Quick Facts about Paraplegia

Paraplegia is associated with damage to the lumbar and sacral regions of the spine, which range from around the top of the waist to the tailbone (coccyx). It may involve partial loss of sensation and function, total loss of one, or total loss of both. The symptoms will depend on whether the damage to the spinal cord was complete (nerves completely severed) or incomplete (nerves partially damaged).

The most common causes of all spinal cord injuries, including those resulting in paraplegia, include:

Paraplegia can require long and costly hospital stays, multiple treatments, reduced earning capacity, and reduced quality of life. Our Tampa paraplegia injury attorneys will seek fair compensation for such losses with aggression and commitment.
