What Is Paralysis?

Paralysis is a medical condition characterized by the inability to move one or more muscles in the body. It can also involve a loss of feeling in the affected area.

Paralysis can occur due to various reasons, primarily involving issues with the nervous system. The severity and extent of paralysis can vary widely, from partial paralysis affecting a specific limb or region of the body to complete paralysis below the point of injury along the spine. Types of paralysis include:

  • Monoplegia – Affects only one limb or region.
  • Hemiplegia – Affects one side of the body, typically involving the arm and leg.
  • Paraplegia – Affects both legs and sometimes parts of the torso.
  • Quadriplegia (Tetraplegia) – Affects all four limbs and, in many cases, the torso.

The treatment for paralysis depends on its cause and severity. Unfortunately, while some cases of paralysis may be temporary and partially reversible, others may be permanent.

Treatment options may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, medication to manage symptoms, surgery, and assistive devices like wheelchairs or braces. Research into treatments like stem cell therapy, nerve cell regeneration, and innovative rehabilitation techniques continues to evolve, offering hope for future advancements in paralysis treatment.

Common Accidents That Lead to Paralysis

Some people are born with conditions that cause paralysis, such as spina bifida. Others develop paralysis due to medical conditions like multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and strokes.

Unfortunately, in many cases, paralysis is caused by traumatic injury to the spinal cord. Our seasoned legal team has the knowledge and resources needed to handle all personal injury scenarios that lead to paralysis, including those involving:

Compensation for Victims of Paralysis

Paralysis can significantly impact a person’s quality of life. If you’ve experienced paralysis, you may require ongoing and expensive medical treatment, assistive devices, and modifications to your home or vehicle to accommodate your condition. You may be unable to work and support yourself financially. Your injury may also affect your ability to enjoy activities you once loved.

If someone else’s carelessness caused your paralysis, you have the right to seek compensation for your resulting losses. With the help of our Virginia paralysis injury attorneys, a personal injury lawsuit may provide financial compensation for the economic and non-economic damages like:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and ongoing care
