A paralyzing injury has profound effects, both on the accident victim and that person’s family. For the injured person, it means being confined to a wheelchair and dealing with the practical aspects of limited mobility. Paralysis or paraplegia can also affect the victim’s health in other ways. He or she may experience breathing difficulties, bowel problems, depression or other problems. Family members suffer, too, when the family loses the income that the injured person provided. In addition, they often must provide care for their loved one in the home.
