Paralysis: The Difference Between Complete and Incomplete

If you suffer paralysis, it can create a significant impact on your life. Paralysis can be diagnosed as either complete or incomplete. While any paralysis is difficult to endure, there are situations where the damages you experience are less severe. Below, we’ll detail the differences between complete and incomplete paralysis.

What Is Complete Paralysis?

When you suffer from complete paralysis, you lose complete function of your affected body parts. For instance, if you suffer from paraplegia, it can impact your lower limbs. Complete paraplegia would mean you would have no feeling or movement in your lower limbs.

Complete paralysis of any kind can be challenging to endure. Losing complete functionality of any body part can impact your ability to complete any task, and it’s crucial to pursue maximum compensation for the damages you sustain.

What Is Incomplete Paralysis?

When you suffer incomplete paralysis, you may be able to control some portion of your functionality in your affected limbs. For instance, you may be unable to move your arm, but you can maintain minimal finger movement. Your injury may still impact your control, and you may not have a full range of motion, but partial functionality is still possible.

In these cases, there are some things that you may be able to do on your own. However, these are still serious and catastrophic injuries, and you must protect your rights moving forward.

No matter what type of paralysis you sustain, it’s crucial to have the right legal team on your side to pursue compensation. If someone else caused your harm because of negligence, you may hold them accountable for their actions.
