Paraplegia and Quadriplegia/Tetraplegia

When it comes to a spinal cord injury, the victim can experience temporary and often permanent paralysis. A person becomes paralyzed when there has been some injury to the spinal cord which causes a break in motor and sensory signals in the body.

Paralysis can be partial or complete. Partial paralysis only affects certain parts of the body and limits some mobility or use. Complete paralysis means a total loss of the use of that part of the body.

There are two major categories of paralysis:

  • Paraplegia – which generally affects areas such as the legs and some of the abdominal area.
  • Quadriplegia/Tetraplegia – which generally means paralysis from the neck down.

Paralysis on any level, whether temporary or permanent, can be traumatic, stressful and a burden that the victim shouldn’t have to deal with financially.

As you can imagine, the medical bills for this type of injury can quickly begin to pile up. The need for special equipment, renovations, modifications to home and motor vehicles and the like, further increases the financial burden. The constant medical office visits, tests and lab work, physical therapy and rehabilitation costs can be very overwhelming. All of this, coupled with the loss of income from not being able to work can cause undue stress on victims and their families.
