Skilled Attorneys Representing Those Who Have Been Paralyzed in Oklahoma

There are few injuries more frightening and potentially debilitating than spinal cord damage and resulting paralysis. The injury lawyers at The Barkett Law Firm have experience representing accident victims with paralysis, and are committed to providing the legal, financial and emotional relief clients and their families need during a stressful and unfamiliar situation.

Types of paralysis

Any physical trauma that damages the spinal cord or nerve pathways in the spinal cord can cause paralysis, which is the loss of strength or mobility in a part or all of the body. Depending on the type and severity of the personal injury, the paralysis may affect different parts of the body, leaving the victim temporarily or permanently paralyzed. Different forms of paralysis caused by spinal cord and head injuries include:

  • Quadriplegia - Quadriplegia, or tetraplegia, occurs when both the legs and arms are paralyzed.
  • Paraplegia - Paraplegia occurs when the trunk, legs and pelvic organs are partially or completely paralyzed.
  • Monoplegia - Monoplegia occurs when one limb is paralyzed.
  • Diplegia - Diplegia occurs when the same region of the body on both sides is paralyzed.
  • Hemiplegia - Hemiplegia occurs when one side of the body is paralyzed.

The type of paralysis a person experiences will contribute to limiting his or her ability to move and function independently. Some individuals will need the permanent assistance of another person or medical equipment, such as wheelchairs, lifts, specially equipped vehicles, feeding tubes and catheters after the injury. Dealing with the dramatic life changes resulting from a catastrophic injury such as paralysis takes a serious toll on both the victim and his or her family members.

At The Barkett Law Firm, our goal is to help clients obtain the compensation they need to cover the costs of living with paralysis arising from auto accidents, falls, industrial accidents, dangerous products, dog bites and medical malpractice. Though money cannot bring back a victim's lost health and happiness, it can be used to meet the expenses of treatment and care and to provide a stable income for family members.
