Los Angeles Quadriplegia Attorneys


[Page updated: 02-06-2021] Quadriplegia, also known by physicians as “tetraplegia,” is among the most severe and devastating conditions an injured person or their surviving family could face. I am world-famous Los Angeles spinal cord injury lawyer, Michael Ehline.

For well over  a decade my compassionate law group’s team and staff have been fighting insurance companies and negligent government agencies on behalf of back injury and quadriplegia victims.

In this article, I will explain Tetraplegia injuries, and how our quadriplegia injury lawyers set up insurance, government claims, and how to collect compensatory damages for back injuries under negligence law theory in a personal injury case.

Unlike a wrongful death, with quadriplegia, the victim lives, but requires round the clock nursing care and lifetime physical therapy, and well as psychological counseling. These are among the most expensive, legally intensive tort claims out there.

Suffering families will require a top notch quadriplegia injury lawyer to gather evidence and build a strong case. Surviving quadriplegia victims facing years of physical therapy, medical care, and other issues face additional and significant burdens, including long-term suffering brought about by these severe spinal cord injuries.

Our Los Angeles, personal injury attorney fighting alongside you helps ensure you receive adequate medical care, legal care, and compensation.


“Tetraplegia,” Quadriplegia Injuries Are:

“An injury to any of the seven (7) cervical vertebra above the first thoracic vertebrae that results 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.”

Unlike paraplegia injuries, the survivor may be completely paralyzed. When another person’s negligence causes Quadriplegia during a car accident, tremendous physical and emotional stress, coupled with massive costs, adversely affects surviving families. But car accidents are just one cause of back injuries and the end result is an expensive, crippling condition.

For example, victims face expenses for:

  • Home health care
  • Nurses
  • Special medicine
  • Loss of employment
  • Specialist visits, including other items.

Victims must not handle their case alone; they must first get an excellent quadriplegia injury lawyer who helps people like you get money for paralysis from the neck down types of claims.

How Quadriplegia Pain Affects Families And Society

A loving family member at the side of the people with paralysis will be a great resource. Wives, husbands, parents, and children remain vital to recovery, yet dealing with tremendous stress, making things far worse when losing your primary breadwinner.

Your ability to pay bills and live the same way as before can become unsustainable. Disabled victims are often left destitute, facing homelessness, discrimination, suffer from depression and PTSD.


Comparing and Contrasting Quadriplegia With Paraplegia?

A person suffering from the spinal injury quadriplegia faces a total loss of bodily control from their neck down. In contrast, paraplegia will typically immobilize your legs only, allowing the use of one or both hands. (Learn more here).

A parent or child handicapped by Quadriplegia caused during a bad accident will suffer education, job, and business losses, including familial and societal alienation, seeing their lives spiral out of control.

What About Your Quadriplegia Disability And Its Negligence Connection?

A careless person’s negligence or carelessness remains a significant cause of Quadriplegia, including:

If your doctor misdiagnoses your hematoma or other professionally discoverable condition, including a compressed spine, or infection, that caretaker faces tort liability beyond the person causing the original injury to you or your loved one. Only an expert personal injury lawyer, including those at our law group, knows the winning steps to take to score you an award of maximum compensation for quadriplegia cases.

What Are Some Negligence Scenarios Causing Quadriplegia?

  • Auto accidents cause around half of U.S. back injuries, with those most severe causing severe spinal cord-related damage.
    • Examples of injury-causing products include faulty seats or lap belts causing paralysis.
  • In America, 6,500 people suffer Quadriplegia-related injuries annually.
  • 130,000 live with Quadriplegia each year, causing tremendous stress to victims and their loved ones.

What Are Some Examples Of Real Victims And Causation?

Many people living through paralysis are or were significant members of society. Not even the best quadriplegia attorney was able to win these victims back the use of their arms or legs.

What are Some More News Examples of Greater Los Angeles Quadriplegia?

On Jan. 4, 2001, Leon Bostick was training at Gold’s Gym Venice when weights fell and broke his neck resulting in permanent disability and a vast lousy faith award. The P.V. School District has a hearing to see whether a paralyzed girl can even attend their school.

A person with Quadriplegia remained stranded on a Disneyland ride in one case. In another case, a poor girl was disabled after a car crash. They all hired a personal injury attorney, yet none of them or their loved ones regained normal lives afterward.

  • A Pop Warner youth football player paralyzed making a tackle during a 2011 game filed the first-ever lawsuit over “head-first” tackling.

These cases and others show a tremendous risk in the L.A. area alone for these types of injuries.

What About Involuntary Function Issues?

Often tetraplegia causes involuntary bodily functions, such as:

  • Respiratory conditions
  • Digestion problems
  • Uncontrollable coughing
  • Excretion of body waste to become difficult, involuntary, or even impossible.

What About Receiving Money For Potential Future Medical Breakthrough Treatments?

Potential treatments are in the works, which could help those with paraplegia, including:

  • Robotic Body Suits
  • Stem Cells
  • Disc Replacement

Unfortunately, these treatments are years away. Dealing with current pain and paralysis will need great care to guide you through this terrible time. But an excellent lawyer may be able to argue you are entitled to money for future treatments and therapies.

What About Receiving Money For Inability To Perform Everyday Tasks?

The bottom line, in most cases, your mouth remains the only fully functional body part, with people suffering from this condition requiring assistance helping them dress, feed them, and wash them for years. The pain and suffering these victims face is something few non disabled persons can ever comprehend.

Does Hiring An Excellent Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer Increase Your Chances Of An Economic Recovery?

Yes. Absolutely! These injury cases are at the far end of the extreme scale. People injured by Quadriplegia remain unlikely to walk again, often suffering permanent nerve damage with future cures impossible for decades to come.

You must seek legal advice. A severe injury attorney’s help will be crucial in cases involving paralysis, helping pay your assisted living and medical costs.
