Quadriplegia is also commonly known as tetraplegia. Quadriplegia and tetraplegia both mean “paralysis of four limbs.” In Europe, the term tetraplegia is more commonly used than quadriplegia. In quadriplegia there may be partial or total loss of use of all arms and limbs, as well as the torso. Sensation and control of the arms are generally lost. If you were injured by the negligent, intentional or reckless conduct of another, or by a defective product, you may be eligible to seek and recover compensatory damages for your pain and suffering, lost income, lost future income, medical expenses, loss of enjoyment of life, and in some egregious cases, punitive damages. It is vital to get the experienced legal help that you need when negotiating and/or litigating a case of this nature. The Sacramento Law Firm of Shepard & Haven has been representing clients for more than a combined 70 years in and around the Sacramento area. A complimentary case review is available to pursue your legal options.
