Sean M. Cleary

Quadriplegia also known as tetraplegia is paralysis of the lower limbs, upper limbs, torso and pelvic organs. Patients usually loose both sensation and control in the affected areas of the body. Injuries above the C-4 level may require a ventilator or electrical implant for the person to breathe. The condition can be caused by illness or injury to the spinal cord or brain. Affected patients have major sensory and motor deficits, so the immediate goal of treatment is to prevent complications and maintain the integrity of the body system.

Attorney Sean M. Cleary knows that no matter what the final outcome of the injury will be, there is no doubt that victims and their families face a highly demanding period. Medical costs can be overwhelming, including long-term medical care. Besides physical and emotional pain patients will be unable to work and will need long-term assistance from a family member or registered nurse. They will have to make complex lifestyle changes and modify their apartments for wheelchair access.
