Forms and Causes of Paralysis

The spinal cord is how the brain communicates with the body. If this connection is interrupted or broken, paralysis sets in and affects your ability to move. Paralysis can look like:

  • Facial Paralysis
  • Quadriplegia
  • Hemiplegia
  • Paraplegia

Medical causes of paralysis might include labor and delivery errors resulting in birth injuries, failure to diagnose a medical condition, chiropractic errors, or errors during spinal or back surgery. Failure to diagnose a medical condition that results in paralysis can qualify as negligence by the attending physician, as can a mistake during a surgical procedure.

Dearborn’s personal injury lawyers can help you file a lawsuit against a negligent medical professional and seek compensation for your suffering.

Proving Medical Negligence In Michigan

To get any amount of compensation from your lawsuit, your lawyer must prove:

  • The negligent acts that took place
  • That the negligence resulted in your paralysis injury

Negligent acts can include physicians taking short-cuts, misdiagnosis, disregarding a patient’s symptoms, or carelessness with lab materials. It can include a doctor failing to supervise their staff. Proving that a medical professional is liable for an injury requires expert testimony and access to medical records documenting your condition.
