Phoenix Paraplegia Attorneys

Every year about 12,000 people in the US suffer from spinal cord injuries. Some are able to recover fully, while others unfortunately suffer from long-lasting disabilities. When people lose function and/or sensation in the lower halves of their bodies, this is a condition called paraplegia.

Paraplegia can be caused by illness or genetic conditions, but is most commonly caused by injuries to the spinal cord. The most frequent causes of these injuries include motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, and falls. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with paraplegia due to a preventable accident, the Phoenix paraplegia lawyers at Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C. can help. Call us at 877-366-5557 for information on what we can do for you.

The Consequences of Paraplegia

Paraplegia is associated with damage to the lower areas of the spine. Its symptoms depend on the precise location, as well as the extent of damage done. Partial injuries (where nerves in the spinal cord are damaged but not completely severed) are associated with milder symptoms than complete injuries (where nerves are severed).

People suffering from paraplegia after an accident may experience impairments like:

  • Decreased or fully lost bodily sensation below the injury
  • Decreased or fully lost ability to walk or move legs
  • Incontinence
  • Impaired sexual functioning
  • Pressure sores caused by difficulty of movement

Many people with paraplegia need medical assistance, physical therapy, and sometimes surgery to cope with these difficulties. Unfortunately, this assistance can be very costly. Our team of experienced Phoenix spinal cord injury lawyers can help you learn about winning fair compensation for these costs.
