What is Paralysis?

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, they typically experience a drastic loss of strength in a limb or muscle group, which results in limited motion or mobility.

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

Recovering Damages After a Paralysis Injury

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.

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, and other expenses, you need to be financially prepared to face the future.

We accept cases in Kirkland, Bellevue, Seattle, Everett, and the Greater Washington State Area. Plus, we take out-of-state cases. Call (425) 657-5255 today for a free consultation, or email Rob at for a quick answer to your legal questions.
