“An injury to any of the seven (7) cervical vertebra above the first thoracic vertebrae that results not only in loss of feeling and function of the arms and legs, it can also cause severe pain, loss of bladder control, bowel control, muscle spasm, sexual dysfunction, loss of fertility, as well as shortened lifespan.”

Victims must not handle their case alone; they must first get an excellent lawyer who helps people like you get money for paralysis from the neck down types.
A loving family member at the side of the people with paralysis will be a great resource. Wives, husbands, parents, and children remain vital to recovery, yet dealing with tremendous stress, making things far worse when losing your primary breadwinner. Your ability to pay bills and live the same way as before can become unsustainable. Disabled victims are often left destitute, facing homelessness, discrimination, suffer from depression, and PTSD.

In contrast, paraplegia will typically immobilize your legs only, allow the use of one or both hands. (Learn more here).

A person with quadriplegia remained stranded on a Disneyland ride in one case. In another case, a poor girl was disabled after a car crash.
