No amount of money can adequately compensate someone who has been paralyzed in an accident caused by someone else's negligence. Jury verdicts, settlements and other monetary awards will help alleviate some of the suffering a paralyzed individual will be forced to endure, but life will be a perpetual reminder of significant loss. Outsiders see the most apparent effects of paralysis:
- Mobility challenges
- Personal care needs
- A need for disability accommodations
A person with paralysis, however, often lives with myriad other painful and difficult realities, including:
- Interpersonal relationships completely changed by dependence and restrictions
- Constant risks of complications such as bladder infections, strokes or broken fingers or toes that can go unnoticed because of lack of sensation
- Neuropathy resulting in chronic pain, burning or tingling sensations
- Inability to take part in life activities that were once integral to one's self-fulfillment: playing a musical instrument, taking mountain hikes, riding horses, riding a bicycle, playing a sport or actively playing with children, to name a few examples
Many people have demonstrated great courage and a strong willpower to overcome or at least cope with limitations imposed by paralysis. Christopher Reeve comes to mind, but there are countless others, some well known and many not well known. The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation conducted a research study that showed that approximately 6 million Americans live with paralysis. Some function with paralysis better than others.

We are aggressive in our advocacy for people who have suffered spinal cord injuries and now live with paralysis. We pursue the resources our clients need to cover all of the expenses and losses that go along with paralysis and also work to monetize the losses that are intangible.
