Types of Paralysis

The team at Pope and Howard has tried a variety of personal injury cases involving paralysis. Paralysis can be permanent or temporary, or involve the muscles in different ways. Here are some major types of paralysis:

Partial Paralysis

Partial paralysis is when you have some ability to control your muscles.

Complete Paralysis

If you are in a state of complete paralysis, you have no control over your muscles.

Flaccid Paralysis

Another type of paralysis is flaccid paralysis, where your muscles end up shrinking and can become filled with fatty tissue.

Spastic Paralysis

A fourth type is spastic paralysis, where the control is limited and the muscles are tight and jerk around, causing spasms.

Causes of Paralysis in Personal Injury Cases

The most common causes of paralysis are stroke, spinal cord injury, and head injury. Other causes could be birth defects such as spina bifida or cerebral palsy. Paralysis can also be caused by various diseases like ALS or Multiple Sclerosis. Less common causes are things like infection that can lead to spinal cord and head injuries or toxins and poisons.
