Understanding Quadriplegia

Experienced Dallas Injury Lawyer

Quadriplegia is the paralysis of a person that includes their arms and legs. It greatly limits them and can make them reliant on others around them to care for even their most basic needs. It is one of the most devastating injuries that can be experienced and in many cases it could have been prevented if the responsible party had exercised caution. In addition to the limitations that are experienced, victims can deal with intense pain, as well as continual medical expenses. The cost of medical care is often ongoing and they may continually need different forms of treatment or assistance throughout their life. They are often no longer able to work, leaving them without a source of income and without the ability to feel competent in a job that they enjoy. One of the largest influences that many quadriplegics deal with is the feeling of a decreased ability to enjoy and participate in their lives.

Effects on Victims

While the main physical effects include limitations of the arms and legs, quadriplegics deal with even more issues. Being unable to feel or move their limbs can lead to them injuring them further. They can also experience trouble in their abdominal muscles, chest muscles, lungs and other internal organs. Many injured people deal with muscle spasms, bladder and bowel impairment, trouble breathing and reduced sexual functions. The medical complications that they experience can often lead to them living shorter periods.

How can I pursue compensation?

If negligence or recklessness was the reason that you or a loved one experienced this type of injury then you may be eligible to receive compensation for the below areas:

  • Rehabilitative treatment
  • Initial and following hospital visits
  • Future medical expenses
  • Modifications for the home or vehicle
  • Lost income
  • The need for a permanent healthcare provider
  • Pain and suffering
  • A reduced level of enjoyment in life

Our Dallas personal injury attorneys have years of experience working with clients who have suffered severe and catastrophic injuries. We are able to consider all aspects of your injury and calculate the amount of compensation you deserve, an amount that is far more than you will likely be offered by insurance companies.
