What is Tetraplegia?

Tetraplegia is a life changing condition that leaves a victim of an accident with severe paralysis, which will result in a total loss of all or most of their limbs and their torso. Sufferers of tetraplegia will need to be cared for full-time for the rest of their lives and will need to be accommodated accordingly, such as moving to a new premises that will be required to make their lives more comfortable, such as a bungalow. Even life’s simplest tasks will become much more difficult for any tetraplegia victim.

On top of the emotional pain that is caused by such a terrible condition, it’s hard to imagine being in the situation and how much of a life changer it actually is, especially if it was as a result of an accident that was not their fault. If that was the case for somebody close to yourself, and you wish to create a compensation claim case against those responsible, then you will require the services of expert solicitors who are experienced in that sort of area.
