Motor vehicle accidents always pose a threat of significant bodily injury or death. Aside from death, the worst injuries a victim may suffer can cause paralysis and lead to the victim becoming a paraplegic or quadriplegic.
Paraplegia involves damage to the lower spinal cord and leads to paralysis of the lower limbs. Quadriplegia (also known as tetraplegia) involves damage in the cervical, or neck, region of the spine and leads to paralysis of all four limbs. If you, your spouse, or your child have been in an accident that has led to paralysis, there are very specific things that should be done to preserve evidence in order to potentially seek insurance coverage.
Depending on who was involved in the accident and the type of insurance coverage that applies, there may be coverage for the injuries you or your loved one sustained in the accident. In order to receive the best possible outcome, you should seek the advice of an attorney qualified to handle severe personal injury cases. We will provide a free consultation to discuss your options if you or your loved one has suffered this type of life-altering injury.
