New York Sexual Function Impairment Lawyer
Alteration of sexual function is when an individual or couple has difficulties during normal sexual activity. It can be referred to as erectile dysfunction, painful sexual intercourse (in women), or lack of arousal or orgasm. This condition is related to other injuries such as damage to the back, brain, spinal cord or nerves, in addition to certain physical and psychological diseases. At the law office of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, we do everything we can to help achieve maximum recovery for those who experience impaired sexual function as the result of an accident. We can even visit you at your home, hospital or work.
We understand that sexual identity is an important part of who you are, and that any alteration or deterioration can be devastating. Injuries to the nerves and spinal cord that result in complete paralysis have the most visible effects in men, because this condition can greatly prevent the erection and ability of males to have children in the traditional way. They must undergo painful and costly surgery instead. This can cause severe depression and anxiety about their part in relationships, leading to many years of psychotherapy.
Women with general paralysis, just a little better, because they may have an easier time to adapt to their new part and are usually still able to strip children. But the more they suffer from complete paralysis they are not able to achieve orgasm, thus eliminating one of the most important elements of sexual activity. What is most likely to affect women is the mental and emotional trauma that occurs after the traumatic event itself. Depression, anxiety and negative association are all likely effects and may require years of psychological and sexual therapy.
These changes can cause severe negative waves throughout your life and we believe that you should be compensated for this. Everyone has the right to be part of a relationship of love and mutual benefit, and if your injury prevents you from doing so, we will do everything possible to help recover the damages that include the costs of medical procedures, therapy, pain and the suffering, and the loss of consortium, among others.
You’re not alone. We will do our best to help you get the resources to pay for the treatment you need, so you can move on with your life.
