Paralysis and Paraplegia

by | Mar 6, 2014 | Firm News, Medical Malpractice |


A life altering condition, paralysis is caused by trauma to the brain or
spinal cord. When paralysis occurs, not only does it remove a person’s
ability to control their physical movement, it affects every single aspect
of their life, causing financial difficulty, emotional stress, loss of
enjoyment, and pain and suffering among others. When paraplegia or quadriplegia,
monoplegia, diplegia or hemiplegia disabilities occur as a result of a
medical negligence, the injured individual is entitled to receive compensation
for their suffering and assistance with their future needs.

In a medical context, paralysis can be inadvertently caused by operating
errors during back surgery, mishandling medical instruments during surgery
for scoliosis or other spinal conditions, inexperienced physicians, improperly
administered anesthesia or medication, and others. In general, patients
should be made aware of the risks involving surgery near the spine with
the understanding that the procedure should improve their quality of life.
When a physician does not explain the risk fully, or takes an unneeded
risk without fully explaining the patient’s options, negligence
may have contributed to the paralysis.
