There are different degrees and types of paralysis injuries, but all forms have the potential to substantially impact a person’s life and result in a variety of symptoms. Paralysis can affect any body part, partially or completely. Partial paralysis allows for the control of some muscles, whereas complete paralysis results in the inability to control any muscles. The various forms of paralysis include:
- Diplegia: When paralysis affects the same area on both sides of the body.
- Hemiplegia: When paralysis affects one side of the body.
- Paraplegia: When paralysis affects the torso and both legs.
- Monoplegia: When paralysis affects one limb.
- Quadriplegia: When paralysis affects all of the limbs. Those affected may have little to no movement from the neck down.
Other symptoms of paralysis include tingling or numbness in limbs, loss of feeling and muscle control, and muscle cramps. In addition to these symptoms, paralyzed individuals may also experience the following complications:
- Blood clots
- Urinary incontinence or the loss of bowel control
- Difficulty breathing
- Increased risk of pneumonia
- High blood pressure
Even the most minor nerve injury could impact a person’s physical, mental, and emotional health. Adapting to bodily changes often takes time and, in many cases, assistance. Depending on the severity of the injury, one may learn how to manage life at home by adjusting their routines. Severe paralysis injuries can influence relationships and family roles, which can be stressful for everyone involved. Paralysis can also cause the following symptoms:
- Decrease in or total loss of sexual function
- Loss of fertility
- Mood changes
Paralysis injuries are considered catastrophic because of their potential to permanently alter a person’s life. An experienced Gillette paralysis lawyer will help you pursue the compensation you need to cope with your injury. Compensation could cover the following:
- Medical expenses, including treatment necessary to stabilize your condition, assistive devices, and any other ongoing care you may need.
- Lost earnings, as well as a dollar value given to lost earning capacity if you are unable to return to work.
- The cost of reasonable replacement services, such as help you may need with housekeeping and meal preparation.
- Pain and suffering you may experience as a result of your injury.
