What You Need to Know About Paralysis Injuries

Paralysis generally is caused by a broken neck or damage to the spinal cord, which occurs through blunt force.

This type of injury can occur in all types of accidents, including:

Facial paralysis and nerve damage in the shoulder can occur to infants who have sustained birth injuries, resulting in such conditions as brachial plexus injury or Erb's palsy. For these children, loss of function of the affected limb may result in a permanent disability.

Depending on the severity and placement of the nerve damage to the spinal cord, paralysis may involve loss of function and feeling from the neck down (quadriplegia) or from the lower half of the body (paraplegia). Paralysis injuries can be partial or complete or can occur in one part of the body or on a larger scale. The most common cause of various types of paralysis consists of motor vehicle accidents in which the victim's spinal cord is damaged or broken. Ongoing medical care, including various therapies, may be needed as well as personal assistance in everyday life, resulting in staggering medical costs. When this situation has been caused by another party's carelessness, negligence, or even deliberate wrongdoing, a personal injury claim can be used to seek rightful compensation.
