West Palm Beach Paraplegia Attorney
Anthony Quackenbush is a West Palm Beach Paraplegia Lawyer whose number one goal is to help clients who desperately need help. Paraplegia can produce lifelong and often devastating results. You deserve a lawyer in your corner who is tough, knowledgeable, and proven. Mr. Quackenbush works hard to help clients who are rendered paraplegics because of an accident or another disastrous event.
Paraplegia typically refers to the condition of paralysis below the waist. Frequently, it is a result of an impact sustained by the lower spinal cord. This type of condition results in the paralysis of a victim’s lower torso and legs. Many different types of incidents might cause paraplegia. Truck, motorcycle, and car accidents are some incidents that might cause paralysis. In addition, a dangerously defective product, boating accident, or slip and falls can cause paraplegia.
After any of these accidents, a paralyzed victim might pursue a personal injury claim against an at-fault person to recover compensation for his or her costs and losses. The injured person can experience feelings of loss of his or her normal life. Mr. Quackenbush can sympathize with this pain, and this empathy permits him to successfully represent his clients.

Paraplegia is typically the result of damage to the brain, spinal cord, or both. In some cases, spinal cord injuries to the thoracic, lumbar, or sacral spinal cord are to blame. When these injuries occur, signals cannot travel to and from the lower regions of the body, and the body is prevented from sending signals back up the spinal cord to the brain. For example, a person’s “back” is made up of the thoracic and lumbar spines. The thoracic spine is the name for the mid-back. The lumbar spine, on the other hand, is the name for the lower back. Injuries to either the thoracic spine or the lumbar spine can cause a person to experience symptoms in his or her legs, feet or toes.
It is for this reason that an injury to a person’s thoracic, lumbar or sacral spine is what normally causes paraplegia involving the legs. Paraplegics not only struggle with movement below the waist but they also experience extensive loss of sensation. This sensation loss ranges from a feeling of tingling or reduced feeling in the waist and legs to a complete inability to feel anything below the waist.
Physical therapy can be extremely helpful for the person experiencing paraplegia. It can help the person to begin to feel sensation and even some movement in the limbs. In addition, occupational therapy can help the person experiencing paraplegia to possibly even get back to work.This Palm Beach County Paraplegia Lawyer Fights Relentlessly for Injured Clients
If Mr. Quackenbush becomes your attorney, he will likely retain an expert called a “vocational rehabilitation expert.” This expert will analyze your situation and attempt to determine what, if any, work you’ll be able to do in the future.
The reason Mr. Quackenbush will hire this expert is because, in the State of Florida, you are entitled to compensation for three things:
- Medical bills/expenses
- Lost wages/time missed at work, and
- Pain and suffering
The vocational rehabilitation expert will attempt to justify your claim for lost wages/time missed at work.
If Mr. Quackenbush becomes your attorney, he will also likely hire an expert called an “economist.” The economist will attempt to determine how much money you will lose as a result of your not being able to work, or not being able to work as much, in the future.
Finally, if Mr. Quackenbush ends up representing you, he will likely hire an expert called a “Life Care Planner.” The life-care planner will attempt to determine how much money in the future your medical treatment/care will cost.
