New York Paraplegia Attorneys

Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers in New York City

Paraplegia—a spinal cord injury that results in the complete paralysis of the lower body—is one of the most devastating and unfortunate types of catastrophic injuries that an accident victim can sustain. Sadly, approximately 2,500 people are diagnosed with paraplegia every year in the United States. Many of those cases occur as a direct result of someone else's careless, negligent, or reckless behavior.

Victims of catastrophic injuries like paraplegia may be entitled to recover compensation to help cover the cost of medical treatment as well as other financial and emotional losses. If you or a loved one has suffered paraplegia after an accident, we can help you. Please contact Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP today for a complimentary consultation with a proven and respected New York paraplegia lawyer.

Paraplegia: Causes & Consequences

Auto accidents represent the leading cause of paraplegia in the U.S., accounting for approximately 44% of all cases. Slip and fall accidents are also a major leading cause of paraplegia and account for 18% of all cases. Other common causes of the condition include, but are not limited to:

Those who suffer from paraplegia often require lifelong medical treatment, including surgeries, medication, physical therapy, and more. The costs associated with caring for this condition are astronomical and may exceed more than one million over the course of a person's lifetime.

However, the consequences associated with paraplegia are more than just physical and financial. Individuals with the condition and their families also frequently suffer severe psychological and emotional effects. With the right navigation, your injury suit can account for these effects, as well, and ensure that the full impact of your injury is put forth before the law.
