For a free case evaluation, please call Whetstone Perkins & Fulda at (803) 828-6100.
When Negligence Leads to Paraplegia and Quadriplegia
We have handled numerous spinal cord injury cases over the years. In quadriplegia and paraplegia cases, oftentimes the disabilities are caused by one of the following:
- Auto accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Boat accidents
- Birth injuries
- Medical malpractice
- Construction accidents
- Falls from heights
Paraplegia and quadriplegia involves partial or total loss of function in the legs, and sometimes the arms and torso as well. Any damages from a lawsuit must adequately compensate you for the way these disabilities have impacted your life – financially, physically, emotionally and otherwise. There is no cure for quadriplegia or paraplegia, and you may need many lifestyle modifications in order to live with your disability.
