NY Paralyzed Injury
In the United States today one out of every fifty persons is living with paralysis. Our NY Paralyzed Injury Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis and Associates knows and understands this fact. We also understand that many paralyzed victims are suffering due to the irresponsibility of another person. If you or a loved one are suffering from the results of paralysis, our dedicated NY Paralyzed Injury Lawyer staff at Stephen Bilkis and Associates is here to help you.
Quadriplegia and paraplegia are possibly the most well known types of paralysis, however, our NY Paralyzed Injury Lawyer group at Stephen Bilkis and Associates also knows that there are other forms of paralysis. For example, Hemiplegia is paralysis on one side of the body, Erb’s palsy involves paralysis of the arms, and Bell’s palsy involves paralysis of the face. In any case, paralysis occurs when the nerves linking from the brain to the paralyzed body part are severed or damaged, generally through a spinal cord injury accident.
There are countless ways, however, in which a person can become paralyzed. The most common causes of paralysis are due to spinal cord injury. Here are some ways a spinal cord can be damaged to the point of paralysis:
Traumatic brain injury from any of these listed accidents, as well as strokes, can also lead to paralysis. Other forms of paralysis can be caused by birth injury. Paralysis, such as Erb’s Palsy, can be due to a difficult birth where a baby’s arm suffers paralysis caused by damaging the nerves linking the arm to the shoulder. Other causes of paralysis can include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Disease or Illness
- Work-related accidents
If you or a loved one have been injured in a work-related accident, our skilled NY Paralyzed Injury Lawyer staff at Stephen Bilkis and Associates can assess whether or not your employer may be responsible for your injury.
