The personal injury lawyers at Day & Nance represent people who have suffered paralysis injuries as a result of the negligence of others. Paralysis is the loss of muscle function. Paralysis can be accompanied with the loss of sensory feeling as well as motor function. A recent study suggests that 1 in 50 people have suffered from some kind of paralysis. The most common cause of paralysis is damage to the nervous systems, especially the spinal cord. Paralysis of the lower half of the body is called paraplegia while paralysis of the arms and legs is referred to as quadriplegia.
Spinal cord injuries usually begin with a blow that fractures or dislocates vertebrae, the bone that makes up the spine. Most injuries do not sever the spine. However, damage is often caused when pieces of vertebrae tear into the cord tissue or press down on the nerve parts that carry signals. In a complete spinal cord injury, the cord cannot relay message below the injury site.
Spinal cord injuries can be extremely debilitating and traumatic.
