Dedicated Oklahoma Paralysis Attorneys
have you suffered a debilitating spinal cord injury?
Estimates say nearly one in 50 people live with some form of temporary or permanent paralysis—the complete or partial loss of motor function in a part of the body. Those diagnosed with paralysis often require physical or occupational therapy, vocational training, or psychological counseling long after their initial injury.
Common Causes of Paralysis
- Severe Stroke
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
Types of Paralysis
Medical professionals define several types of paralysis based on the number of limbs and area of the body affected:
- Monoplegia: Affects a single area of the body, typically one limb
- Hemiplegia: Affects an arm and leg on one side of the body
- Paraplegia: Affects below the waist, typically both legs, hips, and more
- Quadriplegia: Affects below the neck, typically all four limbs and the torso
Paralysis is extremely widespread in the United States affecting about 1.7 percent of the population. The leading cause of paralysis was a stroke (33.7%) followed by spinal cord injuries (27.7%).
Paralysis is the loss of the ability to move (and at times feel) in part or most of the body.
Paralysis can cause serious physical, mental and financial strain on your life. Those living with paralysis are often left with major financial burdens that affect not only themselves but their families. To put it in perspective, spinal cord injuries which are the second leading cause of paralysis cost about 40.5 billion dollars annually.
