The Rights Of Full And Permanent Paralysis Victims
Experienced Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers Fight For Quadriplegics And Victims Of Paralysis
A major accident can cause debilitating spinal cord injuries that produce full and permanent paralysis. If you suffer a severe spinal injury, such as a broken neck, you may be paralyzed for the rest of your life. You or your loved one may have to learn to start your life over with new limitations – you might even need a wheelchair for the rest of your life. Many people who become paralyzed begin their recovery with a feeling of complete helplessness. We want you to know help is available.
The catastrophic injury lawyers at the Ohio law firm of Crandall & Pera Law help accident victims who suffer from full or permanent paralysis. We have assisted numerous families from our multiples offices in Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chagrin Falls and Chesterland in obtaining the compensation they deserve to manage this new lifestyle, make the physical and emotional adjustments they need, and have the finances to cover their medical situation.
Types Of Permanent Paralysis
Many types of full paralysis are caused by a spinal cord injury. When that bundle of nerves that runs up and down your spine gets injured, it interrupts the signal between your body and your brain. You lose sensation and the ability to move your body. Complications include heart disorders and respiratory infections. If equipment such as oxygen machinery fails, the person can suffer permanent brain damage. People with full or permanent paralysis often must rely on others for help doing normal daily tasks such as eating, bathing, and dressing.
There are four basic types of paralysis:
- One limb is paralyzed.
- Both the arm and leg on the same side of the body are paralyzed.
- Both legs are paralyzed, or the pelvis and lower body are paralyzed.
- This medical condition is also called quadriplegia. It is where both the legs and arms are paralyzed.
At Crandall & Pera Law, our Ohio personal injury lawyers help catastrophic injury victims make the best transition into a lifestyle they can, hopefully, manage. We work relentlessly to hold defendants accountable for their negligence or reckless disregard for the safety of others.
Accidental Causes Of Full Or Permanent Paralysis
Permanent paralysis is usually caused in one of the following ways:
- Motor vehicle accidents, such as car accidents, motorcycles crashes, and truck collisions
- Sports injuries, such as football injuries
- Violent physical assaults
- Medical malpractice
- Construction accidents
Many times there is no specific treatment. Some patients receive steroid injections for spinal cord injuries. This treatment can reduce inflammation when done correctly. Crandall & Pera Law attorneys have extensive experience representing spinal cord injury victims and can help you obtain the funds needed to receive proper treatment.
