Valuing Car Illinois Accident Cases Involving Back Injuries

If you suffer a back injury in an Illinois car accident, you will probably wonder very quickly what your case would be worth if you filed a lawsuit. Of course, there are some common dimensions to all kinds of injury cases, and you can read all about those here: What Is My Car Accident Case Worth? However, here are some important facts to consider for back injuries in particular and how they might influence your future recovery in a suit:

  • Surgery for back injuries, such as a lumbar fusion, may cost as much as $100,000.
  • Recovery time from a procedure to fix back injuries may take as much as three months.
  • Surgery to correct back problems might result in significant nerve damage as well as long-term pain and limited movement.
  • Many patients still undergo extensive rehabilitation efforts after corrective surgeries.
  • Lawsuits involving back injuries from car accidents recover more than $100,000 on average.

Back injuries are one of the most catastrophic injuries you can experience from a car accident. Very quickly, they can completely alter your life and require significant modifications to compensate for the harm. The costs alone to correct them can quickly add up. Surgery, medications, rehabilitation, and follow-up examinations cost a lot of money. 

Also, even with this medical care, you still might have to miss a lot of work and experience ongoing pain. Traditionally, this is why you see a lot economic compensation in back injury cases (for medical care, loss of income, etc.) but also some compensation for pain and suffering because there is a reduced quality of life in many instances.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia, Avvo User
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa, Avvo User
