Paraplegia is a term used to describe the involuntary loss of use of a person's lower extremities. Similar to quadriplegia, paraplegia generally refers to an individual who is paralyzed below the waist. An injury of the sort can result from various traumatic events like an automobile accident. Another possible cause of paraplegia that remains is medical malpractice. Regardless of a paraplegic-inducing incident's cause, it is essential to determine whether or not the occurrence was the direct result of another's negligence. If so, then it is possible to recover compensatory damages.

Those who have been injured through the negligence of another are entitled to compensation. General compensation in a negligence case is made up of monetary and non-economic damages.
Monetary damages can be meaningful in a paraplegia case in that monetary damages generally consist of past and future medical treatment and medical bills. Likewise, suppose a person with paraplegia requires any other objective modifications of their home or additional assistance due to the medical condition. In that case, these expenses can be incorporated into the demand for economic damages.
Likewise, expert witnesses can infer future monetary damages. These witnesses could include a life-care planner, medical professional, economist, or others. A Cochran Firm personal injury attorney will know how to adequately integrate expert witnesses into the courtroom for your case to maximize their effectiveness.
Anyone who has been injured due to another's negligence is also entitled to non-economic damages. These damages typically establish more subjective complaints of suffering, pain, and inconvenience. Anyone who has been rendered a person with paraplegia due to the negligence of another individual may have a serious claim for non-economic damages based upon the life-changing injury they have sustained.
