Quadriplegia: victims seeking legal help

Personal injury RSS Feed

Don't stay forever pitying a relative, friend or acquaintance who suffers from quadriplegia, a form of spinal cord injury. They are one of the 10,000 Americans who suffer from spinal cord injuries and permanent paralysis in their arms or legs, every year.

When an injury occurs to the spinal cord is occurs, the cord is not typically cut but the thin fibrous extensions of nerve cells surrounded by the vertebrae are crushed and damaged. Pathways of the nerve cells, called axons, in the cord are disrupted once an injury to the cord occurs and a person loses sensation and control over critical body functions.

Quadriplegia (also called Tetraplegia) is a person with a spinal cord injury near the top of the spine (between C1 to T1). It refers to the loss of sensation and mobility in both the upper and lower body. Spastic quadriplegia arises when all four limbs are affected with increased tone, decreased movements and brisk reflexes. It often is associated with mental retardation, visual problems and hearing impairment. Either this is the result of illness or intentional wrong, or negligent act by some other liable person that inflicted the spinal cord injury.

You can stop feeling sorry for sufferers you know and start helping them out in taking legal action for their condition. Persons who suffered spinal cord injury, particularly quadriplegia should get legal evaluation immediately after the accident. Legal consultation from attorneys is critical because victims need to find out the help that they are entitled to. Even accidents that result to quadriplegia that appears to be no one's fault could still result in a recovery since the injuries are so severe. Damage claims will often exceed the amount of available insurance coverage.

Negligent acts that result to quadriplegia have the right to seek legal assistance to help defray medical bills, compensate for pain and suffering and provide for future lost income. You can assist them into finding an experienced personal injury lawyer practicing spinal cord injury lawsuits. Quadriplegia victims need intelligent and investigative attorneys who will find all coverage are able to devise theories to involve other parties potentially at fault for the injury.

In many of these cases, insurance companies and negligent parties can provide substantial compensation to the victims of these injuries. On the other hand, if the available insurance coverage is adequate enough, say like a million dollar policy is involved the company will have reason to fight the claims. This they will do to avoid paying large sums to the injured person and in this instance, victim's attorney need to be an experienced trial lawyer, too.

Like other personal injury cases, time is critical, as time goes on, victims may lose some of their rights. Thus, it will greatly help the success of a spinal cord injury lawsuit to begin evidence collection and take information immediately after the accident.
