Orlando Quadriplegia Lawyers
Representing Victims Suffering from Quadriplegia / Tetraplegia
Quadriplegia is also known as tetraplegia. Quadriplegia / tetraplegia is the paralysis of all limbs due to spinal cord injury. This is usually caused by illness or injury that results in partial or total loss of use of all limbs and the torso. Loss of bowel and bladder use is also common. Because of the depressed function and immobility, quadriplegics are often more vulnerable to pressure sores, osteoporosis, and fractures.
Severity depends on the level at which the spinal cord is injured and the extent of the injury. For instance, take the following examples:
- A person with a C1 injury will most likely lose function from the neck down and be on a ventilator for the rest of his or her life.
- A person with a C7 injury may lose function from the chest down but still retain use of the arms and hands.
- A complete severing of the spinal cord will result in total loss of function from that vertebra down. It is common to have the movement in limbs, such as the ability to move the arms but not the hands, or to be able to use the fingers but not to the same extent as before the injury.
