One of the most tragic and debilitating injuries a worker can suffer are those that lead to paraplegia or quadriplegia. Quadriplegia is a paralysis that results in partial or total loss of sensation and control in all limbs and the torso. Paraplegia is a related disease but does not affect the sufferer’s arms. Injuries that occur higher in the spine tend to cause quadriplegia, while lower spine injuries are often responsible for paraplegia. Both of these conditions can be devastating, affecting mobility and the ability to work.
Quadriplegia and paraplegia require vast amounts of medical treatment and ongoing medical support. Because of this, it is important to seek counsel and secure workers’ compensation benefits for you or your loved one.
Oftentimes the lifestyle overhaul needed to properly care for a paraplegia or quadriplegia victim is extensive, and the workers compensation attorneys at Kaplan Lawyers PC recognize the need for personalized, full-time aid as well as financial assistance.
