Paralysis is the loss of feeling or motor control in an organ or body part. There are a variety of potential causes of paralysis, including genetic conditions and other medical issues. However, a frequent cause of paralysis is a traumatic injury to the head, neck, or back.

When a person sustains a paralysis injury through no fault of their own, they may have a claim for damages against the negligent party. A Columbus paralysis injury lawyer could help review their case and advise them on the strength of their claims. If you believe you have a viable claim following a paralysis injury, contact a seasoned catastrophic injury attorney right away.

What are the Different Types of Paralysis Injuries?

Given the countless ways that a body can sustain injuries, it is impossible to categorize every potential paralysis injury perfectly. However, these injuries each fall into one of four general categories: monoplegia, hemiplegia, paraplegia, and quadriplegia.


The loss of feeling or use of a single body part is known as monoplegia. In most cases, these injuries impact either an arm or a leg. A significant number of monoplegia cases result from medical issues like cerebral palsy. However, injuries involving nerve damage, nerve impingement, brain damage, or motor neuron damage can cause monoplegia.


Hemiplegia is paralysis on one side of the body. Typically, this condition results in numbness and loss of use in the arm and leg on the same side. Hemiplegia often stems from neurological issues and can start with the sensation of pins and needles. Hemiplegia can occur in an accident that includes nerve damage or impingement. In many cases, hemiplegia is temporary with the appropriate medical treatment.


Any form of paralysis from the waist down is known as paraplegia. Paraplegia impacts the legs, hips, and the function of organs below the waist. While most paraplegia injuries result in the inability to walk, some injury victims retain partial use of their legs. In some cases, the severity of the injury can vary from one day to the next.

While there are medical conditions that can lead to paraplegia, neck injuries are the most common cause of this type of paralysis.


Also known as tetraplegia, quadriplegia is a form of paralysis that affects the injury victim from the neck down. Typically, it results in the loss of the use of both the arms and legs. As is the case with paraplegia, neck injuries are the primary cause of this form of paralysis. Quadriplegia is typically permanent, although there have been some cases reversing the damage through surgery.

Is Negotiating a Paralysis Claim with the Insurance Company Simple?

When an injury results in paralysis, the person responsible for that injury could face liability. If the responsible party was covered by an insurance policy at the time of the underlying accident, the insurance carrier could be responsible for covering the damages.

Insurers will work diligently to settle cases early for inadequate settlement amounts. This approach is especially common in paralysis injury cases. While the opposing insurance company may make a settlement offer that covers an injury victim’s emergency room costs, it could fall far short of what is needed for the victim’s future care.

A paralysis injury lawyer in Columbus could negotiate with the insurance company on behalf of the injured victim. An experienced attorney could push back on low-ball offers and demand monetary compensation that will provide for their client’s needs for the rest of their life.
