Few paralysis injuries are caused by "accidents." Most of these tragic injuries are caused by careless or risky behaviors. For example, many people sustain severe accident injuries in a wrong-way crash caused by a drunk driver. When these tragic circumstances arise, obtaining monetary compensation for past and future medical expenses is essential to assure your and your family's financial future.
How Do Paralysis Injuries Occur?
The spinal cord is made up of a cylindrical bundle of nerves that begin at the brain stem and continue down the spinal column to the pelvic bone. These nerve fibers connect the brain with the entire body and are crucial for activity and movement. The spinal cord also makes it possible for the body to interact with the environment through sensations such as touch and smell.
If the spinal cord is severed, the brain cannot send and receive signals to the affected body parts. The sensations from the affected body parts cannot travel up to the brain. This condition is commonly referred to as paralysis. Generally speaking, the location of the spinal cord injury dictates which body parts will be affected. For example, a lower back spinal injury will affect the body parts from the lower back and lower. If the spinal cord is injured in the neck, then the injury victim might not be able to their arms and legs.
The Top Causes of Paralysis Injuries
Since the spinal column protects the spinal cord, minor accidents generally cause spinal cord injuries. It usually takes a substantial amount of force to cause paralysis. Paralysis is usually caused in:
Falls: When someone falls off of a ladder or falls down stairs, that person can sustain paralyzing injuries. For this reason, construction companies are required to provide fall-restraint devices for their workers. The following accidents make up the majority of paralysis injuries.
Car Accidents: Car accident trauma can permanently damage a person's spinal cord.
Birth Injuries: Newborn babies are vulnerable to serious injury before, during, and after birth. During childbirth, the baby could sustain a spinal cord injury if the obstetrician misuses a medical device or uses too much force during the delivery process.
Intentional Injuries: Intentional infliction of injuries can result in permanent, paralyzing spinal cord injuries. Such incidents may include gunshot wounds and striking a person in the back with a weapon. The at-fault party can face punitive damages when a spinal injury is inflicted intentionally.
Spinal cord injuries that lead to paralysis may cost victims and their families tens of thousands or more in medical bills, prescription medications, home healthcare assistance costs, lost wages, future earnings, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and other accident-related losses. Even when it is clear that a person caused these injuries and losses through their reckless actions, obtaining the economic compensation you need may not be guaranteed. If you or a loved one is injured, call an experienced Paralysis Attorney in Georgia to fight for your legal rights.
