wheelchairCauses and Results of Lower Body Paralysis

Spinal cord injuries are wide-ranging but universally serious in nature.  The most common cause of spinal cord injuries that result in paralysis are accidents.  Paraplegia is more common among older people and therefore accidents such as falls can lead to a large number of lawsuits.  When lower body paralysis occurs, there is always some level of loss of function and motion.  The extent of loss of motion is determined by the degree and location of the injury.
