Paralysis – Paraplegia – Quadriplegia Lawyer in New Orleans, LA

Paralysis involves the loss of function of the muscles in a part of your body. The level of paralysis may vary: it can be permanent or temporary; it can be complete or partial; it can occur on one or both sides of your body; and it can be widespread or in just one area. Paraplegia is a term which refers to a person who cannot feel anything in the lower part of his or her body. Quadriplegia refers to the inability to move the arms and legs. If you or a loved one is now a paraplegic or quadriplegic as a result of an accident or injury caused by someone else’s negligence or carelessness, contact the law firm of Gibby Andry today for a free consultation.

Paralysis can be caused by a medical condition or disease, or by trauma or accident, such as a spinal cord injury. Typically, paralysis occurs downward from the point of injury or trauma to the spinal cord. In addition to extensive medical treatment, a paraplegic or quadriplegic may also require rehabilitative and psychiatric care.

Secondary Conditions

In addition to facing the loss of muscle function, a paraplegic or quadriplegic is likely to suffer from secondary conditions. Secondary conditions result from the primary accident or injury. In the case of paralysis, the following secondary conditions are common:

  • Pain
  • Depression
  • Bladder and bowel control and care
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Sexual concerns
  • Skin issues
