Common Texas Accidents That Lead To Quadriplegia Injuries

By Williams & Brown LLP on June 15, 2016

What is Quadriplegia?

Quadriplegia is paralysis or inability to move all four limbs (arms and legs) as well as the patient’s torso. Quadriplegia also affects the person’s ability to feel his or her extremities.

What Causes Quadriplegia?

Quadriplegia is commonly caused by injury or trauma to the spinal cord as a result of a serious accident such a motor vehicle crash, a traumatic fall, or other type of traumatic injury.

What is a Whiplash Injury?

By Williams & Brown LLP on May 11, 2015

Perhaps the most alarming finding is that poor medical care and rehabilitation accounts for many of the consequences that arise from SCI and not necessarily the injury itself. Survivors that cannot afford or do not have access to proper medical treatment, assistive devices, and surgical procedures are at a greater risk for developing dangerous secondary conditions, such as pressure ulcers, infections, and respiratory illnesses.

Spinal Cord Injuries and Rollover Auto Accidents

By Williams & Brown LLP on November 20, 2013

Texas Spinal Cord DamageAccording to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Texas roadways have experienced an increase in traffic accidents and fatalities. In 2012, the number of deaths increased by 10 percent compared to 2011 and nearly half of the people killed were reportedly not wearing seat belts.

One of the most common and traumatic injuries that occur in serious car crashes is damage to the spinal cord.  The strong impact of a collision can cause the spine to bend, fracture, and dislocate, particularly around the head and neck, where the spinal column is the most vulnerable.
