Paralysis

Are You Suffering from Paralysis?

Seek compensation with The Dunnion Law Firm!

Paralysis is the inability to move or use certain body parts. There is a loss of muscle function, usually immediately after an injury, consisting of damage to the nervous brain system, especially the spinal cord. An injury tears or compresses nerves that can cause paralysis. Spinal cord injuries account for approximately 23% of people with paralysis, 4% from traumatic brain injury, 2% from birth defects, and 7% from cerebral palsy.

In the United States, some 1,275,000 people reported paralysis from a spinal cord injury. If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident resulting in paralysis, it is important that you contact a California personal injury attorney at The Dunnion Law Firm for legal advice concerning the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Are you in need of a paralysis injury attorney?

In a condition of paralysis, a person experiences a loss of feeling either localized (in one small area of the body) or general (over a large area of the body). Such cases involve more than the original injury that resulted in the paralysis. A secondary condition follows, involving such things as:

  • Bladder management or bowel care
  • Depression and pain
  • Respiratory health
  • Sexual health
  • Uncontrolled spasms

Birth accidents, horseback riding, car crashes, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents are common causes of paralysis. Therapy treatment for paralysis is an expensive and long-term rehabilitation process. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you may be able to sue for damages in the form of lost wages and future earnings, medical expenses incurred and continued medical care costs, loss of companionship, and consortium.

Dealing with an incident of paralysis can be very trying on family members. For this reason, our lawyers at The Dunnion Law Firm are dedicated to dealing with the legal aspects of an accident. We care about the suffering paralysis victims and family members endure.
