Partial / Permanent Paralysis
Experienced Personal Injury Attorneys Help Clients with Partial Permanent Paralysis
Strong advocates for the rights of the permanently injured in Kentucky
Partial paralysis results in the partial loss of function in parts of the body, which may improve over time or it may become permanent. An individual with partial paralysis will have some movement or function, but may also have limited sensation in the affected part. When partial paralysis becomes permanent it can have a devastating impact on the person’s ability to live their life in the way that they used to. It may force the individual to find a different line of work, or keep them from being able to work depending on the degree of injury.
At Crandall & Pera Law, we know that when you have been injured because of someone else’s negligence or an act of medical malpractice, you will have many questions about how you might get compensation for your injuries and your losses. Our legal team puts our proven experience to work on behalf of victims of spinal cord injuries throughout Kentucky every day – and we want to help you, too.
Causes of partial paralysis
Partial paralysis is often caused by nerve damage to the spinal cord. Sometimes the damage is caused in an auto accident or a workplace accident; other times it might be the result of medical negligence. Some of the more common causes of never damage leading to partial paralysis include:
- Trauma (from a blow of a fall)
- Brain tumor
- Multiple sclerosis
- Cerebral palsy
- Medical error from epidural injections
Consequences of partial paralysis
Partial paralysis after an injury can have a lasting impact in the life of the injured person. There will likely be tremendous, ongoing medical expenses and changes in the individual’s ability to work, which could mean diminished earning capacity. Their quality of life will be drastically altered, which can lead to depression and psychological implications. Mobility issues could leave a person unable to do all of the things that used to come naturally. All of these factors will have an emotional toll on the injured person and their loved ones. Fortunately, our civil justice system provides a recourse for those who have been injured by no fault of their own to seek justice from the responsible party in the form of compensation for their injuries and losses.
