Quadriplegia – or paralysis of all four limbs – is one of the most trying injuries and medical conditions. People who have quadriplegia must learn to cope with a lifetime of new limitations and day-to-day requirements while also remember how they felt before the accident. Oftentimes, one of the few ways to help them gain financial stability and find a sense of justice that enables them to move forward is to file a lawsuit against the parties that caused their paralysis.
At Klein Frank, P.C., we have seen firsthand through working closely with our clients just how much emotional and financial harm quadriplegia does, especially when considering its impacts years into the future. If you are currently dealing with the life-changing impacts caused by quadriplegia, then we can help you take legal action. The at-fault party’s insurance carrier should be the one to pay your bills, lost wages, and other damages, not you. We can show you how to hold them liable through a claim or lawsuit.
We proudly offer free initial consultations. Call (303) 448-8884.
Damages in Quadriplegia Cases
It is not uncommon for quadriplegia patients to experience extreme financial hardships caused directly by their injury and permanent paralysis. Taking care of themselves can be a challenge each day, if not an outright impossibility. If there are medical treatments available to lessen the effects of the paralysis, such as when the paralysis is not complete, then it is likely that the treatments will be as extensive as they are expensive. With everything considered, the ability to make a living can feel like an uphill battle.
