Advocating For Paralysis Victims

Short of death, full or partial paralysis can be the worst outcome of a car accident, work mishap or medical malpractice incident. Not only has the victim lost the use of his arms and/or his legs, but he also faces years of expensive rehabilitation, with no guarantee that he will ever recover the use of his affected limbs.

If you or a loved one has been stricken with paralysis as the result of an accident that was not your fault, you should contact me for a free consultation. I am a highly regarded trial attorney with more than 30 years of experience litigating medical malpractice lawsuits in Texas. I have an extensive background dealing with partially or totally paralyzed victims seeking financial damages.

Paralysis Has Serious Long-Term Financial Consequences

Medical science is still in its relative infancy when dealing with paralytic strokes — that is, brain hemorrhages that result in paralysis to one side of the body — or damage to the spinal cord. There is no cure on the horizon, which means that a paralyzed individual may:

  • Be restricted to a wheelchair for the rest of his life
  • Need assistance dressing, eating, or performing other everyday functions
  • Require regular rehabilitative therapy to keep his paralyzed limbs fit and toned
  • Have no choice but to enter a permanent rehabilitation facility, at great cost to his family

Even if you have the world's best medical insurance, it's unlikely that you will be 100 percent covered for the cost of full or partial paralysis. Does your policy cover trips in an ambulance to and from a care facility? The cost of equipment — wheelchairs, monitors, etc. — and their upkeep? Do you need to provide co-payments for various prescription medicines, which can total thousands of dollars a year?

If you add the numbers up, you can see why it's important to hold the responsible party to account if you or a loved one has been partially or totally paralyzed in an accident. If the paralysis was the result of the negligence, you may have grounds for a claim.
