Atlanta Paralysis Injury Lawyer

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 partialor 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.

Living with the Cost of Paralysis


Although strokes and other medical conditions account for some instances of paralysis, accidents and traumatic injuries account for a large number of paralysis patients in the United States. Unfortunately, the cost of living with paralysis is monumental. The average medical expenses for a spinal cord injury can cost between $228,566 and $775,567 in the first year. Over the course of a lifetime, it can amount to millions. In addition to these costs, paralysis can result in missed wages and lost earning potential.

You may also spend considerable time recovering before your doctor allows you work again. Severe paralysis injuries may result in a lifetime of lost work potential. Besides these immediate concerns, paralysis often causes secondary medical conditions, such as spasticity, respiratory concerns, sexual health complications, skin conditions, and depression. Due to the catastrophic nature of these injuries, it is imperative that you have a skilled paralysis injury attorney in Atlanta handling your claim.
