Spinal Wedge Fracture
San Jose Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
When damage occurs to the spinal cord that results in a compression fracture of the vertebrae, and the compression occurs laterally, it is referred to as a spinal wedge fracture. The affected vertebra looks like a wedge and can often impact adjacent vertebra, causing serious damage to the spine and spinal cord. Spinal wedge fractures require immediate medical attention in order to prevent more serious damage from occurring. Individuals who have suffered spinal wedge fractures in accidents throughout the San Francisco Bay area deserve to be compensated for their damages. At the San Mateo law firm of Galine, Frye & Fitting, our firm has more than 75 years of combined experience dealing with spinal cord and other catastrophic injuries. We can help you pursue the benefits necessary to complete the recovery process.

In cases that are mild to moderate, treatment for a spinal wedge fracture may simply include bracing and bed rest for weeks after the accident has occurred. Of course, going weeks without work often means weeks without wages and many families cannot afford such hardships. In the worst cases, surgery may be necessary, followed by months of physical therapy and rehabilitation. After securing medical treatment, it is important to fully outline that treatment and hold responsible parties liable for compensating victims for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and any future costs related to the accident.
