Triplegia is a condition of paralysis in which a person cannot feel or move one side of his or her body, and the person’s opposite arm or leg is also paralyzed. The condition is often caused by an accident or as the result of another injury. Triplegia is one form of a group of motor disorders known as cerebral palsy.
Because triplegia is usually a permanent disability there are several factors involved which change the life of a triplegia victim forever. Lifelong therapy, walking aids, medical care, and acute mental distress are daily facts of life for a person living with triplegia. Because all of these elements carry significant financial costs, our office’s Northern California triplegia attorneys may be able help.
