Paralysis Injury Lawyers
Paralysis dramatically affects one’s daily life due to a profound loss of muscle function as well as loss of sensory and motor skills, leaving an individual paralyzed. While paralysis can be transient or permanent, there’s no doubt that it is difficult to face. Paralysis can take several forms:
- Paraplegia (paralysis of the legs and lower body)
- Quadriplegia (also known as Tetraplegia, this includes paralysis of all four limbs)
- Injury-related paralysis (from a herniated disc, fracture of the vertebrae, spinal cord injury or from a pinched nerve)
While the most immediate consequence of paralysis is a victim’s inability to walk or run, an array of other effects may include limp muscles, loss of bladder control, low blood pressure, trouble breathing and overall decreased life expectancy. Aside from these debilitating effects, it is perhaps more tragic when the victim’s paralysis is a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another. If you or a loved one is in this predicament, you should contact the paralysis injury attorneys at Morris Law Firm.

Accidents Resulting in Paralysis
Individuals may develop paralysis for a number of reasons, with some related to medical conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease. Even so, paralysis may occur as a result of a serious accident or event such as the following:
- Vehicle Accidents
- Gunshot Injuries
- A Slip or Fall
- Workplace Injuries
- Errors During Surgery
- Diagnostic Errors
- Medical Malpractice

Did you know? Individuals that are paralyzed often need sophisticated modes of transportation, as well as physical therapy and rehabilitation. Their homes will need to be redesigned with special equipment and devices, allowing for accessibility. In cases where the patient’s breathing has been affected by paralysis, a ventilator may be necessary. Many of these changes and modifications will be needed for the rest of the individual’s life. Thus, to say that paralysis is a life-altering disability is an understatement.
