We Can Help You Regardless of Your Specific Paralysis Injury
According to Cleveland Clinic, paralysis results when any part of the neurologic relay system suffers damage. When the brain, nerves, or spinal cord suffers damage, the signals instructing muscles to move are blocked, resulting in paralysis.
There are several types and degrees of paralysis, including:
Paralysis can result due to an accident involving a spinal cord injury or brain injury. The inability to move certain muscles can have a devastating impact on your ability to walk or to engage in your favorite activities. The most common causes of paralyzing injuries from trauma include the following:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Construction or work site incidents
- Recreational injuries
- Nursing home negligence
- Medical malpractice
If you experienced an injury that left you with paralysis and your injury is due to the negligent actions of another person, you have the right to demand fair and just financial compensation. A New York paralysis lawyer can determine those liable and pursue damages on your behalf.
When you retain us to work for you, you will not be required to pay us any money upfront. At Dansker & Aspromonte Associates, we only collect a legal fee if you receive compensation. Call us now for a free case evaluation: (212) 732-2929.
Possible Damages You Could Recover
Depending upon the severity of your paralysis injury, you may face a lifetime of disability and financial costs. These costs can easily reach into the millions of dollars as medical treatment, rehabilitation, therapy, equipment for mobility, and other household modifications are necessitated.
Recovering damages for your paralysis is important for your comfort and future medical needs. The following types of damages are among possible in personal injury cases:
- Pain and suffering for all physical and emotional injuries (the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation discusses how mental health can be difficult for newly paralyzed individuals)
- Future pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life
- Continuous medical costs for rehabilitation, therapies, and prescription
- Medical costs for all past, ongoing and future medical treatment
- Loss of income in the past and future
- Diminished earning capacity
- Medical equipment for mobility and household accommodation
- Any other out of pocket expenses necessitated by your injuries
After a thorough review of all of your injuries and their effect on your daily routine, we will discuss a possible settlement with the other side. If the other side does not offer what we both agree is a fair and reasonable sum, we prepare every case for trial.
Our primary goal is to secure the best possible outcome for you. Each case we represent is unique. The outcome of your case depends upon the details specific to your accident.
What to Do if You Have Not Done So Already
The time immediately following your incident must be handled carefully. You may not know the full extent of your injuries at the accident scene or know what to do. Follow this basis advice if possible:
- Call the police
- Ask that an incident or accident report be completed
- Try to record the names and contact information of any witnesses
- Take photographs or have others take photographs of the scene and your injuries
- Inquire if there is any video footage of your accident
- Refrain from giving any statements to representatives of the at fault party until you speak to a lawyer
- Obtain immediate medical attention
- Follow all medical advice
- Retain all receipts and papers from your medical treatment
- Do not post any references to your accident or injuries on social media, including photographs
Do not speak to the at fault party’s insurance company before you speak to a lawyer. Their goal is to protect their own best interests—not yours by obtaining a statement from you about how the accident occurred or offering you a quick settlement. Both of these actions can harm your right to fair and reasonable compensation. A statement they obtain can lock you into an inaccurate or uninformed version of the accident that diminishes their responsibility. A “quick settlement” can seem fair to you in the moment but fails to fully reflect the full nature or permanency of your injuries.
You do not have to deal with the insurance company alone. We will handle the details of the claim while you can focus on your day to day recovery.

To start a claim against the at fault party, we must review your case as soon as possible after your incident. This is imperative for 2 main reasons. First, a quick investigation is crucial since evidence such as the condition that caused the accident, witnesses, documents, 911 tapes, or video footage may only be available for a short period of time. Second, time is of the essence in beginning a personal injury claim. Each case has a time limitation. If you fail to bring your claim within the deadline, you may be forever barred from receiving the compensation you would otherwise deserve.
