If you or a loved one has sustained severe physical trauma that resulted in spinal fractures, paralysis or neurological injuries, it is imperative that you retain the services of a Mesa, Arizona paralysis injury lawyer. Whether a car, truck or motorcycle accident is to blame, or perhaps something or someone else was the reason for your pain, your injuries may be long-lasting and result in devastating physical and emotional demands.
According to The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, approximately one in fifty people living in the U.S. suffers from some sort of paralysis; that roughly equates to more than 6 million individuals. Furthermore, the NSCISC (National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center) states that more than 12,000 new spinal cord injuries are reported annually. With these statistics, it’s no wonder that paralysis lawsuits are rather common in Phoenix and Mesa.
If the spinal cord is damaged in the upper back area, it can result in paralysis of the neck downward (known as tetraplegia or quadriplegia). On the other hand, if the spinal cord is damaged at the base of the back, it can result in paralysis from the waist downward (paraplegia). Over time, a victim may struggle to pay for expensive ongoing medical care to recuperate. They may also consider filing a lawsuit for paralysis compensation.
