In certain tragic medical errors, the innocent victim can suffer from paralysis. When this occurs, a medical malpractice lawyer should be consulted to discuss the rights of the patient. Tremendous stress is placed on a family financially in caring for a paralyzed family member, and it often impacts the ability to work, due to the need for full time care. If medical malpractice or medical negligence was the cause of the paralysis it may be possible to sue for financial compensation.
This compensation can help to ease the burden of daily home care as well as the associated medical costs. It can also serve to remedy some of the pain and suffering of the patient.
