What is Quadriplegia?

“When I seek out professional advice, I don’t want B.S. I want it straight up, with no double talk. I figure do also. I always use plain English, with no sugarcoating no B.S lawyer talk, and no double talk- just old fashioned, unsweetened, unvarnished truth-just the way that I would want it.” -Bill Turley

If you've been injured on the job, you probably have a ton of questions. I understand. You are concerned about your family and your livelihood. My suggestion is the first step you should take before anything else is to read my book, Win Your Injury Case. I wrote it to help folks like you, good people who got hurt on the job.

What is Quadriplegia?

Quadriplegia, is also known as tetraplegia. This tragic condition occurs when there is an injury to any of the seven (7) cervical vertebra above the first thoracic vertebrae. This injury can result not only in loss of feeling and function of the arms and legs, it can also cause severe pain, loss of bladder control, bowel control, muscle spasm, sexual dysfunction, loss of fertility, as well as shortened lifespan.

 

The Tragedy

Paralyzation below the neck is one of the worst types of injuries. People with these types of injuries are highly unlikely to recover their lost mobility, as they usually have permanent nerve damage and severance of other tissue that normally causes electrical signals to be sent to the brain.

 

Quadriplegia &  Workers Compensation

When quadriplegia is caused by a work injury, you need to understand that you will be in a fight with the insurance company for needed benefits.  Even if you are getting all of the benefits you need today, if the workers compensation insurance company decides to cut your benefits - you need to be prepared.  You need the necessary medical evidence ready if you get cut off by the workers compensation insurance company or they start to nickle and dime you on medical treatment. 

 

It is important  to have the necessary evidence to ensure a quadriplegia victim truly has the most up to date medical care. A good workers compensation lawyer can oftentimes persuade the workers compensation insurance company to provide proper benefits.  Other times a trial and an Order from the WCAB  will be needed to obtain proper benefits.
