Medical Malpractice Attorneys Handling Paralysis Cases In Prince George's County, Anne Arundel County, Charles County, Baltimore, and in the Maryland, Washington, DC, Metro area.


Paralysis is a catastrophic injury that can devastate the lives of the victim and his or her loved ones. This life-altering circumstance is caused by damage to the spinal cord, which can happen with or without a broken spine or broken vertebrae. The spine can be damaged by blunt force, tumors, stroke, lack of blood, or certain diseases. Unfortunately, once damaged, spinal tissue cannot grow back, and lost functions almost always remain lost.

Some serious accidents that can cause paralysis are as follows:

  • Medical malpractice and birth injuries

  • Negligence at a nursing home or other long-term care facility

  • Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents

  • Workplace and construction accidents

  • Trips or falls



After a paralyzing accident, victims need extensive and ongoing medical treatment. Their ability to work may be affected and in some cases, victims may need help with everyday tasks they once could accomplish on their own. These losses aren’t just physical, but also emotional and monetary.  If you or a loved one was paralyzed in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have the right to compensation.
