Making a spinal cord injury claim

Paraplegia is a condition of which the body is paralysed and cannot move as a result of some sort of physical trauma.

Paralysis can have a huge impact on the quality of life for the sufferer and their families who will have to work hard to look after and find care for their family member. 

This can be a shocking experience, of which you don’t have to go through alone. Our specially trained medical lawyers will be on the case to try to achieve maximum compensation for the injuries. 

The money can be used to cover any financial losses in earnings or medical or administrative costs incurred as a result of the paraplegia and try to get life somewhat back on track.

What are the Different Types of Paraplegia?

There are many different forms of paraplegia / paralysis. Here is a brief outline of each type:

  • Localised Paralysis: Is a type of paralysis that only effects specific body parts of sections of the body.
  • Generalised Paralysis: Where larger parts of the body are affected, there are further specific type of generalised paralysis: 
  • Monoplegia: this is where only one limb is paralysed
  • Hemiplegia: the arm and leg on the same side are both paralysed
  • Paraplegia: both legs are paralysed and sometimes the pelvis and lower body

Psychological Stress

In addition to a paralysis injury, many people will suffer from psychological stress too.

During the healing process – the duration of which fluctuates from person to person, depending on injuries and personal circumstances – some people notice signs of increased stress. One such condition often cited being Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (or PTSD).

Elsewhere, anxiety, depression, anguish, fearfulness, issues with sleep and reoccurring nightmares about the crash can play out.

Psychological Injury

Physical effects of a paralysis injury

In cases of paralysis, there are many factors to take into consideration.

The treatment and follow up care for spinal cord injury cases have a habit of being very expensive and can often involve multiple procedures and necessitate continuous care being provided for the victim, whose capacity to both physically and/or emotionally support themselves could be significantly compromised.

There’s no doubt about it; serious injury can cause trauma, intense pains and have a stressful impact on the victim and their family as they learn to adapt and find coping mechanisms.

Be it a road traffic accident, an accident in your workplace or an accident which befalls you in a public place, all of these accident types can escalate to a serious injury claim.
