Paralysis can be caused in a number of ways, such as road traffic accidents, falls from heights or medical negligence. An accident that results in paralysis can be devastating for everyone involved, not just the victim but also family and friends. Paralysis is caused by damage to the nerves and the spinal cord. Paralysis is complicated, it can be temporary or it can be permanent and it can affect the upper part of the body (tetraplegia) or the lower part of the body (paraplegia). Anyone who has suffered paralysis as a result of a third party’s negligence can make a paralysis compensation claim.
Compensation for Paralysis – Personal Injury Claims Leeds
Whilst each case will be determined on its own merits, due to the serious nature of paralysis, the amount of compensation that a claimant can claim can be substantial and could be over a million of pounds. In addition to compensation for the paralysis and the loss of amenity, there will also be a payout for expenses that have been incurred as a result of the paralysis which themselves could be substantial including physiotherapy, care costs, adaptations to the home, medical bills and so on. This compensation will be paid out by the negligent party or more accurately the negligent party’s insurance company.
