Paralysis, whether temporary or permanent, partial or full, is by far one of the scariest and most daunting injuries anyone can incur. And when that injury is a result of someone else’s negligence, there may not be a greater injustice.
Categories of paralysis include: paraplegia, quadriplegia, hemiplegia, and diplegia. Paraplegia impacts the lower extremities and can include parts of the torso. It is usually caused by a lower spine or nerve injury. Quadriplegia impacts all four limbs as well as the torso and neck areas. It is usually caused by an upper spine or neck injury. Hemiplegia is when paralysis occurs in one side of the body as opposed to diplegia, which is when the paralysis impacts both the left and right sides of the body.
Paraplegia and quadriplegia can be caused by many things, including:
- Traumatic accidents (car, motorcycle, boat, aviation, falls, and others)
- Work accidents
- Contact sports
- Cerebral palsy
- Multiple sclerosis
