Back surgery after a car accident

Back surgery is often necessary after a car accident. This is especially true if you or a loved one sustained a spinal cord injury in a car accident. Other common back injuries sustained in car accidents which often require back surgery include:

  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Herniated disc
  • Bulging disc
  • Severed spinal card
  • Partially severed spinal cord

Whatever type of back injury you’re dealing with which requires surgery, you can count on our attorneys to be your strong legal advocates for the best possible medical care.

What are common back surgery procedures after a car accident?

There are many different types of surgical procedures performed on people injured in a car accident. Some of the most common back surgery procedures include:

  • Spinal fusion surgery
  • Discectomy
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Laminectomy

Whatever type of back surgery you need for your car accident injury, it’s important that you have your procedure done in a timely manner. That way, you will have the best opportunity to recover to the fullest.

What is my car accident back surgery settlement worth?

No two accidents are ever exactly alike. And the same is true when it comes to what your car accident settlement could be worth if you require back surgery. Some settlement claims may be worth thousands of dollars, while others may be worth millions. It’s also important to remember that your settlement claim should include all car accident-related expenses, now and in the future. This includes:

  • Surgical procedures
  • Follow-up medical care
  • Vehicle replacement or repair costs
  • Replacement income during recovery
  • Lost future income if you cannot return to work
  • Modifications to your home if you have a permanent disability

The stakes are high and the other driver’s insurance company knows that. That’s why they will likely do often do everything they can to fight your claim and deny it. And one of their most common tactics is to claim you were somehow responsible for your crash.

We know the tricks they play. And as your attorney, we’re prepared to take a tough stance if your car accident back injury requires surgery. We know how to negotiate with insurance companies. And if they refuse to cooperate, we will not hesitate to file a car accident lawsuit on your behalf. You can count on us after your Kansas car accident.
