Atlanta Paralysis Injury Attorney
Compensation for Partial & Complete Paralysis
Paralysis is caused by nerve damage, which prevents messages from the brain
from being relayed to the rest of the body. The spinal column is a nerve
bundle which transmits messages from the brain to all areas of the body,
including vital organs. A spinal cord injury may leave the victim with
numbness, chronic pain, or a degree of nerve damage which results in partial
or complete paralysis.
Paralysis is generally accompanied by other medical complications, and
in many cases, the victim's life expectancy may be shortened as a
result. This is a traumatic experience which has a profound effect on
the victim's quality of life. If you have suffered this type of catastrophic
injury, you need an
Atlanta personal injury lawyer who is committed to pursuing the money that you deserve and need.

of paralysis, accidents and traumatic injuries account for a large number
