Since nerve tissue does not regenerate as quickly as some other types of tissues, or sometimes not at all, any damage done to parts of the nervous system can be life-altering. Paralysis can result, causing a victim to be unable to move parts of his or her body. Unfortunately, this can result in many accommodations needing to be made, the inability to go back to your same job, and other changes that are physically and emotionally draining.

Our attorneys and staff work hard on behalf of clients whose lives have been changed by a spinal cord injury resulting in paralysis. We handle cases where paralysis stemmed from:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Construction accidents
- Nursing home negligence and elder abuse
Severity of Paralysis
The severity and extent of the paralysis following a spinal cord injury depends on the location of the injury on the spinal cord; the higher the injury to the cord, the more severe the paralysis. Any damage or severing of the cervical spinal cord (in the neck) may cause death. Whether you or a loved one has sustained wide-spread paralysis (quadriplegia) or a loved one has died as the result of spinal cord injuries, our firm can help you pursue compensation for the losses you have suffered.
