Consequences of Quadriplegia

The effects of a spinal cord injury will depend on its location and severity. These injuries are divided into two basic categories: complete, in which nerves are fully severed, and partial, in which nerves are damaged but not severed. Partial injuries usually cause fewer symptoms than complete ones.

Problems that people with quadriplegia may encounter include:

  • Full or partial loss of sensation below the spinal injury
  • Full or partial loss of muscle control below the injury
  • Breathing difficulties (may require respirator)
  • Neuralgia (chronic pain caused by nerve damage)
  • Bowel, bladder, and sexual dysfunction

These problems can cause or exacerbate health complications like bedsores, blood clots, depression, and more. Adjusting to quadriplegia can be very difficult for victims and their families alike. To learn about compensation for these tragic injuries, call one of our experienced and compassionate Phoenix quadriplegia attorneys.
