Paralysis Injury Lawyer in San Diego
Causes of Paralysis
Paralysis is a form a motor damage that results in complete loss of function in a group of muscles or area of the body. In addition, a loss of feeling may also accompany paralysis. Causes of paralysis are almost always due to damage to the nervous system, and in particular the spinal cord. When nerves in the spinal cord are injured, a patient may experience paraplegia or quadriplegia, resulting in the inability to move his or her legs or arms. In many cases, paralysis is brought on by external injuries, such as those suffered in a slip or an automobile accident. However, in some occasions paralysis can result from negligence during medical treatment or surgery. If you or a loved one has experienced paralysis caused by medical malpractice, contacting a San Diego medical malpractice attorney can help you better understand your legal rights.
Some common forms of medical negligence that lead to paralysis include injuries sustained during birth, such as brachial plexus palsy or other birth trauma, injuries sustained during a faulty epidural, and other surgical mistakes. If you are the victim of paralysis caused by medical malpractice, your way of life can be altered greatly. Physical challenges, emotional scarring, loss of income and earning potential, increased medical costs and the inability to participate in physical activities that you once enjoyed are all unwelcome lifestyle changes.
