WHAT IS QUADRIPLEGIA?

Quadriplegia, or tetraplegia, means you can’t move or feel anything below your neck. It happens when the bundle of nerves running from the base of your skull to your tailbone—the spinal cord—gets damaged.

This damage usually occurs because of trauma to the bones surrounding your spinal column. So, when you hear about quadriplegia, it’s about losing mobility and sensation in everything below your neck, and it’s often linked to injuries around the spinal area.

This trauma can result in paralysis below the damaged area. Typically, quadriplegia involves injuries to the cervical section (the neck) or the thoracic section (the upper back).

Unlike paraplegia, which affects only the lower body, quadriplegia profoundly impacts a person’s ability to move and feel.

This spinal damage makes communication between the brain and the body’s nerves extremely challenging or impossible. Quadriplegia can be complete or incomplete, varying from no sensation or motor control below the neck to having some sensation or control.

Whether complete or incomplete, quadriplegia can lead to life-altering consequences, affecting mobility, and sensory functions, and even causing severe nerve pain.

Quadriplegia can also give rise to secondary medical conditions such as blood clots, pneumonia, bedsores, autonomic dysreflexia, low blood pressure, phantom pain, bladder and urinary tract infections, bowel function issues, respiratory problems, deep vein thrombosis, and sepsis.

The real-world costs of quadriplegia are staggering, requiring years of medical treatment to address daily challenges.

Depending on your accident’s circumstances, you may be entitled to hold someone else accountable for your injuries and seek full compensation for all related costs.

WHAT CAUSES QUADRIPLEGIA?

The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) reports that 250,000 to 368,000 individuals in the United States live with a spinal cord injury.

The primary causes of spinal cord injuries are:

  • Vehiculer collisions – 38.6%
  • Falls – 32.2%
  • Violence (Gun Shot Wounds) – 14.0%
  • Sports injuries – 7.8%
  • Medical/surgical errors – 4.2%

Regardless of the spinal cord injury type or accident nature, victims deserve fair compensation if someone else is responsible for their injuries.

WHY YOU SHOULD SPEAK TO AN ATTORNEY

Every quadriplegia case is unique, involving different circumstances, severity, and future prospects for the victim. Quadriplegia significantly alters a person’s life, making it challenging to work, earn a living, care for a family, and enjoy normal activities.

Taking legal action is crucial when negligence causes the injury, but Washington state laws impose time limits on filing lawsuits, underscoring the importance of timely action.

Legal deadlines must not be missed, and your choice of legal representation can significantly impact your case’s success.

Connect with State Law Firm immediately if you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries leading to quadriplegia. We ensure all filing deadlines are met, taking the correct legal actions to help you pursue full compensation.

How much is your case worth?

Each quadriplegia case is unique, with lifetime costs varying based on injury nature, victim’s age, and care level.

According to the NSCISC, average costs for high-level quadriplegia (C1-C4, upper neck) include $1,149,629 for the first year post-injury, $199,637 per following year, $5,100,941 in lifetime costs for a 25-year-old injured individual, and $2,803,391 for a 50-year-old injured individual.

For low-level quadriplegia (C5-C8, neck-to-back area), costs include $830,708 for the first year, $122,468 per following year, $3,727,066 in lifetime costs for a 25-year-old injured individual, and $2,292,479 for a 50-year-old injured individual.

When it comes to these costs, they cover things like surgeries, physical therapy, medical gear, medications, and the extra care you might need from medical professionals or family members.

So, when you’re filing a claim, make sure the compensation you’re aiming for takes into account how the injury is going to affect you in the long run—both financially and personally. It’s about getting the support you need for the challenges you’re facing.

Extensive financial damages may include costs of medical care, training, rehabilitation, nursing care, medications, vehicle and transportation, home renovations, loss of income, and lost earning potential.

In addition to these “hard costs,” State Law Firm is committed to recovering “noneconomic damages,” addressing the personal costs of an injury, such as pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, loss of enjoyment of life, and emotional anguish.

Your lawyer’s duty is to demand both types of compensation by thoroughly researching your injury’s circumstances. Whether your injury resulted from a negligent pool owner or a serious truck accident, State Law Firm utilizes its over 30 years of experience to represent you and your family.
