South Hill Paralysis Injury Lawyer

There are few injuries that change a victim’s life more than paralysis. Your life, activities, family, and mental well-being are all deeply impacted. If your injury was the direct result of someone else’s carelessness, don’t delay in reaching out to a South Hill paralysis injury lawyer. A qualified lawyer can investigate your case at no cost and determine if you are eligible to pursue compensation.

While a settlement can’t undo what has happened, it can provide much-needed financial stability for your family at a critical time.

Most Common Accidents that Cause Paralysis

Paralysis, the inability to voluntarily control your muscles, occurs when there is damage to the nervous system. The result can be partial or complete and can impact a single limb or up to all four. In other words, paralysis has variations and degrees of severity.

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistics Center, here are some of the most common accidents leading to paralysis:

No matter what, a paralysis injury can be very expensive. In addition to the initial emergency and hospital care you likely require, there are ongoing medical and caregiving costs to consider.

When You Might Have a Personal Injury Case

As we’ve seen in the section above, there are many ways a victim could become paralyzed. However, not every situation warrants legal action. For instance, if you were injured due to your own risky behavior, you wouldn’t have a case.

In general, you need to be able to prove the following to pursue compensation:

  • There’s an at-fault party. Simply put, someone needs to have behaved negligently or maliciously.
  • You were injured. It’s not enough that someone’s behavior could have hurt you. You need to be able to show that you were injured. When it comes to a serious injury, such as paralysis, this is generally pretty clear.
  • Your injuries are directly related to the negligence. Can we tie your paralysis injury to the at-fault party’s behavior? Or, are there other explanations for your injuries?
  • There were damages. In personal injury law, we use the word “damages” to describe the negative impacts you faced because of your injury. Without a doubt, a paralysis injury has very high damages including medical bills, loss of income, pain, and suffering.

If you can prove each of these, it’s time to call a South Hill paralysis injury lawyer.
