CAR COLLISION CAUSES SEVERE BACK INJURIES

Attorney Frank Tomeny, of the Tomeny Law Firm, APLC, recently secured an $885,000 settlement for a client who suffered severe back injuries in a car collision. The woman developed symptomatic lateral listhesis that simply would not resolve. This required medical attention and, subsequently, an invasive surgery. Attorney Tomeny reached out to our team to produce a 3D animation of the spinal surgery.

During the start of the procedure, a lateral annulotomy was made using a scalpel. Bringing the animation closer into view, a total discectomy is performed to remove the lumbar disc. The visible end plates are then decorticated of subchondral bone using a combination of added 3D Cobb elevators, endplate rasps, and serrated curettes. The loose disc and endplate material are resected with pituitary rongeurs. A cage packed with cadaveric allograft is then inserted into the interbody space of L3-L4.

The second part of the surgical procedure involved the Plaintiff lying in the prone position. Transitioning into the body, the facet around the right side is removed to manually decompress the nerves in the spinal canal. Similarly, the left facet capsule is removed manually, and the outer portion of the bone is removed. Bone graft was then applied to perform the fusion. Lastly, pedicle screws and rods were placed at L3-L4 to stabilize the back.

Attorney Tomeny has dedicated his practice to representing individuals who have suffered injuries due to wrongful acts or negligence of others. He has successfully obtained numerous favorable settlements and verdicts for his clients, including a $7.7 million in a premises liability case. Dedicated to his profession and community, attorney Tomeny was named as a Super Lawyer, AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell, and is Board Certified in Civil Trial Advocacy by the National Board of Trial Attorneys.
