Paralysis can be a temporary or permanent loss of motor or sensory functions following, but not limited to, an injury to the nerves, spinal column, or brain. Spinal injuries can include a broken neck, as well as fractures and dislocations of the vertebra. Such fractures can be the result of falls, automobile accidents, negligent acts of others, and even work-related injuries. These fractures may cause paralysis in one or more parts of the body and lead to extremely serious and sometimes permanent consequences.
In a lawsuit Mr. Achrem handled in which his client’s neck was broken in a construction zone due to driver and contractor negligence, he was able to obtain an extremely large and confidential damage award for the young man, who was then able to use a portion of the settlement funds to aid in his recovery. He is now a successful business owner with a promising future.
