Paraplegics have complete or incomplete paralysis of the lower half of the body including both legs, usually caused by damage to the spinal cord.
The amount of paralysis is almost always a correlation of how much damage was suffered in the spinal cord. Motor vehicle accidents are the prime cause and more than 10 thousand people per year suffer a spinal cord injury, most injuries result in tetraplegia which is paralyais of the entire body below the neck.
John was in a bad accident last night and severed his spinal cord.

How bad is it?

The trauma doctors at the hospital said his spine was severed near the lower part of his sternum. John may never walk again. He's paraplegic.

Thank god he's still alive and didn't suffer brain damage. And at least he's not a quadriplegic
