you deserve from the insurance company or a judge.

Living with Paraplegia Injury

The medical costs that come with living with a paraplegia injury are expensive. Restricted movement can also lead to the victim developing secondary conditions such as chronic pain, urinary tract infections, loss of bowel control, nerve damage, blood clots in limbs, etc. This assumes that the person didn’t also suffer a brain injury in their accident.

Since there is no cure for paraplegia, many patients have to live with the condition for the rest of their life. Lost wages, alongside present and future medical care, can be overwhelming. This is particularly unfair if the personal injuries are due to the negligent actions of a third party.

Our law firm is prepared to provide a paraplegia injury lawyer to help you or your loved one get financial compensation for this life-changing situation. We have attained fair settlement in many paraplegic cases. The Ehline Law office maintains a zero fee guarantee for clients that come for free consultations.

Making a Solid Liability Case

If you feel a loved one’s paralysis or loss of mobility is due to a person’s negligence or suffering a loss from a car accident, contact our personal injury attorneys to help you fight for your trauma case.

Preserving the Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations for a severe injury can differ depending on the plaintiff and the defendant. If your paraplegia was caused by medical malpractice, the patient has one year from the discovery of their bodily injury. (Or three years after being injured to sue.) This varies from the normal statute of limitations. Children and underaged minors, including the mentally ill, or physically incapacitated people have a longer period to bring a claim. Also, who the defendant is, (government only allows you six months to file a claim against their agency, etc.) and the defendant’s location will make a difference in the statute deadline to sue.

We are the right firm to help you assess economic and non-economic damages like pain and suffering and emotional depression claims. Our lawyers can help you get compensated for the pain if you are in Los Angeles, CA, or anywhere in Southern California. If we can’t get a large insurance settlement, our team has no qualms about bringing a lawsuit on your behalf to recover maximum compensation till we achieve financial success.
