Paraplegia & Quadriplegia

California Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Paraplegia is a condition in which an individual has had a traumatic injury to the spinal cord nerve tissue, causing partial or full paralysis to the lower extremities. Both motor and sensory functions are affected and this loss of feeling or function can result in medical complications throughout the person's life. Quadriplegia is a paralysis, brought about by a birth injury or illness, in which sensation and control is lost in all limbs and the torso. The loss of use and feeling can be partial or total and can result in respiratory complications, infections, cardiovascular disease, pressure sores and other non-optimum conditions. In addition to injury to the spinal cord, quadriplegia can be attributed to brain injury as well.

Medical malpractice, where a doctor does not diagnose and/or quickly resolve labor and delivery situations or warning signs in a newborn, can cause paraplegia or quadriplegia. Failures in fetal heart tracing and other standard medical practices can create emergency situations where there is trauma or injury at birth.

When medical negligence has brought about a birth injury, we want to hear from you and help you get to the bottom of what happened. A knowledgeable California birth injury attorney from our firm can help you understand what medical malpractice is and whether it applies to your situation.
