Paralysis Injury Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

What is Paralysis?

Paralysis generally results from spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries, and while it is often caused by physical trauma sustained in an accident, it can also be caused by errors made by doctors, surgeons, and other medical professionals. Similarly, when certain disease processes are not timely recognized and addressed, or if traumatic injuries to the spinal cord are not appropriately treated, paralysis may ensure.

There are varying degrees of paralysis. Paraplegia limits or prevents movements in the leg and lower back area, and quadriplegia can result in loss of movement from the neck down, including the arms. Other minor forms of partial paralysis can also occur, leaving one side paralyzed or with limited mobility in certain limbs. Whatever the extent of the paralysis, the necessary personal care can be extensive and costly.
