What You Should Know About Paralysis Injuries
Paralysis generally occurs as a result of damage to the spinal cord or through a broken neck, which happens as a result of blunt force trauma.

- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical/Surgical mistakes
- ATV accidents
- Sporting injuries
Injuries Involving Paralysis and Facial Nerve Damage
Depending on the placement and severity of nerve damage to the spinal cord, paralysis may include loss of feeling and function from the neck down (known as quadriplegia) or from the lower half of the body (known as paraplegia). Paralysis injuries may be complete or partial. They can occur in one area of the body or a larger area. The most common cause of the various types of paralysis occur as a result of motor vehicle accidents in which the victim’s spinal cord becomes damaged or broken. Ongoing medical treatment, including various therapies, may be utilized as well as personal care and assistance in the matters of everyday life and functioning, resulting in tremendous medical expenses. When this type of injury has been caused by the negligence of another party, a personal injury claim can be used to seek compensation for your damages.
Facial paralysis can be caused by lacerations suffered in a car accident. Birth trauma can also cause damage to the facial nerve.
