Types of Paralysis Resulting From Accidents

Our paralysis injury lawyers in San Bernardino are well-versed in representing clients with various forms of paralysis, each presenting unique challenges and implications:

  1. Diplegia affects symmetrical body parts, like both legs or both arms, commonly seen in conditions like cerebral palsy.
  2. Quadriplegia, or Tetraplegia, occurs in all four limbs, typically resulting from spinal cord injuries in the cervical region.
  3. Paraplegia affects the lower half of the body, including the legs and lower trunk, and is often caused by spinal cord injuries below the first thoracic spinal nerve.
  4. Monoplegia affects only one limb, such as an arm or leg, caused by nerve damage or specific muscle group conditions.
  5. Hemiplegia impacts one side of the body, usually caused by damage to the opposite side of the brain, often seen in conditions like stroke or traumatic brain injury.

Common Causes of Paralysis in San Bernardino 

Our injury attorneys have encountered several common causes of paralysis, including:

  1. Workplace Injuries: Accidents at construction sites, factories, or other workplaces may cause spinal cord trauma, due to falls, equipment malfunctions, or other hazards.
  2. Motor Vehicle Accidents: Collisions involving cars, motorcycles, trucks, or pedestrians can result in severe spinal cord injuries, leading to paralysis.
  3. Medical Malpractice: Negligence during surgery, childbirth, or medical treatment can lead to spinal cord injuries, resulting in a paralysis injury due to errors such as surgical mistakes, anesthesia errors, or misdiagnosis.
  4. Slip and Fall Accidents: Falls from heights, on uneven surfaces, or due to slippery conditions are especially among older adults.
  5. Sports Injuries: High-impact sports or recreational activities can lead to trauma due to impacts, collisions, or falls during activities like football, diving, or gymnastics.
  6. Assault or Violence: Physical assault and gunshot wounds are more common than they should be.
  7. Medical Conditions: Certain medical conditions like stroke, multiple sclerosis, or spinal tumors can lead to paralysis if they affect the spinal cord or brain.

The Long-Term Impact of Paralysis on Quality of Life

Living with paralysis is a big change that affects not just the person who’s paralyzed but also their family and friends. It can change how you do everyday things, your job, and how you feel about yourself.

One important right is getting financial support to cover medical bills, equipment like wheelchairs, making your home easier to live in, lost pay if you can’t work anymore, and even for pain or feeling really sad because of how life has changed. This money doesn’t fix everything but helps make life easier.

Having an experienced lawyer by your side makes a big difference. We know all about the laws and can fight for what you deserve so that you don’t have to worry about it on top of everything else. We advocate for you when dealing with insurance companies or in court – places where it’s easy to get pushed around if you’re unsure what’s happening.

In short, if paralysis has changed your life or the life of someone close to you, knowing your rights is key. Finding someone who knows the law well means having one less thing on your plate during this tough time.


What Compensation Can Victims Seek?

You may seek various compensation to address these challenges and rebuild your life:
  1. Medical Expenses to cover the extensive medical treatment, surgeries, rehabilitation, physical therapy, and assistive devices like wheelchairs or home modifications. Compensation for medical expenses aims to cover the costs associated with past, present, and future medical care related to the injury.
  2. Lost Income: Compensation for lost income seeks to reimburse you for wages lost due to missed work during recovery and any future earning capacity.
  3. Pain and Suffering: Compensation for pain and suffering aims to provide financial restitution for your physical discomfort, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life resulting from the injury.
  4. Disability Accommodations to support your daily living activities, such as accessible housing, transportation, or personal care assistance. Compensation for disability accommodations aims to cover the costs of adapting living spaces, purchasing specialized equipment, or hiring caregivers to enhance the quality of life for the paralyzed individual.
  5. Loss of Consortium: Damages for loss of consortium seeks to compensate spouses or family members for the loss of companionship, affection, and support.
  6. Punitive Damages: In cases involving egregious negligence or intentional harm, you may seek punitive damages as a form of punishment against the responsible party and as a deterrent against similar misconduct in the future.
We highly advise you to work with experienced personal injury lawyers who can assess the full extent of their damages and pursue maximum compensation through negotiations with insurance companies or litigation in court.

  1. Local Knowledge: A specialized paralysis lawyer in San Bernardino understands the local laws, court procedures, and judges’ preferences, allowing them to navigate the legal system effectively on your behalf.
  2. Maximizing Compensation: With extensive experience in cases like yours, we can advocate for maximum compensation for your injuries. We assess the full extent of your damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

First Steps Following a Paralysis Diagnosis

Knowing the initial steps following such a diagnosis is essential for coping with the immediate aftermath and planning for the future. 

  1. Seek Immediate Medical Attention: Upon receiving a diagnosis, prioritize seeking prompt medical care from qualified healthcare professionals to address immediate medical needs and begin necessary treatment and rehabilitation.
  2. Follow Medical Recommendations: Adhere to the treatment plan outlined by medical professionals, which may include medications, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or surgical interventions, to maximize recovery and improve long-term outcomes.
  3. Document Medical Records: Keep detailed records of all medical appointments, treatments received, medications prescribed, and any symptoms or changes in condition experienced following the paralysis diagnosis.
  4. Preserve Evidence: Preserve any evidence related to the circumstances of the injury, such as accident reports, witness statements, or photographs of the accident scene, to support a potential legal claim for compensation.
  5. Evaluate Legal Options: Work closely with your personal injury lawyer to assess the viability of pursuing a legal claim for compensation based on the circumstances of your diagnosis. This includes identifying potentially liable parties and determining the appropriate legal strategy.
  6. Take Care of Yourself: Prioritize self-care and emotional well-being during this challenging time, seeking support from loved ones, mental health professionals, or support groups as needed to cope with the physical and emotional impact.


What Evidence is Needed?

Knowing the specific legal deadlines is vital when pursuing a claim in California. Unlike criminal cases, where misdemeanors and felonies have one-year and three-year filing deadlines, respectively, personal injury claims like paralysis operate under distinct rules.

You generally have two years from the injury date for such civil lawsuits to initiate legal action against the liable parties. This period is crucial for securing compensation. Seeking advice from a knowledgeable attorney early on can help you effectively manage these important timelines.

What Legal Fees to Expect

Our legal fees operate on a contingency basis, meaning we only get paid if the case is successful. This arrangement allows clients to pursue legal action without upfront costs. If the case is successful, we will receive a percentage of the awarded compensation. 

Additionally, you may incur other expenses related to the case, such as court fees, expert witness fees, and administrative costs. It’s essential to discuss these potential expenses with us to fully understand the financial aspects of your case.
