Paraplegia Compensation Claims Information
If you have become paraplegic as the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Paraplegia is referred to as an impairment in sensory function especially in the lower extremities. This condition is often caused by a spinal cord injury or congenital condition like spina bifida, which affects the spinal canal’s neural elements. Some of the areas of the spinal canal, which is mostly affected in the paraplegia are thoracic, lumbar, and sacral regions. For paraplegia compensation claims from a company you can trust, choose Tylers Solicitors.
