A paralysis injury could result in physical and mental suffering. Following a paralysis injury, a victim could be facing lost wages, medical expenses, and the inability to perform day-to-day tasks.

The physical, emotional, and financial issues that arise following a serious neck or back injury can be overwhelming. If you now live with paralysis following an accident, a practiced catastrophic injury attorney might be able to help. An Augusta paralysis injury lawyer could help you seek damages from the negligent party responsible for your injuries.

Understanding the Types of Paralysis

Paralysis is the inability to move a body part, typically due to an injury to the spinal cord. A victim may lose mobility in the body parts below the injury as it cuts off communication with the brain.

There are two classifications of paralysis: localized and generalized. Localized paralysis is immobility in one area or body part, such as someone’s vocal cords or feet. Generalized paralysis is more commonly known and is the paralysis of a group of body parts. Spastic paralysis occurs when muscles are stiff and tend to tighten, a common symptom of cerebral palsy. On the other hand, flaccid paralysis occurs when muscles sag and shrink. Other types of generalized paralysis include:

  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Hemiplegia
  • Diplegia
  • Monoplegia

There are other factors that could impact the variations between paralysis injuries, such as the duration of the paralysis. Some paralysis injuries last a lifetime, while others are temporary.

Damages in Paralysis Injury Claims in Augusta

An Augusta attorney could assist people living with paralysis in seeking economic and non-economic damages in court. Economic damages provide plaintiffs with compensation for monetary losses that they incurred as a result of their injuries. These losses might include out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages, and medical bills. Non-economic damages provide compensation for emotional losses such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life caused by the injury.

If a plaintiff is seeking damages is partially at fault for causing their own injuries, it could impact the amount of damages they receive. The legal doctrine of comparative fault states that if a plaintiff is partly at responsible for their accident, their total compensation will be reduced by their percentage of fault. In some cases, they could be barred from recovering damages entirely.

Georgia follows the 50 percent bar standard, an extension of the modified comparative fault rule. According to the rule, plaintiffs are barred from recovering damages if the court finds that they were 50 percent at fault or greater. An injury victim may recover damages at a reduced amount if they are less than 50 percent responsible.
