Paraplegia is one specific type of paralysis. You might be affected by paraplegia when you do not have movement or feeling in your legs and waist. If you are determined to have this condition, along with limited or no movement at all in your torso, you could be diagnosed as being paraplegic.
Paraplegia Is Paralysis That Affects You From The Waist On Down
Paraplegia is a type of paralysis and spinal cord injury that causes the interruption of signals between the brain and other parts of the body. When you have paraplegia you cannot feel your affected body parts and are insensitive to pain or temperature for the most part. This condition jeopardizes your health because of the inability to feel further pain.Paraplegia can be caused by automobile accidents (even minor rear-end car accidents with older cars that have no head rests) and injuries. Vertebrae bones in the spinal column protect the spinal cord. In order to cause paraplegia, the injury must be very traumatic in nature to damage the nerves encased in bone. Traumatic causation can vary but often involve serious auto accidents or slip and fall accidents.Though you can still have a very fulfilling life, you end up not enjoying the same things you did prior to the accident and your life change dramatically. That is why as the paralysis attorneys at our firm seek the maximum settlement for personal injury cases that result in paraplegia.
