Indianapolis Paralysis & Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
Paralysis is one of the most devastating injuries that can happen to a person. Often, these injuries leave victims incapacitated, and requiring assistance for the rest of their lives. Paralysis is defined as the loss of muscle use in an individual’s body, and occurs when the brain is no longer able to communicate with the muscles, and is often thought of as a spinal cord injury. The spinal cord is the collection of nerves that extend down from the brain and located inside and protected inside the spinal column, or vertebra. When the spinal cord is damaged, the results can be either temporary, or in the case of paralysis, permanent.
Paralysis injuries can involve paraplegia, quadriplegia, tetraplegia, drop foot, cauda equina syndrome and all types of spinal cord injuries. These injuries can come from health or medical conditions such as strokes or polio, auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, sports, and workplace accidents.
When the lawyers at Wagner Reese take on a personal injury case involving paralysis, they understand the unexpected difficulties that individuals and their families are facing, and understand why victims need lawyers that fight for the victims to receive the compensation they deserve, to have the care they require, looking far into the future and planning for that care through the remainder of their life.
Wagner Reese’s job as personal injury lawyers, is to think about the short-term and the long-term needs of clients. Most clients will need compensation to recover from the cost of the accident they suffered, cover the medical bills they have accumulated, and allow for the cost of living expenses they may have while out of work. Wagner Reese works hard for clients to develop a Life Care Plan to assess the future costs of their livelihood as well, ensuring they and their families will be well cared for, in spite of the injury.

A Note About Recovery Limits
In 2012, Indiana put a compensation cap on non-economic based damages. For personal injury cases in the state of Indiana, any case paid by the government may not exceed an award of $5,000,000. The Indiana Supreme Court is currently contesting this cap as unconstitutional, so these limits may soon be abolished.
