Along with a loss of muscle function, someone who becomes paralyzed may have to endure any number of different psychological problems ranging from depression to post-traumatic stress disorder. Additionally, a paralysis injury may have a detrimental effect on the injured person’s family as they may have to take care of or financially support them for the rest of their lives.

A Monument paralysis injury lawyer could help you and your life if you were left paralyzed following an accident caused by the reckless actions of another person. Hiring a dedicated attorney is an important first step to obtaining damages and moving forward after your injury.

What are the Different Types of Paralysis?

No two paralysis injuries are the same. The severity of the injury and the impact it has on one individual can vary drastically from another person’s experience. In a Monument paralysis injury case, an attorney could work to convey how the severity of their condition has impacted the claimant’s life.

Monoplegia

Monoplegia only affects one part of the body, such as a leg or arm. Although commonly caused by cerebral palsy, it also can be caused by a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as well.

Hemiplegia

Hemiplegia leads to immobility strictly on one side of the body. This form of paralysis also is most commonly associated with cerebral palsy but may occur as a result of TBI.

Paraplegia

Paraplegia occurs when someone loses their ability to control their limbs and organs below the waist. Damage to the upper or middle part of the spine typically causes this condition of immobility.

Quadriplegia

Quadriplegia is the most extensive form of paralysis and involves the loss of feeling and motor skills below the neck. Someone with quadriplegia generally must use rehabilitative equipment or mobility aids to perform daily tasks. Additionally, this person may need at-home medical care, which could become costly.

Shared Fault in Paralysis Injury Cases

An important legal concept that comes into play in some paralysis injury lawsuits is called comparative fault. Colorado Revised Statute §13-21-111 imposes a bar on damages for personal injury plaintiffs who are 50 percent or more to blame. This law allows a partially liable plaintiff to recover damages but in an amount reduced by their percentage of fault.

Comparative fault could potentially play a role in these cases in a variety of ways. For instance, if the plaintiff was partially to blame for the car accident that caused them to become paralyzed, this could impact their compensatory award. A Monument attorney could explain how comparative fault may affect an individual’s paralysis injury case and the compensation they may obtain.

“Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.”

I was uneasy about reaching out to a law firm after being in an accident that left me injured and my vehicle totaled. I don’t care for the idea of suing for what was very clearly an accident. However, after learning more about the overall process of working with a professional team to navigate the murky waters of the insurance world, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the experience wasn’t as gross as I’d originally felt about it. Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.

I never have a problem with getting a response when I need them – which is not the case with most other firms. They really truly care about each client. As a plus, they always have positive attitudes, which matters tremendously when you are in a stressful legal situation.
