Paralysis and Spinal Cord Injuries
Baker, Burton & Lundy: Award-Winning Southern California Personal Injury Attorneys Who Care
Paralysis is the loss of muscle function in one or more muscles, and may also include loss of feeling (sensory loss) in the affected area. It is most often caused by damage to the spinal cord. A spinal cord may be damaged by stroke, trauma or disease, but a spinal cord injury is caused by trauma rather than a health condition. Depending on where the spinal cord and nerve roots are damaged, the symptoms can vary widely, including:
- Loss of motor functions or sensation in the limbs or other body parts
- Loss of manual dexterity
- Loss of reflexes or balance
- Difficulty breathing
- Pain in the neck or spine
- Loss of bowel or bladder control
- Loss of sexual function
If the negligence of another has caused any of these conditions, we want to help you receive compensation for the impact this has had on your life and the lives of loved ones.
