Paralysis in any form is beyond life altering. Depending on the severity, the victim of paralysis will likely need lifetime full time attendant care and specialized medical care and physical therapy for life. These basic needs are often dwarfed by the severe loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life and mental anguish the victim of paralysis will experience for the remainder of their life.
