Quadriplegic & Paraplegic Injury Attorney, Portland, OR

The two most tragic forms of paralysis are paraplegia (loss of function from the waist down) and quadriplegia (loss of function from the neck down). If the negligent or reckless behavior of a person or company has caused either of these forms of paralysis, you and your family deserve compensation for not only your current pain, but also the long-term cost of your injury. That’s what we’re here for.

At Pickett Dummigan Weingart, our experienced lawyers take claims involving paraplegia or quadriplegia resulting from any type of injury, including:

  • Construction injuries, including inadequate or non-existent safety equipment, falls from scaffolding or ladders, injuries caused by falling equipment, failing boom lifts, or other falling objects
  • Surgical error where lack of care leads to nerve or spinal cord damage
  • Motor vehicle or trucking collisions, whether as a driver, passenger, or pedestrian
  • Dangerous or defective products, including tools, machinery or heavy equipment

While you can’t put a price on such a serious injury, you can make sure that you and your family are fully prepared to live with this new condition. We are committed to using our skill, experience, knowledge, and resources to get the results you want. We have successfully won quadriplegia and paraplegia injury cases throughout the Northwest and can handle claims in the state and federal courts in Oregon and Washington.
