Paralysis is a severe and life altering illness. It has a major impact on the victim, their way of life and on their family. If you, a friend or a family member is left paralysed as a result of a third party’s negligence then you can make a claim for compensation. Whilst compensation may not allow the victim to regain full use of their body it may go some way towards making their life more comfortable and will punish the responsible party enough for them to take care in future.
The spine is an important part of the body as it transmits information to the rest of the body. Paralysis is usually caused by an injury to the nerves and the spinal cord. Paralysis can be temporary or permanent and there are two types of paralysis: (i) loss of feeling and movement in the lower part of the body; and (ii) loss of feeling and movement in the upper part of the body.
Make an Injury Claim for Paralysis
You can suffer paralysis as a result of many forms of negligence, be it usually as a result of a road traffic accident, a surgical error, a sports injury or an accident at work. Any compensation claim will be made against the negligent party’s insurance company and the amount you can claim will depend on the extent of your paralysis and how it was caused. Typically a paralysis compensation claim can be anything from a couple of thousand pounds up to millions of pounds. In addition to the compensation for your injuries you can also claim for any other losses, financial or otherwise you have had to incur, for example, damage to property, alternations to the home, care costs, physiotherapy, loss of income and so on.
