After a serious car accident, workplace accident or other accident caused by negligence, the consequences can be severe. Quadriplegia describes the condition of partial or complete paralysis in both the arms and legs.

The most common cause of quadriplegia is damage to the spinal cord, which impacts the nerves that carry messages from the brain to the rest of the body. Damage to the brain stem may also cause quadriplegia and other forms of paralysis. This paralysis may be partial or total, and depending on the extent of the damage, may be temporary or permanent.
This kind of paralysis often impacts a victim’s ability to have control over limbs, the ability to breathe normally and other bodily functions. Complete quadriplegia would result in the lack of movement of any part of the body below the neck.Severe Accidents Resulting in Paralysis in California
