Have You Been Paralyzed?

Few injuries can be as devastating to the human body as spinal cord and brain injuries. Paralysis can often result from these and, unfortunately in many cases, be permanent for victims.

Types and Causes of Paralysis
There are many different kinds of paralysis, many of which are associated with serious medical conditions. When it comes to spinal cord and brain injury, however, there are a few different types that are prevalent.
Common kinds of paralysis resulting from injury include:
- Paraplegia - paralyzed lower half of the body
- Quadriplegia - paralyzed arms and legs
- Monolegia - single paralyzed limb
- Hemiphegia - paralyzed side of the body
Nearly any kind of injury that can damage the spine or brain can cause paralysis, but it is most common in car accidents, other road collisions, and serious slip and falls. Stroke is also a common cause of paralysis and can result from various
medical malpractice circumstances.
