Minnesota Paraplegia Attorney

Paraplegia occurs when the lower extremities are impaired of motor and sensory functions.  The thoracic, lumbar or sacral regions sustain the trauma in the spinal canal.  Many things can cause paraplegia, however our focus is on paraplegia from acute spinal cord injury and medical malpractice, specifically from:

  • truck accidents
  • motorcycle accidents
  • car accidents
  • slip and fall accidents
  • construction accidents
  • failure to diagnose (a spinal cord injury or meningitis)
  • surgical error (including failure to stabilize the spine)

Paraplegia Complications

Complications of paraplegia include impotence, pressure sores, thrombosis (blood clots) bladder and bowel incontinence and pneumonia.

Long Term Measures

Measures for living with paraplegia include rehabilitation, counseling physiotherapy, using a standing frame, assisted home care, renovating your house to make it accessible, investing in a vehicle to accommodate a wheelchair, and possible future surgeries.

Compensation for Spinal Cord Injury Victims

If you are paraplegic due to a spinal cord injury that was not your fault, you can claim for the following:

  • past and future medical expenses
  • payments for replacement services
  • loss of past and future wages
  • pain and suffering
  • emotional distress
  • loss of companionship
  • loss of enjoyment of life
  • loss of assistance, advice and/or protection
