Suffering from paralysis or a traumatic brain injury after an accident can be devastating and disorienting. Quadriplegia, paraplegia, and hemiplegia are forms of paralysis that may negatively affect your ability to live independently. While paralysis and brain injuries can result from disease or medical complications, these conditions often occur as a result of traumatic accidents. Traumatic brain injuries can cause paralysis and limited motor and cognitive abilities.
Paralysis and traumatic brain injuries are some of the most expensive and overwhelming conditions to treat. In many cases, the injured person needs significant medical care, physical therapy, or home health aides who assist in daily activities. If paralysis or a traumatic brain injury is preventing you from working, you are likely worried about providing for yourself and your family.

What Causes Paralysis?
A spinal cord injury can cause paralysis. Damage to any part of the spinal cord can cause permanent changes in function, strength, and sensation in the body. The severity of a person’s paralysis is either complete or incomplete. Complete paralysis occurs when a person loses all feeling and ability to control movement below the area of the spinal cord injury. Incomplete paralysis occurs when a person has some sensory function or feeling below the affected area of the spinal cord injury. The location of your spinal cord injury will determine which area of your body is affected.
- Tetraplegia or quadriplegia indicates that a person’s legs, trunk, hands, arms, and pelvic organs are all impaired due to a spinal cord injury
- Paraplegia suggests that all or part of the chest, legs, and pelvic organs are affected by the spinal cord injury.
A traumatic spinal cord injury often occurs when the spine suffers a severe blow. When the blow crushes, compresses, fractures, or dislocates one of the spinal vertebrates, ligaments, or the spinal cord itself, injuries result. While disease and medical conditions can cause paralysis, typically, paralysis is often caused by accidents that damage the spinal cord, such as:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Gunshot injury
- Knife wound
- Truck accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Sports injuries
- Train and subway accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Swimming and diving accidents
- Brain injuries

Traumatic Brain Injury Causes
Traumatic brain injuries can result in some of the same symptoms and challenges as paralysis. Traumatic brain injuries can cause paralysis. Traumatic brain injuries typically result from a violent blow to someone’s body or head. Or, an object can penetrate the skull and cause a traumatic brain injury. Severe traumatic brain injuries can cause brain bleeding, torn brain tissue, and bruising. In extremely severe cases, death or long-term disability can result from traumatic brain injuries. Car accidents, gunshot wounds, domestic violence, and workplace accidents can create the force necessary to cause a traumatic brain injury.

The degree and severity of traumatic brain injuries vary, and each individual will have a unique set of symptoms and challenges, such as:
- Coma or unconsciousness
