Paralysis and Paraplegia
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.
