Lumber Spine Fracture

San Jose Lumbar Compression Fracture Attorneys

The lumbar spine, or the lower back, is one of the most common areas where fractures of the spine occur. Spinal fractures may also occur in the thoracic, or midback, and at the connection of the two sections – called the thoracolumbar junction. These fractures are often caused by severe trauma from auto accidents, fall accidents and other high-energy accidents. Victims of these injuries typically require extensive medical treatment and therapy.

This treatment is expensive and victims of lumbar spine fractures deserve to be compensated by those who are responsible for their accidents. At the San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos, our lawyers have more than 75 years of combined experience representing the victims of accidents in the California Bay Area. If you or someone you love has suffered a lumbar fracture, talk with us about your options for recovery.

San Mateo Lumber Spine Fracture Attorneys

There are several different types of spinal fractures, and doctors classify these fractures based upon the pattern of the injury. In the lumbar spine, these fractures can include:

  • Compression fractures
  • Axial burst fractures
  • Flexion and distraction fractures
  • Transverse process fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Fracture-dislocations

It is often difficult to correctly assess the extent of these injuries without X-rays and a thorough physical examination. The treatment of these injuries may require surgery and months of physical therapy to repair.

Client Reviews
I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos 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! Agatha
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. Jerry
Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did. Cindy C.

I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
