Did An Injury Leave You Paralyzed?

Last updated on October 14, 2021

Neck and back injuries are particularly severe because they involve the spinal cord. Damage to the spinal cord, no matter how minor, can cause paraplegia, quadriplegia, or total or partial paralysis. Often, this damage is irreversible.

It is not fair that you should endure long-term paralysis because of another party’s negligence. At Downs Law Firm, we believe that the survivors of personal injuries deserve compensation for their damages. From our offices in Bastrop and Monroe, we help clients throughout Louisiana who suffered loss of motion to seek monetary compensation and hold the negligent party accountable.

The Unexpected Damages Of Paralysis

Physical pain is just one component of paraplegia, quadriplegia and paralysis. These conditions can have numerous other damages that you did not anticipate, such as:

  • Ongoing medical treatment: Neck and back injuries can require multiple surgeries and lifelong physical therapy, resulting in medical bills in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
  • Modifications to the home: You may need to add expensive modifications to your home to make it wheelchair accessible.
  • Lost wages: If you miss work due to medical appointments or can no longer perform your job, you stand to lose substantial income.
  • Emotional suffering: Losing your range of motion is incredibly traumatic, and the emotional pain can last years.

You should not have to endure the burden of these damages. Work with Downs Law Firm to recover compensation for these and other damages.
