Paraplegic Injuries Lawyers & Attorneys
A paraplegic is someone with impairment in function of the lower extremities. A quadriplegic is someone with impairment in function of all extremities. These conditions are usually the result of a spinal cord injury (SCI).
We have proven experience acting for people who have suffered paraplegic injuries. People with SCI often require a high level of care for the rest of their life. Our role as paraplegic injury lawyers & attorneys is to attempt to recover adequate retribution for these injuries. Retribution may include damages for pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life as well as home and vehicle modifications, future care costs and other economic losses.
Paraplegic Injuries can result in a loss of mobility or function. Back and neck injuries can either be a complete injury, where a person has no feeling, function or sensation below the level of the injury, or the injury can be an incomplete injury. An incomplete injury usually features some compression of or injury to the spinal cord and can result in:
- a loss of bowel and bladder control
- problems sensing heat or cold
- a pins and needles sensation in the arms or legs or
- a loss of function in the torso, hands, feet, arms or legs
