Suffering paralysis following an accident can lead to substantial life changes that are difficult for an individual and their family to endure. Along with these life changes may come substantial medical and rehabilitation costs, reduced or lost ability to work, and emotional hardships.

Fortunately, you do not need to go through this challenging time alone. A Gainesville paralysis injury lawyer could help review your options for financial recovery if you were left paralyzed after an accident. Additionally, an experienced catastrophic injury attorney could appraise your case and help you understand your legal options.

How do Paralysis Injuries Occur?

Most paralysis injuries stem from damage to the spinal cord, which prevents the brain from transmitting messages to other parts of the body effectively. As a result, part of the body may become immobilized.

Quadriplegia is the most severe type of paralysis, whereby a person cannot move from the neck down. Paraplegia allows movement of the upper body and torso but causes leg immobilization. Other types of paralysis are localized to specific parts of the body. An individual may be left paralyzed as a result of a:

Depending on the cause of a paralysis injury, an individual may be able to bring a claim for damages against the at-fault party. A dedicated lawyer in Gainesville lawyer could assess a paralysis injury case and determine who may be liable in court.

Damages Available in Paralysis Injury Lawsuits

Because the nature and degree of these injuries tend to be severe, individuals may be able to pursue extensive damages. Some of the out-of-pocket expenses a claimant could seek may include:

  • Lost wages to date
  • Future lost earning capacity or inability to work
  • Medical expenses to date
  • Future medical costs including rehabilitative treatments and adaptive living modifications to household

In addition to the physical effects of paralysis, a person may experience several accompanying psychological issues. A person who loses mobility in any part of their body may deal with grief and emotional trauma.

A paralyzed person could seek damages for their physical pain and mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, and other consequent psychological harm such as anxiety and depression. The law recognizes that there is a large degree of subjectivity in determining what amount is appropriate to compensate an injured claimant.

Usually, a civilian jury weighs the evidence presented in each case. In these situations, it can be particularly useful to retain a Gainesville paralysis injury attorney who could create a strategic case that showcases the effects of a claimant’s injuries accurately.
