Auto accident victims may sustain various types of injuries, but some are especially disruptive. For example, those who struggle with paralysis following a crash may struggle with the physical consequences of their situation, and they may face devastating mental and financial issues as well. If you have become paralyzed after a motor vehicle collision, or someone in your family is struggling with paralysis due to an auto accident, exploring your legal options is paramount if the wreck was caused by a reckless driver.
Paralysis can affect auto accident victims in various ways. Some people lose the ability to walk, while others may not be able to use their arms any longer. Not only can this dramatically affect someone’s quality of life and ability to enjoy various hobbies, but they may also be unable to work due to paralysis. Missing work can bring on severe financial problems, and the hospital bills associated with paralysis and other auto accident injuries can be significant.
Sadly, negligent drivers will continue to cause accidents and leave innocent people with a myriad of injuries. Our law firm firmly believes that those who cause an accident because they decided to drive drunk or go over the speed limit should be held responsible. Paralysis has disrupted many lives, and it is particularly upsetting for victims and those who they love to know that these injuries were completely avoidable if drivers had followed traffic safety guidelines and obeyed the law.
