Common Causes of Paralysis
Approximately 10,000 people become victims of paralysis each year. Caused by an injury to the spinal cord, many cases of paralysis are preventable and result from accidents caused by another’s negligence, recklessness or intentional harm. While there are many incidents that may lead to paralysis, some of the most common causes include:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slips and falls
- Sports-related injuries
- Construction injuries
- Workplace accidents
According to statistics, motor vehicle accidents are the number one cause of paralysis, accounting for more than 40 percent of paralysis injuries each year. Falls account for nearly 20 percent of paralysis injuries, and violence and sporting events are the two other major causes of paralysis.
Types of Paralysis
There are different types of paralysis, depending on where the injury to spinal cord occurs, including:
- Paraplegia (damage to the torso and lower part of the body)
- Quadriplegia (damage to the torso, arms and legs)
Paralysis victims may also lose feeling in certain parts of their bodies and/or control of their bodily emissions. Regardless of the type of paralysis, or even the cause, discovering you or your loved one has been paralyzed is a devastating event. At the Killino Firm, we understand that when paralysis occurs, a person’s life will never be the same.
In addition to the immediate costs including medical and hospital bills, there are life-long costs including treatment and care. At the Killino Firm, we fight aggressively to assure that victims of paralysis receive the compensation they need to cover, not only their financial losses, but also their physical and emotional losses as well.
