What Causes Paralysis?
Paralysis injuries are most common in:
- Serious car crashes caused by a negligent driver or defective part
- Slip and falls, resulting from a negligent or careless property owner
- Construction accidents, in which the construction company is liable for injuries to pedestrians and workers
- Medical malpractice such as surgical errors that damage the spine
Partial or full paralysis can result when the spinal cord sustains damage in an accident. The parts of the body below the point of injury may lose some or all mobility and sensation. Nerve damage can also cause paralysis in certain parts of the body.
Long-Term Challenges of Living with a Paralysis Injury
Although advancements in surgical treatments and other therapies have helped to restore mobility for some victims, many must deal with the challenges of paralysis for the rest of their lives. Victims living with paralysis have limited mobility, which can affect their ability to walk or perform basic tasks like brushing their teeth.
Paralysis victims generally require extensive medical treatments and rehabilitation. These injuries can also make it difficult for victims to secure gainful employment. These can lead to financial hardships for victims and their families. In addition, depression can occur in much higher rates among victims of paralysis.
