What It's Like To Be Injured

Paralysis & Quadriplegia Lawyer

Representing Injured Clients in Seattle, Kirkland, Bellevue, Everett, & the Greater Washington State Area

If you or someone you love was involved in a major accident, you might be concerned about the resulting injuries, especially if there is a risk of paralysis. Paralysis can have a lasting impact on a person’s life, especially because this condition is often irreversible or, at best, long lasting. Paralysis occurs when the nerve cells that run from the spinal cord to the corresponding muscles are damaged, resulting in an ineffective communication between that part of the body and the brain. When someone becomes paralyzed, he or she typically experiences a drastic loss of strength in a limb or muscle group, which results in limited motion or mobility.

Recovering Damages After an Accident

Injuries involving any type of paralysis are extremely serious in nature, and should be dealt with swiftly. After you’ve sought medical attention, you need to get in contact with an experienced attorney to discuss your legal options after an accident. Paralysis injuries can be expensive, painful, and they may cause severe emotional distress. If you were harmed due to someone else’s negligence or mistake, you have every right to hold the liable party responsible for the damage they caused.

The main forms of paralysis include:

  • Paraplegia – legs are partially or completely paralyzed
  • Quadriplegia – both legs and arms are paralyzed
  • Monoplegia – one limb is paralyzed
  • Diplegia – the same region of the body is paralyzed on both sides
  • Hemiplegia – one side of the body is paralyzed

Legal Representation You Can Rely On

Paralysis injuries can happen anytime, anywhere, but are more common in automobile accidents, sports accidents, falls, and medical malpractice cases, to name a few. Paralysis may be a short or long-term result of any back, neck, or head injury, and the severity may vary on a case-by-case basis. If the damage is permanent, the cost of ongoing care can be outrageous. Between current medical costs, physical and occupational therapy, future surgeries, ongoing medication, specialist appointments, and other expenses, you need to be financially prepared to face the future. Don’t face your paralysis injury alone; Attorney Rob Kornfeld can provide you with the zealous legal advocacy you need and deserve.
