Spinal Injury Cases: One of the most common injuries the attorneys at Gill and Chamas see are neck and back injuries resulting from all types of accidents such as automobile accidents, slip and fall, falls from elevation, as well as other accidents that occur on construction sites or in the work place. When clients injure their spine they seek multiple forms of treatment such as surgery, fusions, injections and physical therapy.
What is a spinal fusion? A Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure used to correct problems with the small bones in the spine (vertebrae). It is essentially a “welding” process. The basic idea is to fuse together two or more vertebrae so that they heal into a single, solid bone. This is done to eliminate painful motion or to restore stability to the spine.
The attorneys at Gill and Chamas have over 200 years of combined experience handling personal injury cases that involve neck, back and spinal injuries. The staff uses state of the art technology, anatomical models and diagrams to give the best possible visuals for the jury to understand the significance on the injuries.
Peter Chamas recently recovered $1.4 Million for a woman who was involved in a collision on the Garden State Parkway. The plaintiff was driving northbound when a construction vehicle pulled out from the right shoulder, across four lanes of traffic and struck the woman’s vehicle on the right side. The accident left the plaintiff with both neck and back injuries that required cervical and lumbar fusions as well as arthroscopic surgery to repair her rotator cuff. The fusions provided some relief but did not completely relief them. Suit was filed in Ocean County Superior Court.
