Severe trauma to the brain or spinal cord (such as you would experience in a car accident) may result in partial or complete paralysis. In most of these accident cases, a paralysis attorney will be required because of the extraordinary cost of the medical treatment necessary to treat victims of paralysis.
The type of paralysis a person experiences will contribute to limiting the ability a person has to move and function independently. Some individuals will need the permanent assistance of another person and/or medical equipment such as:
- Specially equipped vehicles
- Feeding tubes
Handling this life altering condition is emotionally, financially and physically draining. Our paralysis attorneys are here to help fight for you, so all you have to worry about is healing.
