Quadriplegia is an injury to the spinal cord that results in paralysis of both the arms and legs of the injured individual. Most often quadriplegia is the result of an accident. If the cause of your paralysis or the paralysis of a loved one is to any extent due to the negligence of an individual, our team of attorneys is ready to fight for you to gain compensation for the injuries you sustained.
It is the responsibility of an insurance company to provide adequate compensation for your injury, associated economic losses and the long-term costs to provide adequate care for the injuries sustained. Our team of legal experts work tirelessly to get you maximum compensation and to insure that the insurance providers of the responsible party or parties uphold their financial obligations to you.
Your spinal cord is divided into four sections – cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral. At the top of your spinal cord, in your nechk is the cervical area. The nerves in this area control the head/neck, diaphragm, biceps, deltoids, wrist, triceps and hands. If the C1 – C3 are damaged, the result may be quadriplegia, a complete paralysis of arms, body and legs. Due to the location of the injury, a number of critical body functions are compromised, including the respiratory system, bladder and sexual functions and a person’s ability to communicate without assistance.
