Spinal Cord Injury Paralysis Attorney
Spinal cord injury or paralysis may be the most life-changing and devastating injury that a person can suffer in a car accident. One moment a person is able to function normally. Seconds later, he or she is unable to move various body parts for the rest of their lives.
While America is becoming increasingly accommodating to the needs of victims of paralysis, people with spinal cord injuries face challenges on a daily basis. This realization can be difficult to cope with for someone newly dealing with their injury.

Paraplegia: Paraplegics have usually suffered a spinal cord injury to their lower back. The damage to the spinal cord typically causes paralysis of the legs and lower torso. Paraplegics will usually need to use wheelchair for the rest of their lives.
Quadriplegia: Quadriplegics have usually suffered a spinal cord injury to their upper back or neck. While each injury is unique, many quadriplegics suffer paralysis to the torso and legs, but also may have little or no movement in their arms, hands or neck.
