What you should know about Paralysis, Paraplegia and Quadriplegia Lawsuits

How do I know if paralysis, quadriplegia or paraplegia was caused by medical malpractice?

To determine if permanent paralysis, quadriplegia, or paraplegia were caused by medical malpractice, ask yourself if your injury could have been avoided by a different doctor in the same situation. If the answer is probably yes, then you may have been a victim of medical malpractice. It is often necessary to analyze medical records to determine that the medical providers’ acts or omissions caused your condition, especially when your condition is almost certainly permanent. Motor-vehicle accidents or slip and fall accidents can also result in catastrophic injuries. Often, these traumatic injuries are not resolved with rehabilitation or physical therapy, so suing is within your legal rights. Fill out our online form, so one of our case analysts can assess your claim and help you determine the best path forward.

When is paralysis most likely to have been a consequence of malpractice?

Paralysis, quadriplegia, and paraplegia can be the unfortunate result of many different circumstances. It is sometimes more difficult to establish liability if, for example, a patient undergoes a complex and risky spine surgery, because injuries like paralysis may be a known risk of the surgery. But you should always consult an attorney to be sure of whether you may have a case worth pursuing. Consult an attorney as quickly as possible to avoid any potential statutes of limitations from barring your claim.

Can I sue a doctor who caused paralysis as a result of medical malpractice?

Yes- however, there has to be some type of injury that the lawsuit is intended to remedy, and it has to be clear that the provider’s actions were a departure from standard medical practice, (commonly referred to as negligence). Also, because medical malpractice litigation is expensive, the lawsuit itself must be worth enough to cover the costs. In cases of paralysis, paraplegia, and quadriplegia, the damages have already been established, and if it can be established that the provider’s acts or omissions caused your injury and they were negligent, then it is within your legal rights to sue or consider suing the provider. While it may not heal your injury, it may make coping with it easier by compensating for lost income or helping to cover medical bills. If you or a loved-one may be the victim of medical malpractice, it is essential that you consult an attorney as soon as possible. Submit a description of your case here and one of our analysts will be in touch shortly to get you the right legal representation for your case.

How do I find a lawyer who specializes in paralysis, quadriplegia or paraplegia malpractice cases?

Finding the best lawyers can be challenging. Malpractice laws are complex and often require health care professionals to review and testify as expert witnesses to pursue a claim. Justpoint’s goal is to find the best attorney for your specific case and so that we maximize the likelihood of the case succeeding while also maximizing your potential payout. This is true of medical malpractice cases, as well as slip and fall, trucking, and automobile cases that result in catastrophic injuries like permanent paralysis, paraplegia, and quadriplegia.
