What is Paraplegia & Quadriplegia?
Paraplegia refers to paralysis below the abdomen, affecting both legs and sometimes the bowel and bladder. Quadriplegia refers to paralysis below the neck, including the arms, legs, bowel and bladder.
Both paraplegia and quadriplegia are caused by injuries to the neck and/or spinal cord. While some people become paraplegic or quadriplegic in an auto accident or as a result of a slip and fall injury, other times medical malpractice is to blame. Examples of medical malpractice that can lead to paraplegia or quadriplegia include:

Becoming paraplegic or quadriplegic will dramatically alter a person's quality of life forever. Once independent people, paraplegics and quadriplegics suddenly find themselves dependent on other people for help with daily activities. Furthermore, many paraplegics and quadriplegics are unable to work, and if they can work they usually have to change the type of job they do. All of this can take both a financial and emotional toll on the victim. Dr. Fagel and his staff understand this, and are committed to helping clients throughout Phoenix and the state of Arizona recover the compensation they need to care for themselves both now and in the future.
