Paralysis Caused by Accidents

Fact: The leading cause of paralysis in the United States is spinal cord injuries.

Spinal cord injuries are often a result of car accidents, truck accidents, slip and falls accidents and medical malpractice.

Paralysis accidents have a profound and life-altering impact on the victims, forever changing their physical abilities and independence. The loss of mobility and sensory function can require significant adjustments and accessibility changes, from daily activities to emotional well-being, shaping a new reality that demands resilience and adaptation.

At Litner + Deganian, we recognize the life-changing impact paralysis accidents have on victims. With our compassionate support, we guide clients through the legal process, ensuring access to essential resources and fighting to secure fair compensation for medical care, rehabilitation, and a brighter future.

After being involved in an accident, it’s crucial to take the following steps:

  • Seek immediate medical attention: Your health and well-being should be the top priority. Make sure to receive proper medical care and follow the advice of healthcare professionals specializing in paralysis cases. Ongoing medical treatment, such as physical therapy, will likely be a factor for the rest of your life.
  • Document and gather medical records: Keep a comprehensive record of all medical evaluations, diagnoses, treatments, and prescriptions. These records will be valuable in assessing the extent of your condition and supporting your legal case.
  • Reach out to a personal injury lawyer: Schedule a consultation with a reputable paralysis lawyer experienced in handling paralysis cases. They can provide expert advice, evaluate the circumstances of your accident, and guide you through the legal process.
  • Discuss your legal options: During your free consultation, the personal injury lawyer will assess the details of your case, including the cause of your paralysis. They will explain your rights, potential legal claims, and the compensation you may be entitled to pursue.
  • Begin the legal process: If you decide to move forward with legal action, your personal injury attorney will guide you through the necessary steps, such as gathering evidence, filing a personal injury lawsuit if applicable, negotiating with insurance companies, and representing your interests in court if required. They will work diligently to secure a fair settlement or verdict to help you obtain the compensation needed for medical bills, rehabilitation, ongoing care, and other related costs.
