Quadriplegia, also known as tetraplegia, is paralysis of all limbs and the torso. It is often the result of damage to the brain or spine. At Ankin Law Office, our Chicago quadriplegia attorneys are committed to getting maximum compensation for victims who have had their lives changed by this serious medical condition.
In many cases, the brain or spinal injury that leads to quadriplegia is the result of a motor vehicle accident. Our lawyers handle cases involving car accidents, truck accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents and much more. We work hard to see that negligent drivers are held accountable when their acts change someone’s life, and we go up against insurance companies that try to avoid paying out the compensation that the victim needs to make his or her life as comfortable as possible after suffering paralysis.
Not surprisingly, personal injury cases involving quadriplegia typically involve high dollar amounts. Compensation is going to need to cover not only the costs of the emergency room visit, but the costs of all future surgeries and rehabilitation efforts. It is going to need to cover the cost of a wheelchair and all replacement wheelchairs in the future, not to mention the costs of converting homes and vehicles to be wheelchair accessible. In most cases, the victim will need regular medical supervision, which does not come cheap. We take care to work with life-care planners and economists to understand exactly how much money will be necessary to help the victim now and for the rest of his or her life.
Call us at 312-600-0000 or send us an email. We handle all quadriplegia injury cases on a contingency basis, which means you pay no fee unless we provide results.
