Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers New York City
Spinal cord injuries usually occur suddenly as a result of some external trauma. Despite the suddenness of their onset, spinal cord injuries are permanent and almost always overwhelming. Sadly, as many as 11,000 Americans suffer a traumatic spinal cord injury every year. Perhaps the most catastrophic type of spinal cord injury is quadriplegia, also known as tetraplegia. Quadriplegia is a devastating condition marked by the permanent paralysis of all four limbs. Currently, there is no cure for quadriplegia and those who suffer from this type of injury frequently face enormous physical, emotional, and financial losses.

Common Causes of Quadriplegia
Some of the most common causes of quadriplegia include:
- Vehicle accidents, particularly car and motorcycle accidents
- Gunshot wounds and other violent acts
- Sports accidents
- Disease and/or infection
Spinal cord injuries like quadriplegia are irreversible and generally require lifelong medical care, including medication, surgery, and rehabilitation. Individuals suffering from quadriplegia may also benefit from the use of new technologies such as lightweight wheelchairs, computer devices, and electrical stimulation devices, among other things.
In many cases, the costs associated with treating quadriplegia can be financially crushing. Accident victims and those who suffer from the condition because of someone else's negligent or reckless behavior may be able to recover some, if not all, of their financial losses by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
