Have you suffered from paralysis thanks to a negligent act caused by an
employer or car accident? Operating errors, improperly administered anesthesia
and other medical malpractice issues can also cause paralysis that can
take time to recover from. Even temporary paralysis can be a major hindrance.
When it happens to you, your life comes to a standstill; you can’t
go back to work, you suffer through hours of rehabilitation with few results,
and you may feel mentally drained.
Paralysis is often a life-altering and life-long condition. It’s
caused by trauma to the brain or spinal cord, and it affects a person’s
ability to control physical movement. In many instances, things like financial
difficulties, emotional stress, and pain and suffering need to be addressed
through a civil lawsuit.
As a patient, you were probably aware that paralysis could happen to you
during surgery. You signed paperwork that agreed that you knew there were
dangers involved. Did you really know how serious your injuries could
be, though? If your physician didn’t discuss them with you or took
an unnecessary risk during your procedure, then you are in a difficult
position. Fortunately, you may be able to get the compensation you need
for further medical tests, to pay bills and to get your life as normal
To learn more about paralysis and how you can seek compensation after medical
malpractice leaves you unable to return to your former life, please read
over our webpage on injury claims. Don’t let those who hurt you
get away with this; they should have to pay for your pain and suffering
and to help you live a more comfortable life with your injury.
