Paralysis injuries can have a significant, long-term impact on a person’s life, family, and career. If you have been paralyzed as the result of a negligent entity’s actions, you have the right to pursue monetary compensation with the help of an experienced catastrophic injury attorney. A Cobb County paralysis injury lawyer could work with you to collect evidence, prepare a demand package, and hold the negligent party accountable.

What is a Paralysis Injury?

If someone is injured in an accident, a fall, or from physical violence, their spinal cord can become damaged, severing the connections between the brain and certain body parts and thus causing paralysis.

Paralysis is complete if the patient cannot move or control their muscles at all, as opposed to partial or incomplete paralysis, in which the patient still has some feeling or movement in some muscles. Paralysis can affect only certain areas, or it can be widespread. Paralysis can be either temporary or permanent.

No matter what type of paralysis an injured individual suffers, if it occurred due to the actions or inactions of another person or party, they may be owed compensation. A Cobb County paralysis injury attorney could build a strong case to help them receive that compensation.

Liability for Paralysis Injuries

When an accident occurs that causes paralysis, liability can sometimes be difficult to ascertain. There may be several parties whose actions contributed to the accident such as drivers, government entities, doctors, hospitals, product or part manufacturers, and even the plaintiff themselves. If one person or party owes a duty to the plaintiff but failed to uphold that duty, they could be liable for the damages that ensue, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and long-term care expenses
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of society
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of bodily functions

Can Plaintiffs be Liable?

If a jury determines that a plaintiff is liable for a portion of fault, they can still recover compensation for the portion for which they are not at fault. As per Georgia Code § 51-12-33(b), the plaintiff’s award will be reduced by their percentage of fault. If the jury determines that the plaintiff’s damages are worth $500,000, and the plaintiff is liable for 50 percent of their damages, they will receive an award totaling $250,000.

Multiple Defendant Liability

Under the same statute, when multiple defendants are liable for the plaintiff’s injuries, their compensation to the plaintiff will be divided accordingly. Each defendant is only required to pay the plaintiff compensation that is equal to their percentage of fault. A skilled paralysis injury lawyer in Cobb County could help ensure that every party who might have contributed to the plaintiff’s injuries are subpoenaed as defendants in the case.
