Spinal Cord Paralysis Lawyer
Paralysis is the loss of muscle function in part of a victim’s body. A spinal cord injury can damage or destroy the conduit that transmits the brain’s messages to the body.

The loss of one’s own mobility and independence is a terribly traumatic event. Making matters worse, spinal cord injury victims often require extensive rehabilitative care and suffer various medical complications, even shortened life spans. The effects of paralysis or spinal cord injury can include pain, urinary and bowel tract problems, respiratory problems, and sexual dysfunction.
Personal, emotional and psychological effects are often associated with a spinal cord injury as well. These can include weight control issues, alcohol or drug abuse, major depression and a very high risk of suicide in the first 10 years following an accident.
According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistics Center, the average medical cost of a spinal cord injury is more than $200,000 (as high as $600,000 for victims suffering from full quadriplegia). Treatment and rehabilitation costs for subsequent years range from $14,000 to $120,000 depending on the severity of the injury.
Most paralyses caused by nervous system damage are constant in nature; however, there are forms of periodic paralysis which are caused by other factors.
