The complete loss of muscle function in one or more muscles is a medical definition of paralysis. This can result in not only a loss of motor control, but a loss of feeling in the affected areas as well and can be permanent in nature. Paralysis can be restricted to a certain area or limb of the body or can be more generalized throughout the body. Violent motor vehicle accidents or even work-related accidents can all cause paralysis. Common types of paralysis include paraplegia, which affects the lower limbs of the body, quadriplegia, in which the victim is unable to move all four limbs and partial paralysis, where an individual is unable to move one side of the body or a portion of it. Whatever form of paralysis you may be faced with, we feel you deserve competent legal representation to aggressively work for your rights to proper treatment and care.
What is fair compensation?

As paralysis is always a serious injury, the question of what is fair compensation becomes very important for immediate medical care and for your future. If your paralysis was caused by the negligence of another ,you may be able to file a lawsuit against the person or persons who caused the injury. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney can assist you to figure out what compensation you need and deserve.
The first thing to consider is what the cost of your immediate medical care is and will be in the near future. This can include operations, hospitalization and other costs.
