Bridgewater Paralysis Injury Attorney Identifies Symptoms
Paralysis injuries are sadly not as well understood or easily treatable as many other conditions. This is partially because injuries to the central nervous system and particularly the spinal cord are extremely complex, and modern medicine is still working on effective treatments. Paralysis is most often the result of issues with nerve tissue, muscle tissue, and/or spinal cord damage. Symptoms can include:
- Inability to sense heat, cold, and physical sensations
- Tingling Sensation
- Loss of motor control
- Difficulty breathing
- Slurred speech, impaired cognitive ability, changes in behavior
It is important to understand the paralysis symptoms depend heavily on the severity, the affected body parts, and the underlying cause of the symptoms. For these and many other reasons, it is highly recommended that the injured party seek medical attention as soon as possible to receive diagnosis and necessary treatment.
Hillsborough Traumatic Injury Lawyer: Accidents Leading to Paralysis
While accidents of all kinds have the potential to cause serious injuries resulting in paralysis, there are certainly some accident types with a higher degree of risk. The following common types of accidents have the potential to cause trauma to the brain and/or spinal cord, leading to paralysis.
Motor Vehicle Accidents – car accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, and motorcycle accidents carry the biggest risk of spinal cord injury in the U.S. With the estimated number of annual motor vehicle crashes hovering around 6 million, it is easy to see why.
Falls – falls from heights and even simple slip and fall accidents are also amongst the most common culprits for paralysis. A large percentage of these accidents include individual who are injured on the job, particularly those in the construction industry.
Sports and recreational activities – recreational activities send approximately 3.2 million children between the ages of 5-14 to the emergency room each year. While these accidents do not carry a high rate of paralysis injury, the sheer numbers mean that there will still be cases of paralysis from sporting activities.
Special Considerations for Paralysis Claims in Somerset County
For all personal injury claims, our Somerset County attorney’s main objective will be recovering full and fair compensation for clients in order to pay for medical bills, pain and suffering, incidental expenses, lost wages and more. For clients suffering from paralysis, there are additional factors to weigh in when considering what is an acceptable and positive outcome to your personal injury claim.
Many individuals suffering from severe paralysis are permanently disabled. In other words, there is not a reasonable expectation that they will ever be able to return to work. Our legal team will fight to recover damages which will compensate for a lifetime of lost wages.
Additionally, life long complications from paralysis will often lead to ongoing medical expenses, rehabilitation services, medications, and even expenses from changing your residence to accommodate your disabilities. With these and all other personal injury matters surrounding such a serious injury, it is vital that you work with an experienced and qualified attorney. Not only does our law firm have the experience and knowledge of the legal system necessary to secure your family’s financial future, but we will take the time to understand your individual needs and concerns so that we can tailor our services accordingly.
