If you or a loved one has suffered an injury that resulted in the loss or paralysis of the legs, the attorneys of Wilshire Law Firm want to express our sincere wishes for your speedy and complete recovery. However, if that paraplegia injury was to any extent due to the negligence of others, or if an insurance company does not want to adequately compensate your losses, the legal services of our personal injury attorneys can ensure those parties uphold their obligations to restore your financial circumstances and long-term health.
Paraplegia injuries are among the most traumatic, severe and extreme types of personal injury that an accident victim can incur. Paraplegia injuries are a permanent disability that is usually associated with tremendous pain and suffering. The victim is paralyzed and restricted to a wheelchair for life. Immediate medical attention is required, and we recommend that a certified personal injury attorney be engaged as soon as possible to ensure all required treatments are provided and the victim is compensated for all expenses and loss.
For those who suffer a spinal cord injury resulting in paraplegia, the cost is immeasurable. Although paraplegics have use of their arms and can regain some independence after completing an extensive rehabilitation program, they still require ongoing medical care and probably some assistance with daily tasks. A financial settlement can never replace that loss.
However, medical costs must be paid. With the average first year costs to treat paraplegia at more than $150,000, the medical expenses can be a significant financial burden on individuals and their families. Your financial situation can deteriorate quickly and, because victims spend almost 60 days in acute care and rehabilitation, loss of income contributes to the financial decline.
