Paralysis, which can include paraplegiaquadriplegia, or triplegia, is the loss of strength or mobility in a part of the body.

The extent of the paralysis depends upon the severity and the location of the injury. Paralysis and loss of sensation may be partial or total, temporary or permanent. If function and mobility are not regained within several months after the injury, the loss is more likely to be permanent. Any injury that damages the spinal cord or nerve pathways in the spinal cord can cause permanent loss.

People who are weak or paralyzed due to a spinal cord injury are also at risk of developing other problems, such as bedsores, urinary tract infections, and pneumonia.

Given the serious nature of spinal cord injuries, it is important to consult an experienced paralysis accident lawyer to seek all sources of liability and compensation.
