Tetraplegia | Paraplegia | Quadriplegia

Spinal cord injuries can be caused by any sort of trauma to the spine. As a League City paraplegia lawyer, we find the most common causes for these injuries include vehicle accidents, slip-and-falls, workplace accidents and even assault.

The location along your spinal cord along with the severity of the injury itself is what affects your ability to control your arms and/or legs. Doctors will classify your injury as either complete or incomplete. Complete means you have no feeling or feelings of sensation below the location of the injury and incomplete means you have some motor or sensory function below the injury. There are varying degrees of injuries labeled incomplete. Paralysis from a spinal cord injury may be referred to as tetraplegia or quadriplegia or paraplegia, but whatever the name doctors give it the diagnosis can be devastating for you and your family.

What It Means for Your Future

We take a lot of things in life for granted, like the ability to pick up a coffee cup, button a shirt or even our ability to communicate. The list is endless and demonstrates how a catastrophic injury resulting in permanent paralysis of any kind can have an effect on even the simplest activities of a person's life. It can take months to fully understand how an injury will change the quality of your life and your ability to take care of yourself; even your family can be impacted in unforeseen ways for years to come.
