Omaha Car Accident Paralysis Injury Attorneys
Many injuries can come from a car crash. But severe accidents that damage spinal cords, shred nerves, and inflict major trauma to the nervous system can easily result in paralysis for a victim. Thousands of car accidents happen in Nebraska every year, and while the most severe crashes are most likely to cause paralysis, victims are unfortunately subject to serious hazards in any crash that could cause paralyzing injuries.
Pedestrians hit by speeding cars in the busy streets of Omaha, car collisions on the busy roads of Interstate 80, and single vehicle accidents caused by defective auto parts on the quiet rural roads of Nebraska's plains can all result in paralyzing injuries. Nebraska laws allow those who have been injured in crashes caused by another party to pursue compensation for their physical and financial damages.
Through a no-cost consultation with the Omaha catastrophic injury lawyers at Cullan & Cullan LLC, at (402) 397-7600, you can fully understand state laws relevant to your accident. Knowing your rights and what you can do to preserve them is one of the most important steps to recovery and a successful search for compensation. Our legal team has years of experience and our attorneys are also physicians, providing us insight into paralysis to properly understand what you need for your injuries.
Pursuing Compensation for Losses in Nebraska
Nebraska law allows those who have been injured by another party, such as a driver or manufacturer of a defective auto part, to pursue financial compensation for all losses suffered. By proving that the at-fault party was the cause of the accident and that the injuries being claimed came from that accident, a victim can receive payment for their damages from the responsible party's insurance provider. Past and future medical care can be paid for, but proper evidence and testimony must be used while negotiating with insurance representatives, or in a court case if necessary. Only through skilled legal representation can a successful case be created in order to aid paralyzed victims.
Coping with Paralysis
Paralysis is a loss of muscle function in any part of the body that occurs when the nerve paths between the brain and body part are damaged. This paralysis can be classified as complete (a total loss of function in the affected areas) or partial (difficulty in moving or feeling in the affected areas) and may affect only one part of the body or everything below the site of the injury. Most often, paralysis is due to a spinal cord injury, but trauma to peripheral nerves can also cause major paralysis.
Victims of paralysis require serious medical attention immediately after their injury in order to fully understand their damages and ensure that the trauma does not worsen or become potentially fatal. Through surgeries, rehabilitation, and various medical care, a victim may be able to fully recover from the damage; however, most often, a victim will have to learn how to cope with permanent losses. Through learning how to physically and emotionally deal with paralysis, a victim can reshape his or her daily life to accommodate for paralysis and have a fulfilling life.
But the cost of emergency medical care, rehabilitation, continued medical services, and a possible inability to work can leave a victim in major financial trouble.
