Quadriplegia & Tetraplegia
Orange County Workers’ Comp Lawyers
When someone suffers a serious spinal cord injury, quadriplegia – sometimes called tetraplegia – may occur, especially when the injury is towards the top of the spine or base of the skull. The immediate effect of quadriplegia is paralysis of all four limbs, pelvic muscles, and lower internal organs. Due the severity of quadriplegia, permanent paralysis is likely to occur even when medical attention is given.
If you or a loved one are suffering from quadriplegia due to a workplace accident, there may be serious courtroom battles on the horizon if you want to be properly compensated and receive appropriate lifetime benefits. Our Orange County workers’ compensation attorneys can rise to the challenge and take on your complicated injury case for you, allowing you to focus on your own well-being rather than the nuances and intricacies of workers’ compensation law.
Necessary Compensation for Patients
In some work industries, the risk of suffering a fully debilitating and paralyzing spinal cord injury may be increased due to the nature of the work. Construction site workers and firefighters, for example, often have to work in extreme conditions and do heavy lifting with their back.
The inherent danger of a job does not excuse the employer or parent company from liability; instead, it serves to show that they should have implemented thorough safety protocols and procedures to ensure that no quadriplegia incidents ever occur.
You will need workers’ compensation benefits that pay for:
- Initial emergency medical care
- Lengthy hospitalization
- Lifelong rehabilitation and therapy
- Lost or reduced wages
- Necessary modifications to your home
- Emotional trauma and suffering
When all of your necessary expenses add up, it can be quite costly. The insurance company of your employer may see the sum and become motivated to shift liability onto you, which would enable them to provide lesser benefits. As unfortunate as this may be, it is yet another reason why you should retain professional legal counsel today.
