Common Reasons a Spinal Fusion Surgery May Be Necessary
According to Cleveland Clinic research, a spinal fusion surgery is performed to stabilize an injured back. A spinal fusion connects two vertebrae together to alleviate pain and improve the patient’s mobility. This surgery is typically prescribed:
- After a car accident or other traumatic experience
- To treat congenital spinal conditions
- To treat a herniated, slipped, or ruptured disk
- To treat pinched nerves in your neck or back
Our law firm offers free consultations. We can discuss your injury to better understand its cause and determine the type of compensation case to file on your behalf. How your injury was caused will play an important part in many factors of your case, including whether to file a potential lawsuit.
Compensation Your Spinal Fusion Lawyer Can Seek on Your Behalf
Our Dayton spinal fusion lawyers can pursue damages that reflect all of your injury-related losses, taking everything you’ve suffered into account. We can advocate on your behalf, fighting for fair compensation that could include both economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages have a distinct monetary amount and generally come with bills or receipts to prove the value. Your spinal fusion lawyer can use all of this documentation to calculate your economic damages, including:
- All necessary medical expenses, such as surgery, chiropractic care, rehab and therapy, ambulance fees, diagnostic tests, urgent care fees, or prescription medication for chronic pain
- Lost income for the work you missed due to your spinal injury
- Property damage or loss, if applicable
At The Fitch Law Firm LLC, we know the importance of carefully documenting your compensation request. We can also help you avoid a rushed settlement offer that might be made before the actual value of your case is clear, leaving you with an insufficient settlement.
Serious injuries often have more than just physical consequences. They can also take a psychological toll on you. When we assess the value of your case, we can include a request for:
- Mental anxiety
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Disability and disfigurement
It can be hard to calculate these types of damages on your own as things like anxiety and emotional distress don’t come with a price tag. Our lawyers can determine an appropriate value for each of your intangible damages.

Negligence in a Spinal Injury Lawsuit
To help pursue damages for you, we collect evidence that proves the at-fault party’s negligence and your right to financial compensation. We can find proof that the legal elements of negligence exist in your case. According to Ohio Department of Insurance (ODI) guidelines, they include:
- Proof that you were owed a duty of reasonable care
- Proof that the at-fault party breached their duty to provide that care
- Proof that the accident would not have occurred without their actions (or inaction, in some cases)
- Proof that the accident caused your injuries and losses
These elements allow you to hold the at-fault party accountable for the result of their negligent action or their failure to take appropriate action.
