Compression Fractures

A vertebral compression fracture occurs when the bones of the spine break due to significant trauma. In order to cause a vertebral compression fracture, the amount of trauma required is significant and usually results from motor vehicle accidents, falls from heights and other serious accidents. The most commonly broken vertebrae are those that are in the lower back.

San Mateo Vertebral Compression Fracture Attorneys

Given the amount of trauma necessary to cause a compression fracture, there are a number of consequences that can occur, including:

  • Severe pain in the lower back, upper back or neck
  • Pain in the hip, abdominal area or thigh
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Weakness
  • Compression of the nerves at the fracture site
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control

Medical treatment for a vertebral compression factor can include surgery, as well as extensive rehabilitation. Depending on whether nerve damage has resulted, more therapy may be required to return to normal.

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye & Fitting on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!

    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.
