If you or a loved one has suffered an injury that resulted in the loss or paralysis of both arms and legs, the attorneys of Wilshire Law Firm want to express our sincere wishes for your speedy and complete recovery. If that quadriplegia injury was to any extent due to the negligence of others, or if an insurance company does not want to adequately compensate your losses, the legal services of our personal injury attorneys can ensure those parties uphold their obligations to restore your financial circumstances and long-term health
The types of catastrophic injuries that cause quadriplegia are often the result of accidents that could have been avoided. Whether due to the actions of an unsafe driver, poorly maintained equipment, or other negligence, if another party contributed to the events that caused your injury, the personal injury attorneys at Wilshire Law Firm can establish liability and secure compensation for you expenses and loss.
The most common causes of quadriplegia injuries are:
- Motorcycle accidents
- Airplane accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Limousine accidents
- Train and subway accidents
- Tour bus accidents
Time is of the essence, however. There are statutory time limits to filing a civil claim for damages, and we recommend that you engage the services of a competent quadriplegia accident lawyer as soon as is reasonably possible after the accident. Our attorneys are certified in the intricacies of personal injury law and how they can be used to maximize your settlement with the negligent parties and their insurance companies. Due to the incapacity of many quadriplegia injury victims, it is important for the family of the injured victim to be proactive in speaking to a serious permanent injury lawyer.
Quadriplegia injuries are arguably the most severe personal injuries that can result from an accident. The injuries are permanent and irreversible, and the victim will be paralyzed and bound to a wheelchair for his or her remaining lifetime. Accidents leading to quadriplegia injuries almost always cause extreme pain and suffering to the victim, and that pain continues long after the victim’s recovery and rehabilitation program have been completed. The victim will require ongoing assistance with almost every basic human need, which creates a lot of strain and stress on family members.
