Phoenix Paraplegia / Quadriplegia Lawyers
Did Your Injuries Result In Paralysis?
Any time a victim’s spinal cord is injured in an accident, they are at risk of suffering permanent and irreversible damage. The most devastating disability, paralysis, can make even the simplest tasks like walking or feeding yourself without assistance impossible. Far too often, injuries that lead to this issue are caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, and you deserve the chance to file a lawsuit to recover the compensation you need to ensure you and your family aren’t left in financial trouble from paying for the necessary care and treatment. Whether your injuries were caused by a dangerous hazard, an auto accident, or anything else, you need to hire a qualified lawyer who is prepared to represent you at the negotiation table and in court.
At MayesTelles, PLLC, our Phoenix paralysis lawyers have represented injured victims throughout Arizona, and are passionate about providing them with the legal advice and attention they require in their time of need. Paraplegia and quadriplegia change the way injured victims can live the rest of their lives, and many of them will require round the clock assistance. Even the least severe case of paraplegia will cost millions of dollars in treatment and rehabilitation, and no victim should ever be required to cover these expenses out of their own pocket. Contact us today so we can help you put together a plan of action that will allow you to secure the maximum compensation possible.
How Serious Are Your Injuries?
Like most injuries, medical professionals classify the severity of your paralysis into separate categories depending on how much motor and sensory function you still have below the site of the injury. The two levels of paralysis are:
- Incomplete Paralysis: You have retained a limited amount of motor and sensory function below the location of the injury.
- Complete Paralysis: No motor or sensory function remains below the location of the injury.
Medical professionals also classify your paralysis based on the location of the injury and what body parts it affects. The two types of paralysis are:
- Paraplegia: Paralysis that affects you from the lower trunk or below is classified as paraplegia.
- Quadriplegia: Also commonly referred to as tetraplegia, paralysis that affects your body above your lower trunk – and often affects all four limbs – is classified as quadriplegia.
Even though certain types of paralysis are considered ‘less severe’ than others, they still limit your ability to interact with the world around you. On top of the bills from treatment and rehabilitation, victims will likely need to pay for specialized transportation, accommodations, and 24/7 care, none of which is cheap. If your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, you need to hire qualified legal representation to help you file a lawsuit to secure the compensation you require to cover any damages, pain and suffering, lost wages, or bills resulting from your injury.
