Chicago Paralysis Lawyer
Catastrophic Injury Attorneys Protecting the Rights of Quadriplegia and Paraplegia Victims
Paralysis is a devastating condition caused by injury to the spinal cord resulting in the loss of the ability to move or feel an extremity. Paraplegia is the paralysis to either the legs or arms from a trauma to the spinal cord in the neck or back. Quadriplegia, also called tetraplegia, is paralysis of all four extremities typically from an injury to the neck area of the spinal cord. While symptoms vary from person to person depending on the exact location of the injury, paralysis is a life-changing condition that impacts not just the victim, but also everyone involved in his or her life.

The Physical Impact of Quadriplegia
Quadriplegic patients typically lose both control and sensation in affected areas of their body, including the limbs, torso, and pelvic organs. The inability to move can also cause a number of other problems, including difficulty breathing, impaired digestion, bladder and bowel incontinence, susceptibility to pressure sores, burning neuropathic pain, increased susceptibility to infection, and more. Some patients may require a ventilator to help them breathe. Patients with quadriplegia require around-the-clock care to help them take care of their daily needs.
Common Causes of Paralysis
Paralysis injuries commonly result from the following types of accidents:
- Car accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Severe slip/trip & fall accidents
In rare instances, paralysis may also result from medical malpractice.
