Paraplegia is a condition that causes a person to lose the willful control of the lower extremities. Paraplegia is generally caused by a spinal cord injury to the mid or lower back. Outside of pathological or congenital conditions, paraplegia is most commonly caused by a fall or a trauma to the back resulting from causes such as automobile accidents, industrial accidents, offshore injuries, and other traumatic accidents that damage the spinal column in the mid or lower back.

Initial treatment of paraplegia is to prevent further injury to the spine by strapping the injured person to a special board. Surgery is usually required to return the spine to its proper shape. The recovery process will include physical rehabilitation to regain mobility and medications to prevent muscle spasms.
Paraplegia is currently irreversible, so treatment focuses on treating the complications of the condition. Due to the decrease in mobility, people who are paraplegic have an increased susceptibility to certain medical conditions, including thrombosis, bed sores and pneumonia. These conditions can be managed with proper medical and self care, so it is very important for paraplegics to receive ongoing medical attention. We understand that the immediate goals for a person suffering from paraplegia are to get medical bills paid, minimize financial burdens on the individual and the family, and assure that the appropriate insurance company pays for future treatment.
