San Diego Paraplegia / Quadriplegia Attorney

Are You Suffering From Paralysis?

Even a slight spinal cord injury can have devastating effects on someone’s daily life, and a serious injury can lead to permanent damage that may render the victim incapable of performing some of the most basic tasks.

Paralysis is one such injury – depending on where the injury occurred, the victim may lose the use of their legs or their entire body. No matter what caused your injury, whether it was from a car accident, truck accident, medical malpractice, or any other kind of incident, paralyzed victims suffer major life changes while learning to live with a disability.

Give us a call at (619) 215-1488 to speak with a San Diego personal injury lawyer today.

These changes, along with the medical bills and ongoing rehabilitation and care can cost many millions of dollars. As the victim, you shouldn’t have to shoulder this financial burden, which is where we come in. At The McClellan Law Firm, our San Diego personal injury attorneys have secured hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients over the past 25 plus years, and continue to provide the elite legal assistance that our clients deserve in their time of need. Contact us today to speak with one of our attorneys about your case.

Different Types of Paralysis

Paralysis can affect you in a variety of ways depending on where you were injured and how serious the injury was. The severity of the symptoms are classified in two different ways:

  • If you suffer from incomplete paralysis, it means that you still have some motor and perhaps sensory function below the site of your injury.
  • If you suffer from complete paralysis, it means that you have lost most of or all motor and sensory function below the site of your injury.

Depending on where your spine was injured, your paralysis could be classified in one of two ways:

  • Paraplegia means that your legs, pelvis, and lower portion of your trunk lack total motor and sensory function.
  • Quadriplegia means that your entire body, from the upper body down, lacks total motor and sensory function.

Any level of paralysis requires a complete change in your lifestyle, including extensive modifications to your home and modes of transportation in order to accommodate your lack of mobility, but people suffering from quadriplegia usually require around-the-clock care in order to perform even the most basic of functions.

While more severe cases of paralysis may cost more than less severe cases, even incomplete paraplegia will result in millions of dollars of treatment and equipment over a lifetime. On top of seeking compensation to cover these past and future costs, you may also be entitled to recover lost earnings or loss of your capacity to earn, as well as loss of enjoyment of life, pain, suffering, and any other damages you have and will incur as a result of your injury. Your spouse usually would also be entitled to recover for the changes in the relationship between the two of you, resulting from your injury.
