Los Angeles
Paralysis Attorney

Are you suffering paralysis after an injury?
Call The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani today!

Paralysis, the loss of motion and feeling in part of the body, is most often caused by car, motorcycle, and pedestrian accidents as well as workplace injuries. It is usually a result of spinal cord or traumatic brain injury and is typically permanent, and therefore life-changing. In some cases, function and mobility may return in a few months; if not the loss of movement or sensation will remain as nerve pathways or the spinal cord itself are too severely damaged.

Any victim of paralysis will experience loss of function and be unable to perform the tasks they once did. Our Los Angeles paralysis lawyer will fight for you to compensate for lost wages, medical damages, and pain and suffering.

Different Types of Paralysis

Paralysis can vary in severity and affect different parts of the body. The extent of the condition is usually correlated with how severe the injury is and where it’s located. Types of paralysis include:

  • Paraplegia: Affects the lower body, including both legs, the trunk, and pelvic organs, leaving one unable to walk and with no function from the waist down. Bladder and bowel function are usually affected as well.
  • Monoplegia: A certain part of the body is affected, such as one arm or one leg. Many patients regain feeling and movement in the rest of their body. Monoplegia can result from brain injuries or localized nerve damage.
  • Hemiplegia: One side of the body is paralyzed. A patient will not have movement in the arm and leg on that side. Although often associated with stroke, hemiplegia can result from a range of different types of personal injuries.
  • Quadriplegia: Also called tetraplegia, it involves complete paralysis from the neck down. A patient has no movement in their arms, legs, or trunk and their pelvic organs are also paralyzed. Quadriplegia typically occurs when the spinal cord is severed or damaged at the neck.

Living with Paralysis

A patient with paralysis can experience serious limitations in physical activity. There may be no sensation or a loss thereof, or one may face chronic pain or sensations such as stinging, tingling, or numbness. Depression is very common among paralysis victims, so a combination of physical and mental therapy is often provided.

Once affected by paralysis, an individual can expect long-term medical care and therapy. Modifications such as mobility aids, wheelchairs, and various other changes around the home can be expected, while special means of transportation may be required. Victims may face challenges in how family members, friends, and others perceive their injury and react to it. Their condition also leaves individuals at risk of pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and bedsores among other problems.
