Paraplegia

San Jose Paraplegia Injury Attorneys

After a serious accident that results in paraplegia, the accident victim and his or her family are left with a lifetime of loss and difficulty. Even in cases where recovery is possible and the spinal cord has not been severely damaged, coping with paralysis requires extensive and costly medical treatment and rehabilitation. Paraplegia victims and their families deserve to be compensated for these present and future damages.

At the San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye & Fitting, we understand how serious these injuries can be for our clients and work hard to pursue the maximum benefits that they need. With more than 75 years of experience in personal injury cases, we have the knowledge to talk with you about your options for recovery and fight for compensation from those who caused your injuries.

San Mateo Paraplegia Attorneys

Paraplegia is caused by an injury to the spinal cord that occurs below the base of the neck. When the spine below the thoracic vertebra receives trauma, it can result in partial or total paralysis of the legs. Symptoms of paraplegia may include:

  • Sensory loss
  • Loss of motor function
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Loss of bladder and bowel control

Depending on the amount of damage, the paralysis may be partial or total and treatment may include surgery or bed rest. If serious damage has occurred, however, a full recovery may not be possible and rehabilitation will focus on helping the victim cope with the condition.

He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally. Jerry
