Most often paralysis occurs after a stroke, head or spinal cord injury, or broken neck.  It is defined as the loss of one or more muscle function and can be accompanied by sensory loss. When paralysis occurs in just the lower half of the body, it is called paraplegia.  Quadriplegia is when the paralysis occurs in both the arms and legs.

The emotional impact of paralysis can be both overwhelming and devastating.  Depression and feelings of helplessness are often significant secondary complications of paralysis affecting both the victim and their loved ones.

Common causes of compensable paralysis are car accidents, slip and falls and sports injuries.  Paralysis is one of the worst injuries a victim can suffer, even if the paralysis is temporary.
