According to the Christopher Reeve Foundation, started by Superman actor Christopher Reeve and his wife Dana after he was paralyzed following a horseback riding accident, in the United States:

  • Approximately 5.4 million or 1 in 5 people are living with paralysis.
  • Stroke is the leading cause of paralysis (34%) with spinal cord injury (27%) and multiple sclerosis (19%) as the second and third leading causes.
  • Only 16% of people who suffer from paralysis are employed versus 63% who are not living with a disability.
  • Nearly 42% of individuals living with paralysis attest that they are unable to work.

Paralysis Affects Every Aspect of Your Life
Paralysis—the loss of muscle function and often, sensation in a part of your body—is one of the most devastating human conditions. Often occurring as the result of a negligent act (e.g. car accident, spinal cord injury (SCI), traumatic brain injury (TBI) or sports injury), paralysis can be an overwhelming, life-changing event. Not only is the paralyzed individual’s life forever changed, but the family is severely impacted as well. Every aspect of one’s life, from the ability to make a living, to interacting with others and performing daily activities and routines is forever changed.

VSCP LAW Will Fight for the Compensation You Deserve
If your loved one is suffering from paraplegia (paralysis of the lower half of the body) or quadriplegia (paralysis of the arms and legs), their paralyzing injury event is only the beginning. Unfortunately, paralyzed individuals often face complications as a result of their condition, meaning that medical costs have the potential to be both overwhelming and ongoing. Compound that with a potential loss of income, additional costs associated with remodeling a home to be more accessible, and the costs associated with specialized equipment and therapies, and it’s easy to see how a paralysis event can also be financially devastating.
