Quadriplegia is a condition in which a person experiences paralysis in both arms and both legs. Quadriplegia may also be referred to as tetraplegia. Victims of quadriplegia may lose all mobility of their arms and legs or just experience some loss of mobility. When a person sustains a spinal cord injury, cervical nerves can become damaged, which may lead to paralysis of all four limbs. Quadriplegia may also lead to the weakening of the sufferer’s chest and abdominal muscles, which can make it difficult for the sufferer to breathe or cough properly.
Aside from devastating paralysis of all four limbs, quadriplegia sufferers may also experience the following symptoms:
- limp muscles in arms and legs
- digestive system dysfunction
- respiratory system dysfunction
- sexual dysfunction
- low blood pressure
In most cases, quadriplegia is caused by traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries. Injuries of this nature are referred to as catastrophic injuries. Catastrophic injuries are very severe and also life threatening. Unlike other injuries, catastrophic injuries demand continual medical treatment from doctors, physical therapists, neurologists, medications, and medical devices. Without proper medical treatment, quadriplegia victims’ conditions may become worse over time. In fact, approximately two-thirds of quadriplegia victims suffer further spinal cord damage due to delayed injury diagnosis and treatment.
Quadriplegia and Personal Injury Law
If you sustained a brain or spinal cord injury that resulted in quadriplegia, and the injury was caused by third party negligence, you may be entitled to seek monetary compensation from the party at fault. New York personal injury law allows victims of negligence to file a lawsuit against liable parties to recover damages for their medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain, and emotional suffering.
