What Are Common Causes Of Paralysis Injuries?

Some of the common causes of paralysis injuries include:

Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury

A traumatic SCI occurs when the spinal cord is damaged due to external trauma, such as a motor vehicle accident, fall, sports injury, or act of violence. The force of impact can cause fractures, dislocations, or compression of the vertebrae, leading to damage to the spinal cord and subsequent paralysis.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Severe TBIs can damage the brain’s motor centers or disrupt communication pathways between the brain and spinal cord, leading to paralysis or loss of motor function. TBIs commonly result from falls, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, or assaults.

Medical Malpractice

Errors during surgical procedures, such as spinal surgeries or nerve surgeries, can result in nerve damage or complications that lead to paralysis. Negligent medical treatment, anesthesia errors, or delayed diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions can also contribute to paralysis injuries.

Birth Injuries

Birth-related complications, such as oxygen deprivation, traumatic delivery, or improper use of forceps or vacuum extraction during childbirth, can lead to nerve damage or spinal cord injuries in newborns, resulting in paralysis.

I throughly enjoyed working with Erik and the Child & Jackson firm. I was unfortunate enough to be in an automobile accident, him and his team really took care of me and helped me win my case. I am satisfied with all the help and the outcome of the lawsuit. I would definitely work with Child & Jackson if the time comes again. Thank you for everything.

Child & Jackson came highly recommended and did a great job. Unfortunately, after my case settled for coverage maximum, I was in need of their services again. I didn’t even consider going anywhere else. Very caring people.

I was referred to Child & Jackson from a family/friend who had a good experience with them. To my surprise, I actually got to meet and speak with Mr. Child, who was so down to earth (we all know how attorneys can be intimidating). Mr. Child assured me he and his team will take care of me and they kept their words.

Types Of Paralysis

Paralysis injuries can have life-altering effects on individuals, impacting their mobility, independence, and overall quality of life. 
The main types of paralysis injuries include:


Monoplegia refers to paralysis that affects one limb, such as an arm or leg. This type of paralysis usually occurs as a result of damage to a specific nerve or muscle group in the affected limb.


Hemiplegia involves paralysis on one side of the body, affecting both the arm and leg on the same side. It is often associated with conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, or cerebral palsy, which affect one hemisphere of the brain.


Paraplegia is paralysis that affects the lower half of the body, including both legs and possibly the lower trunk. It typically results from spinal cord injuries or trauma to the thoracic or lumbar regions of the spinal cord.


Tetraplegia involves paralysis of all four limbs, as well as the trunk and pelvic organs. This type of paralysis typically occurs due to severe spinal cord injuries to the cervical region of the spinal cord.


Diplegia refers to paralysis that affects symmetrical parts of the body, such as both legs or both arms. It is commonly associated with conditions like cerebral palsy, where the impairment primarily affects specific muscle groups or nerve pathways.


Triplegia involves paralysis in three limbs, usually two legs and one arm or vice versa. It can occur due to various causes, including spinal cord injuries, stroke, or neurological disorders.


Paresis refers to partial paralysis or weakness in one or more muscles or muscle groups. Unlike complete paralysis, individuals with paresis may retain some degree of movement or sensation in the affected areas.

What Types Of Damages Can I Recover After An Accident?

What is the Statute Of Limitations in California?

If you were injured in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another, you will have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit and pursue compensation. If you fail to meet this deadline, your case will be dismissed and you will be barred from pursuing compensation for all accident-related losses. When you hire a paralysis injury lawyer, you can feel confident that your lawsuit will be filed correctly and on time.
