Paralysis

At Broadway Law Firm, we provide powerful legal representation for clients who have been paralyzed due to the actions of others. Our Los Angeles lawyers have decades of experience handling spinal cord injury cases throughout Southern California. Paralysis will challenge you and your family unlike anything ever has, a truly catastrophic injury. Our attorneys will be by your side, fighting to recover the compensation you need and deserve.

A Basic Explanation of Paralysis

Paralysis occurs when damage to the spinal cord prevents signals from moving from the brain down the spinal cord and to other areas of the body. If the spinal injury is “complete,” that means the person will have a total lack of motor and sensory function in the affected parts of the body. If the injury is “incomplete,” the person may retain some function and feeling because some signals are still able to travel from the brain to the affected area.

Loss of movement and feeling are the most obvious results of paralysis, but they are far from the only complications. A paralyzed person may experience reduced blood flow and heart rate, blood clots, difficulty breathing, loss of muscle tissue, loss of bone density, loss of bladder or bowel control, trouble swallowing, and many other problems. It is easy to understand why paralysis is such a catastrophic injury [link to new Catastrophic Injuries page].

Handling All Types of Paralysis Cases

Broadway Law Firm has successfully represented clients in cases involving all five of the main forms of paralysis:

  • Quadriplegia : Occurs when the body is paralyzed below the neck. You may also see it referred to as tetraplegia.
  • Paraplegia : This usually, but not always, means paralysis of the lower body. The injuries causing paraplegia usually happen in the person’s lower or mid-back area.
  • Hemiplegia : The refers to paralysis of an arm and a leg on the same side of the body.
  • Diplegia : The same area on both sides of the body is paralyzed, such as both arms or both legs.
  • Monoplegia : Paralysis of a single limb.

Paralysis can occur under many different circumstances, particularly when negligence is involved. Our Los Angeles team has represented clients who were paralyzed in car accidents, construction site accidents, slip-and-falls, workplace accidents and due to medical malpractice.

Why Compensation is so Critical for Paralysis Victims

According to recent statistics, the cost of living with paralysis is as follows:

  • Complete quadriplegia : $1.1 million in the first year and $185,000 every year thereafter.
  • Incomplete quadriplegia : $770,000 in the first year and $113,000 every year thereafter.
  • Paraplegia : $519,000 in the first year and $69,000 every year thereafter.

Few families have the resources to cover these levels of expense, and insurance may not cover everything. And these numbers do not account for the patient’s emotional pain and suffering. For these reasons, a personal injury lawsuit is a viable option for anyone who was paralyzed as a result of someone else’s actions.

Reviews

“I reached out to Broadway Law Firm regarding a personal injury claim. The Attorney who took my case was Mark. I would definitely recommend Mark. He has the experience necessary to win your case and get you the highest compensation. Thank you Broadway Law Firm I couldn’t be happier.”

Fernando Vasquez

Client

“I had interviewed 12 lawyers before hiring the Broadway Law Firm. My case got affected by the pandemic and it was an extremely stressful and difficult time. Most of the other lawyers treated me like earning potential and gave me the rates I could not afford, without any promises to win my case. Once I talked to Mark Kiran I had hope. I was then represented by Anthony Catena who always was very professional and treated me with respect. He didn’t drug my case, made sure I don’t accumulate unnecessary charges, and was a great support during the most stressful time in my life. He won my case, got my son back to me AND got me some money back from my ex to pay my legal fees. I am beyond grateful for their work and support. If you are looking for a legal representation don’t waste your time and call them, they got you.”
