Paraplegia Accident Injuries

Paraplegia is a form of paralysis that involves the loss of control of your legs or your body below your waist. It differs from quadriplegia, which is a form of paralysis that involves all four limbs and the torso. These injuries are caused by trauma to the spinal cord at or below the thoracic—or middle—level of the back, and they often affect your ability to walk or stand. Paraplegia can be the result of a car crash, fall, physical altercation, or workplace accident. In fact, 68% of all spinal injuries in the U.S. are caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents, or falls.

Other side effects can include loss of ability to:

  • control bowels or bladder,
  • function sexually,
  • normalize body temperature,
  • regulate blood pressure,
  • and more.

Our paraplegia injury lawyers understand the physical and financial burden caused by your injuries, and we’re here to protect your legal rights after your accident. Nothing can truly restore your life to the way it was before your accident or make up for what you’ve gone through since it occurred. However, financial compensation can at least help cover the costs necessary to help you live with your injury, so if you or a loved one have become paralyzed due to another person’s or party’s negligence, speak with us. We want you to get the best possible results.

Can Paraplegia Be Cured?

Paraplegia may be temporary, and if the spinal nerves were simply bruised or stretched rather than severed, physical therapy may help spinal cord injury victims regain some functionality. However, in many cases the paralysis is permanent and victims will require a lifetime of expensive treatment for which they deserve to be compensated by the at-fault party.

Why You Need a Paraplegia Lawyer

Unlike other types of injuries, it can be extremely difficult to calculate damages for permanent injuries like partial paralysis. Medical treatment will likely be needed for years after, if not for the rest of the paraplegia victim’s life, and the emotional distress and reduced quality of life are significant.

To ensure that you or your loved one receive what they are owed after their injury, speak to an experience paraplegia injury lawyer before accepting an offer from the insurance company. Once you accept an offer, it may not be possible to get more money later, even if the initial settlement falls far short of what you need after your injury.

    Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
