How We Can Help You Claim Compensation For An Injury Leading To Paralysis

Over the past 40 years, our specialist serious injury solicitors have successfully recovered compensation each year for those who have been paralysed in accidents caused by others.

Paralysis is a term that covers a range of injuries where there is a loss of muscle function in part of the body. It can result in a loss of feeling and other bodily functions. Paralysis can either be temporary or permanent, and it is not usually caused by problems with the muscles themselves, but by damage to the nerves and spinal cord, which control those muscles.

Types of paralysis include:

  • monoplegia – where one limb is paralysed
  • hemiplegia – where the arm and the leg on one side of the body are paralysed
  • paraplegia – where both legs and sometimes the pelvis and some of the lower body are paralysed
  • tetraplegia (also known as quadriplegia) – where both the arms and legs are paralysed.

The most common causes of paralysis are:

  • head injuries caused by car accidents, blows to the head or falls
  • spinal cord injuries caused by misdiagnosis of medical conditions and surgical errors
  • stroke
  • multiple sclerosis.

If you or a member of your family has become paralysed as a result of an accident, which was not your fault, then our specialist solicitors can help you to recover compensation to include funding for medical treatment and rehabilitation. We can also look to claim for equipment such as wheelchairs, modifications to your house such as ramps and lowering surfaces, adaptations to your car to enable you to drive, the cost of carers, the costs of the equipment or help that you need so that you can live as full a life as possible. We can even build you a new home in certain cases.

Our aim is to help you to recover the rightful amount of compensation that you deserve whilst striving to help improve the quality of your life. We always take a practical but caring approach to all claims.
