Paralysis is a permanent, catastrophic injury that can change the trajectory of your future in an instant. Paralysis is a spinal cord injury that is generally caused by an immense impact to the back, shoulder, or neck, and traffic accidents, slip and falls, pool accidents, and accidents on the job are often the cause. If you’ve suffered a paralysis injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, consult with an experienced Los Angeles personal injury attorney today.REQUEST A FREE CONSULTATION
Paralysis Further Defined
The Mayo Clinic shares that paralysis injuries can be either complete or incomplete. Consider the following:
Further, paralysis can take one of the following two forms:
The loss of sensation and loss of control over one’s bodily movement is often physically, financially, and emotionally devastating and can be excruciatingly difficult to learn to live with. Most people who suffer from paralysis injuries have a long physical and emotional path toward healing ahead.
Secondary Health Concerns
Losing movement in one’s body is an overwhelming consequence to suffer, but paralysis is also very closely related to life-threatening secondary health concerns, including the following:
Control of One’s Bladder
Although paralysis doesn’t curtail one’s bladder from storing urine, the brain will no longer receive messages from the damaged spinal cord. Because the spinal cord is the message center that sends messages from the brain to the body, this damage often leads to issues with bladder control. This lack of control is closely associated with chronic urinary tract infections and can cause kidney infections and bladder stones. Rehabilitation services can teach you new techniques for emptying your bladder according to a schedule and for helping to preserve your overall health.
Control of One’s Bowels
While paralysis will likely leave your stomach and intestines working about the same way that they always have, you’ll need to learn how to regulate your bowels and optimize their functioning for the sake of your health and comfortable daily living.
Control of One’s Circulation
Circulatory problems go hand and hand with paralysis, and this can lead to swelling of your extremities and the risk of developing life-threatening blood clots, including a pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis. Paralysis can also lead to a potentially deadly rise in blood pressure, which should be closely monitored.
A Lifetime of Care
If you’ve been paralyzed as a result of someone else’s negligence, you are facing a lifetime of healthcare needs, a lifetime of potentially diminished earnings (if you’re able to work at all), and serious emotional setbacks to come. In other words, your damages can be astronomical and will likely include:
