How do I Increase the Value of My Surgical Back Injury Case?

An accidental back injury may require surgery to remove bulging spinal discs (the soft cushions that separate the individual bones of the spine), and the bones in the spine may need to be fused together for support.

It can be hard for an insurance company or courtroom jury to decide how much that injury is worth. At Stokes & Kopitsky, our lawyers use many tools to show insurers (or jurors) the serious, painful, and costly results of the injury. These tools include: 1) Medical illustrations, which help expert doctors explain the exact injury, what happened in surgery, and the end result. By vividly showing just how terrible the injury and surgery are, these professionally-drawn medical pictures can increase the value of the case by tens of thousands of dollars. 2) Once the victim’s spine is fused, the victim’s ability to earn money is decreased for the rest of his or her life. We have found that a vocational rehabilitation specialist is the right person to “translate” a permanent disability rating into the total earnings the victim is likely to lose due to a decrease in mobility, chronic pain, and even a need for more surgeries that will limit the victim’s steady earnings and ability to keep a good job. This can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars over a lifetime – compensation the victim is entitled to receive.
