Paraplegia Attorneys in Orlando
Trusted Representation for Victims of Spinal Cord Injuries
Paraplegia is an impairment in motor or sensory function of the lower extremities and is usually caused by a spinal cord injury or congenital condition such as spina bifida. The area of the spinal canal affected in paraplegia is either the thoracic, lumbar, or sacral regions. A paraplegic still has the use of their arms and upper body.
Spastic paraplegia is a form of paraplegia defined by spasticity of the affected muscles, rather than flaccid paralysis. Individuals with paraplegia can range in levels of difficulty, which means treatment methods will vary as well. Physiotherapy is the most common treatment for paraplegia to help regain some motor function. Wheelchair mobility is also an important skill to learn, as this will be a paraplegic’s most common form of transportation. There is no treatment to reverse the paralysis.
Causes of Paraplegia
Paraplegia causing full or partial paralysis can be caused by any number of things, the most common of which are:
- Accidents caused by negligence, i.e. car crashes
- Defective machinery accidents
- Improperly maintained premises, i.e. unmarked wet floors
- Defective products
- Surgical errors & other forms of medical malpractice
- Workplace injuries
