Spinal Fracture

Oakland Spinal Cord Fracture Attorneys

Unlike a broken bone in the arm or leg, a fracture of the vertebrae in the spine can damage nerves and the spinal cord, resulting in sensory loss and paralysis. Following car accidents, slip-and-fall accidents and other serious accidents, spinal fractures can cause debilitating damage that may require surgery and other extensive medical treatment. Conditions such as paraplegia and quadriplegia may last a lifetime.

In order to get the compensation that you need to pay for present and future medical costs, lost wages and other expenses related to your accident, it is important that you speak with an attorney. At the San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye & Fitting, our lawyers have more than 75 years of combined experience representing individuals who have suffered spinal fractures in the San Francisco Bay Area.

San Mateo Spinal Fracture Attorneys

Spinal fractures and other spinal cord injuries can range from mild to severe. Spinal fractures generally fall into one of those three categories:

  • Fractures: When enough pressure is put on a vertebrae, it can shatter and collapse. If the pressure is great enough, it can even send fragments of bone into the spinal canal.
  • Dislocations: If the discs connecting vertebrae together or the ligaments of the spine are stretched or torn, the bones can come out of alignment, causing instability and spinal cord compression.
  • Fracture-dislocations: When a bone is broken and the ligaments are torn, fractures tend to be debilitating and unstable, requiring surgery to repair.

Spinal fractures can occur in any area of the spine, including the cervical, thoracic, lumbar,sacral or coccyx areas. Our firm can ensure that your injuries are properly reviewed and can pursue the full range of damages that you need for your recovery.

    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.
