Florida Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer Explains Paralysis
Among all of the various potential effects of being involved in a serious accident, few consequences are more devastating than paralysis. Paralysis is a condition that results in immobility as a result of a back injury affecting the muscles and nerves in the spine.
Due to the anatomy of the spine, paralysis affects the muscles and nerves below the location of the injury. Thus, the higher on the spine the injury occurs, the greater the risk of full paralysis. This condition, known as quadriplegia (or tetraplegia), can affect the legs, arms, torso and neck, while paraplegia affects only the lower body.
In some cases, accident victims will experience complete paralysis, which results in total loss of motor and sensory function. In other cases, accident victims will experience incomplete paralysis, which results in some motor and sensory function being maintained. In addition to physical mobility and sensory inputs, paralysis can also result in:
- Inability to regulate blood pressure
- Respiratory dysfunction
- Sexual dysfunction
Our Personal Injury Lawyer Understands How Your Life Changes After a Spinal Cord Injury
Like other types of catastrophic injuries, a spinal cord injury can change your life in the blink of an eye. Even if you do not suffer the extreme consequences of paralysis, a spinal cord injury can still lead to physical limitations, substantial medical expenses, time missed from work, chronic pain, emotional trauma, and loss of enjoyment of life. In order to ensure that you are able to cope with these consequences effectively, you will need to hire a lawyer to seek just compensation on your behalf, and at Searcy Denney we are prepared to do whatever it takes to help you recover your losses.
