Quadriplegia, also known as tetraplegia, is a symptom in which a person experiences paralysis affecting all four limbs, although not necessarily in totality. In other words, an individual may be rendered “incomplete quadriplegic” which means they may not have lost total function with respect to any or all of the extremities. Quadriplegia is caused by damage to the brain or the spinal cord at a high level. The spinal cord cases typically arise as a severe trauma to the cervical spine. Trauma due to auto accidents, gunshot wounds, falls or sports injuries are typical causes of quadriplegia.
It is possible to suffer a broken neck without being rendered quadriplegic, e.g. when vertebrae are fractured or dislocated but the spinal cord is not damaged. Conversely, it is possible to sustain spinal cord injury without breaking the spine, e.g. when a herniated or ruptured disk on the vertebrae intrudes into the spinal column
One of the challenges of a Quadriplegia Injury claim is that you may need extended hospitalization, surgeries, and physical therapy before you attain your maximum physical recovery.
Vaughan Law Group’s Orlando Quadriplegia Injury attorneys work with your medical and rehabilitation experts, and certified life care planners to document the full extent of the damages you have suffered.
