Paralysis is most commonly caused by severe trauma to the spinal column, neck or back. Depending on the site and severity of the injury, paralysis can be complete or partial. Those who suffer paralysis could experience:
- Paraplegia (complete loss of function in two limbs)
- Quadriplegia (complete loss of function in all four limbs)
- Loss of motor control
- Loss of sensation
- Autonomic hyperreflexia
- Loss of control over bladder, bowel and sexual function
- Pressure sores
- Increased risk of injury to paralyzed areas
- Loss in muscle tone
- Pressure sores
- Deep vein thrombosis (blood clots)
- Chronic pain
While some patients may be able to recover some independence through use of a wheelchair or through occupational therapy, many will require continued assistance to perform even the most basic of tasks. Our firm seeks compensation for all our clients' needs, including initial medical expenses, anticipated future medical costs, living arrangement alterations and assistant care.
Our Seattle personal injury attorneys understand the life-altering impact paralysis can have on you and your family. That is why we work closely with medical experts and occupational specialists to build strong cases demanding full and fair compensation from liable parties. We prepare each case from the beginning as though it will go to trial, though we have often been able to obtain positive results on behalf of our clients through assertive negotiation. As a service to our clients, we offer a free initial consultation and case evaluation so they can determine how they wish to proceed.Contact Us
