Fortunately, most people who suffer injury in an accident make a full or substantial recovery. However, regrettably, there are those who are not so fortunate and endure permanent and life-changing symptoms. Some of the most serious injuries you could suffer are a form of paralysis. Such injuries tend to have not only an impact on the individual who suffered injury but their family, many of whom often provide care for the injured person. Suffering any form of paralysis is likely to affect your living space, capacity for work, social life and state of mind.
Types of paralysis
Paralysis can affect all or some of your limbs or just certain areas such as your foot or arm.
The following are commonly used terms:
Paralysis is usually caused as a result of a stroke, head injury or spinal cord injury. Such injuries are commonly caused in road traffic collisions and accidents at work, especially where the employee is working from height or working with dangerous machinery or equipment.
Our Solicitors have the technical knowledge but also the sensitivity to advise and represent individuals who have suffered serious injuries including those with paralysis.
We understand that the most important issue is arranging the best possible treatment and therapy available. This often means arranging treatment on a private basis. This treatment is often best identified by the instruction of a Case Manager who can assess and visit the injured person regularly to monitor progress and identify future therapies available. Such treatment will often require early interim payments from the at fault party which your Solicitor can advise you upon and obtain on your behalf.
