What You Should Know About Neck Fusions After A Car Accident
An IL car accident can lead to you being completely healthy to undergoing a neck fusion, unable to work for months.
Looking for neck fusion settlement amounts online can be misleading or underestimated.
Every person’s past medical history is different. Neck injuries requiring neck fusions can be permanent and prevent you from returning to work after a car accident. You may need only one neck surgery or six surgeries because every person and potential injury case is different.
Do you need to hire a lawyer for your neck fusion surgery as a result of car accident in IL?
If you settle an injury claim in Illinois without consulting and hiring a lawyer, you risk underestimating the amount recoverable for your injuries. Once you settle, there is no going back. Any agreed to settlements in Illinois can rarely be undone. This is true even if you later learn you need a 2nd, 3rd, or 6th neck fusion.
Additional surgeries are needed due to more disc herniation, spine instability, and or years of post-surgical rehabilitation. Additionally, there is a 35% chance of a neck fusion needing to be repeated and a 60% chance of neck pain for the rest of your life.
Call snow, turn sure you don’t underestimate the value of your potential neck fusion surgery arising from a car accident that was not your fault.
