Paralysis

Paralysis is one of the most severe injuries an individual can suffer.

Georgia residents who are in serious auto, tractor-trailer, truck, and motorcycle collisions suffer devastating paralysis injuries. In addition, dangerous conditions at Atlanta premises (swimming pools, defective buildings, and parking lots) may result in paralysis injuries.

Paralysis is generally defined as: complete or partial loss of function, especially when involving the motion or sensation party of the body. Thus, the concept of paralysis is broader than simply the inability to move a body part. Paraplegia is generally considered to occur where there is paralysis to the torso and lower part of the body. Quadriplegia is generally considered to occur when there is paralysis to the arms, torso, and legs.

Also, some people confuse paralysis and neuropathy. Neuropathy is a disease or malfunction of the nerves. This condition often causes numbness, tingling, burning, or loss of sensation in the arms or legs. A herniated disc or other traumatic or chronic condition in the body may cause neuropathy due to impingement on one or more nerves.

When a person suffers a paralysis injury, he or she may have a limited—or no—ability to engage in activities of daily living (bathing, eating). A paralysis injury may also deprive the victim of the ability to work and, therefore, securing financial compensation is crucial in order to provide long term security for the injured person and his or her family. A paralysis sufferer usually requires: continued medical care, skilled attendant care at home, and alterations to the home in order to accommodate limited mobility.

A good resource for those wanting to learn more about paralysis is The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.

One of the best facilities in the Southeast for individuals with catastrophic spinal cord injuries is the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
