Protecting the rights of South Carolina workers paralyzed on the job
Paraplegia, paralysis below the waist, and quadriplegia, paralysis from the neck down, may result from catastrophic spinal cord injuries. When the spinal cord injury is “complete,” it causes the victim to totally and permanently lose all bodily function, sensation, and movement below the point of the injury. Severe spinal cord damage can have a devastating effect on a person’s life and may prevent them from returning to the workforce in any capacity.
If you were involved in a work-related accident that left you paraplegic or quadriplegic and need compensation, you need an attorney who can ensure that you receive the full benefits to which you are entitled under the laws of South Carolina.
Common causes of paralysis in the workplace
Serious spinal injuries can happen in a variety of ways in the workplace, including but not limited to:
- Falls from ladders, scaffolding and other heights
- Motor vehicle and traffic-related accidents
- Machinery accidents
- Other trauma to the spinal region
