Understanding the Impact of Paraplegia & Quadriplegia
Paralysis is typically categorized as complete or incomplete. Incomplete
paralysis refers to the fact that individuals can still retain some fine
motor control and sensation. Conversely, individuals suffering from complete
paralysis will most likely lose all feeling and movement in the affected regions.
Paraplegia: An accident or illness that damages the lower regions of the spinal cord
can cause paraplegia—which refers to paralysis of the legs and lower body.
Quadriplegia: A more serious type of paralysis, quadriplegia includes both the upper
and lower portions of the body. Damage to the upper region of the spinal
cord can cause paralysis to both the arms and legs. Individuals who suffer
from quadriplegia might also have difficulty breathing, and they might
require the use of a ventilator to continue breathing.
At Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge, we understand that these injuries
can be devastating. It is our goal to completely handle the legal side
of our clients' dilemma while they focus on living their life.
