Were You Seriously Injured?
Serious spinal cord injuries can cause paralysis, leaving the victim unable to feel or move parts of their body. This type of injury can dramatically impact the victim’s ability to interact with the world and force them and their family to restructure their lifestyles in order to accommodate these changes. If your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligent or wrongful actions, you deserve the opportunity to file a lawsuit to secure compensation.
When someone’s actions seriously injure you and result in paralysis, you may be able to file a lawsuit to secure the compensation you need to cover any damages or medical bills you may have incurred. Our Dallas personal injury attorneys at Aldous \ Walker LLP have spent decades representing injured victims across the nation, and have the knowledge you need to feel confident moving forwards.

Different Types Of Paralysis
Paralysis is broken down into two different categories depending on its severity. Those suffering from incomplete paralysis still have some level of motor and sensory function below the point of injury, while those suffering from complete paralysis have lost all motor and sensory function below the point of injury. Paralysis is also separated into two additional categories depending on how much of the body is affected:
- Paraplegia: Paraplegia affects victims’ lower torso and legs. This type of paralysis is more common when the injury occurred lower down on the victim’s spine.
- Quadriplegia: Quadriplegia affects the victim’s entire body. Depending on the severity of the paralysis, the victim may also need assistance breathing. This type of paralysis is more common when the injury occurred higher up on the victim’s spine.
In the most extreme cases, victims may require 24/7 care to complete even the most basic of tasks like using the restroom or eating a meal. Paralyzed victims may also need to modify their vehicles to accommodate their restricted movement, which, when combined with the cost of treatment and rehabilitation, can cause the bills to dramatically increase.
