Types of Injuries | Paralysis
Vehicle accidents can cause serious spinal cord injuries. When the injury is severe enough, it can result in paralysis. Some studies have shown that as many as 55% of all paralysis cases result from an vehicle accident of some kind. Paralysis is the result of damage to the nervous system and is characterized by the inability to move or the loss of coordination of one or more muscles. In many instances an individual loses all feeling to the affected area(s). Paralysis may be temporary or permanent, depending upon the severity and type.
Treatment and care of individuals who’ve been paralyzed in a vehicle accident may involve costly surgeries, intense physical, occupational or speech therapies, specialized nursing care, and maintenance of ongoing health complications due to paralysis- to name a few. Individuals who’ve been paralyzed as a result of a vehicle accident face profound life-changing struggles that can affect every aspect of their lives.
