Paralysis is when you lose muscle function in an area of your body. The severity of this loss can be complete loss of muscle control to temporary and/or sporadic paralysis. Paralysis can be caused when you injury your spinal cord as a consequence of an accident or injury.
The nervous system goes through your spinal cord, so paralysis may occur after injuring your spinal cord. This can cause loss of movement and feeling of your arms, legs and other parts of your body.
Paralysis can cause your life to change in a moment and require assistance to learn how to manage your life in to the future. This can cause emotional suffering for everyone affected by such a severe injury. If you or a loved one has suffered paralysis due to a spinal cord injury because of the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to damages under the law.
