Paralysis Injury Lawyers in Calgary & Edmonton
What is a Paralysis Injury?
Paralysis is loss of the ability to move one or more muscles. It may be associated with loss of feeling and other bodily functions.
It is not usually caused by problems with the muscles themselves, but by problems with the nerves or spinal cord the brain uses to control muscles. A person with paralysis will usually have some form of nerve damage.
Common Causes of Paralysis:
- motor vehicle accidents
- accidents while working
- accidents during sports or other types of activity
Classification of paralysis
Paralysis can be:
- localised – where a specific section of the body is paralysed, such as the face or hand
- generalised – where a larger area of the body is affected
There are also a number of medical terms used to describe different types of paralysis. For example:
- monoplegia – where one limb is paralysed
- hemiplegia – where the arm and leg on one side of the body are paralysed
- paraplegia – where both legs and sometimes the pelvis and some of the lower body are paralysed
- tetraplegia – where both the arms and legs are paralysed (also known as quadriplegia)
