Spinal Fusion Can Be a Complicated Surgery
This complex surgery is done to fuse two or more of the vertebrae on your spine together. It uses bone grafts and metal plates, screws, or rods that can secure the vertebrae and bones together.
Your recovery can also be a long and arduous process that prevents you from working to support yourself and your family.
If your injury was caused by negligence, we can file a personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit on your behalf. If it was caused by medical negligence or exacerbated by a surgical error, we can file a medical malpractice case.
Our Springfield Spinal Fusion Practice Areas
Our law firm brings more than 30 years of personal injury experience to your case. We represent clients injured in a variety of ways. According to Mayo Clinic research, spinal fusion surgery is performed to:
- Reshape a spine damaged by scoliosis
- Improve the stability of a weakened spine
- Repair a spine damaged by herniated disks
If your spine was damaged by trauma or your spinal infusion surgery was unsuccessful or performed inappropriately, we could represent you. Our spinal fusion personal injury practice areas include:
- Bicycle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Bus accidents
- Car accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Surgical errors
- Train accidents
- Truck accidents
If your current medical condition is the result of someone else’s negligence, we can accept your case on a contingency fee basis. This means you won’t have to pay any lawyer’s fees unless and until we recover compensation for you. If we cannot recover damages for you, you owe us nothing at all.

Our Spinal Fusion Attorney Can Pursue Compensation on Your Behalf
An injury severe enough to require spinal fusion surgery can be life-changing. It can negatively impact your short- and long-term mobility, including your ability to take care of your personal needs.
When we pursue damages for you, we include all avenues of medical care, including:
- In-home medical support
- Rehab and therapy
- Hospital admissions
- Long-term follow-up care
- Assistive medical devices
In addition to medical expenses, we will request compensation for your past, present, and future lost wages. We also request damages for property damage, loss, or diminished value if your case warrants them (usually, in motor vehicle accident cases). Additional compensation can include disability, disfigurement, mental and emotional anguish, and ongoing pain and suffering.
Your Potential Spinal Fusion Lawsuit Has a State-Imposed Filing Deadline
According to Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10, the personal injury filing deadline is generally two years from the date the accident or injury occurred. Ohio calls this filing deadline the statute of limitations and requires you to file your potential personal injury lawsuit accordingly.
If the statute of limitations expires, you could miss your opportunity to sue the at-fault party and seek fair compensation from them.
Our lawyer can explain any other notification and filing deadlines that affect your case and the steps we can take to meet them. Our goal is to avoid the costly consequences of filing your lawsuit too late, which can prevent you from recovering damages at all.
