Quadriplegia, Paraplegia, and Spinal Cord Injuries

Our San Jose Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers are Here to Help!

Some of the worst spinal cord injuries result in paralysis of the limbs. When a person suffers from paralysis of both lower limbs, their condition is referred to as paraplegia. When an individual suffers from paralysis of all four limbs, their condition is referred to as quadriplegia. Unfortunately, most victims who suffer paralysis also require a lifetime of assisted living and are often left bounded to wheelchairs. For this reason, it is crucial for paralysis victims to contact legal advocacy if they believe their injuries were caused due to the negligent or reckless actions of another person.

If you or someone you love has suffered paralyzing injuries, it is urgent you contact our San Jose spinal cord injury lawyers at Shea & Shea immediately. Failure to do so can leave you and your entire family suffering from expensive medical costs, lost wages, ongoing assistance, treatment, pain and suffering, and more.

When you choose to work with our team, you can rest easier knowing we will do everything in our power to pursue monetary compensation for you right away. Call us today!

Consequences of Paralysis

In most cases, these severe spinal cord injuries also result in severe impediments such as:

  • The loss of function and sensation below the area of injury
  • Loss of bladder control
  • Loss of bowel control
  • Loss of sensation

For this reason, it is crucial for paralysis victims to contact legal advocacy if they believe their injuries were caused due to the negligent or reckless actions of another person.
