Spinal Cord Injury, paralysis
Connecticut Paralysis and Spinal Cord Lawyers – Kocian Law Group
With a spinal cord injury, walking, sitting, standing and many other daily tasks become complicated. Extreme pain or even paralysis can prevent you from enjoying your life as you did before the injury. If you have suffered spine damage or paralysis as the result of someone else’s negligence, call Kocian Law Group.
The spine is the center of the body. Any damage done to it can have permanent, life changing effects.
Common causes of spinal cord injuries include:
- motor vehicle accidents
- heavy lifting
- slips and falls
- work injuries, especially for those in construction or other physical-labor-intensive fields
- surgical malpractice
Spinal cord injuries can lead to paralysis. Paraplegia and quadriplegia are the two types of paralysis. With paraplegia, a person cannot move the lower portion of the body, while with quadriplegia a person cannot move any of their limbs. Lack of feeling in the afflicted portions of the body marks both forms of paralysis.
Treatment for spinal cord injuries involves physical therapy, rehabilitation, and sometimes surgery. Treatment may last for the rest of a patient’s life and impose hefty costs. If you have been injured through no fault of your own, you are entitled to just compensation.
