What are the TSGLI Loss Standards for Paralysis?
This article covers the TSGLI loss standards for paralysis. Including the categories and specific injury types.
There are four categories of paralysis.
Quadriplegia – complete paralysis of all four limbs. (A limb is defined as an arm or a leg with all its parts.)
Paraplegia – complete paralysis of both lower limbs.
Hemiplegia – complete paralysis of the upper and lower limbs on one side of the body.
Uniplegia – complete paralysis of one limb.
If the member suffers complete paralysis due to damage to the spinal cord, associated nerves or to the brain, and the paralysis fall into one of the above four categories, the member may be eligible for a TSGLI benefit. The benefit payment for Quadriplegia, Paraplegia and Hemiplegia can be up to $100,000 and the benefit payment for Uniplegia may be up to $50,000.
Damage to the Spinal Cord
The spinal cord is the main pathway between the brain and the rest of the body.
Spinal cord injury occurs when the spinal cord becomes damaged, most commonly, when accidents fracture vertebrae and crush or transect the spinal cord.
Vertebrae are the rings of bones that surround the spinal cord and make up the spinal column (back bone). The vertebrae are named according to their location in the spinal column. There are seven cervical (neck), twelve thoracic (back), five lumbar and five sacral (lower back) vertebrae.
Cervical spinal cord injuries usually cause loss of function in both the arms and legs. (Quadriplegia). Thoracic spinal cord injuries usually affect the chest and the legs; and lumbar and sacral injuries affect the hips and legs (paraplegia).
