New York Impaired Sexual Function Injury Attorney
Impaired sexual function is when an individual or couple has difficulty during normal sexual activity. It can be referred to as erectile dysfunction, painful intercourse (in women), or lack of arousal or orgasm. This condition is often related to other injuries such as damage to the back, brain, spinal cord, or nerves, in addition to certain physical and psychological illnesses. At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, we will do everything we can to help get the maximum recovery for those who experience impaired sexual function as the result of an accident. We can even come to you at your home, hospital or on the job. If you don’t have a doctor to treat you for your injury, we may well be able to find doctors that can treat you without you paying them until the end of the case, and we can keep insurance adjusters from calling you.
We understand that sexual identity is an important part of who you are, and that any alteration or impairment can be devastating. Nerve and spinal cord injuries that result in complete paralysis have the most visible effects on men because this condition can largely prevent erection and the males’ ability to father children the traditional way. They must undergo painful and expensive surgery instead. This can cause severe depression and anxiety about their role in relationships, leading to many years of psychotherapy.
Paralyzed women generally fair a little better as they can have an easier time adapting to their new role and they are usually still able to bare children. But most who suffer from complete paralysis are not able to orgasm, thus taking away one of the most important elements of sexual activity. What is more likely to affect women is the mental and emotional trauma that ensues after the traumatic event itself. Depression, anxiety and negative association are all likely effects and can require years of psychological and sexual therapy.
These severe changes can cause negative ripples throughout your life and we believe you should be compensated for this. Everyone deserves to be a part of a loving and mutually beneficial relationship, and if your injury prevents this from happening, we will do everything we can to help you recover damages that include expenses for medical procedures, therapy, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium, among others.
You are not alone. We will do everything we can to help you get the resources to pay for the treatment you need, so that you can move on with your life.
