Paraplegia is a condition associated with loss of sensation or movement of the lower half of the body. This condition is associated with damage to the spinal cord.
The most common causes of spinal cord injury are motor vehicle crashes, falls, acts of violence — such as gunshot wounds — and sporting activities. Other causes include disease, such as polio and spinal cord tumors.
In a small percentage of situations, individuals become paralyzed as a result of medical malpractice, such as surgeries gone wrong, misdiagnosis of disease and errors that occurred during medical procedures.
Besides a loss of sensation or motor functioning, individuals may experience bowel and bladder dysfunction. Other side effects may include chronic pain.
If you suffered your injuries through the negligence of health care providers, you may be entitled to seek compensation.
