Prince George's County Back Surgery Lawyer

Back Surgery from Car Accident

Lawyer George Patterson obtained an arbitration award of over $425,000 for a Chesapeake, Maryland client  for a car accident in Anne Arundel County.  The client sustained a herniated disc that required back surgery. The client had incurred medical bills of just over $26,000 but was unable to work as a bridge welder following the back surgery.  The Prince George's County injury lawyer hired an economist to estimate the client's future lost earning capacity.  The hourly rate paid to bridge welders was substantially higher than the hourly rate for work that Mr. Patterson's client was able to perform after the back surgery.   The car accident lawyers at RGPH have experience identifying cases where experts are needed to maximize the client's financial recovery from a car accident.  The Prince George's County personal injury lawyers at RGPH have obtained damages in cases for a permanent loss of earning capacity where their clients have only been disabled from certain jobs.

Back surgeries from car accidents are often needed as a result of a disc herniating or rupturing.  The herniated disc then presses on a nerve causing pain and sometimes weakness.  Lawyer George Patterson has worked with orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons to explain to juries the causal connection between a trauma from a car accident and the need for a back surgery.  Defense lawyers often blame the need for a back surgery on degenerative changes that are unrelated to a car accident.  Many cases involving a back surgery that seemed clearly related to a car accident have been lost due to insurance company lawyers and their doctors arguing that the back surgeries are unrelated to the car accident.  The car accident lawyers at RGPH have litigated dozens of back surgery cases and have successfully cross-examined doctors hired by insurance companies to "independently" evaluate the relationship between car accidents and back surgeries.
