Disc Herniation

Many people injured in car and workplace accidents suffer herniated discs without realizing they have been injured or understanding the extent of their injuries. This is because the symptoms of herniated discs are unique. Some people do not suffer any symptoms while others suffer excruciating leg pain, buttocks pain, arm pain, and numbness and weakness in body parts affected by the nerves.

The unique pain (or lack of pain) can prevent people from seeking medical help after their accidents. Yet, if you wait more than two years from the time you realized you were injured or three years from the date of your accident, you will lose any chance you have of bringing a personal injury lawsuit for your herniated disc. Our attorneys are ready to help you now.

Back Fusion

Surgeries are expensive, especially major surgeries like spinal fusion/back fusion. The ensuing months of recovery and rehabilitation can make it difficult for you to earn income, causing greater financial strain.

If your spinal fusion surgery is the result of someone else's negligence, you may be able to recover compensation for your income loss, medical costs, and pain and suffering by filing a personal injury lawsuit with the help of Gillis Law Firm in New Haven, Connecticut. We will work with medical and financial experts to determine the full extent of your injuries and future medical needs, including those caused by your back fusion.

In addition to three decades of experience, we offer risk-free representation with a "no recovery, no fee" policy. Unless we win money for you, you will not pay our fees. Furthermore, initial consultations are free of charge. Contact us by calling 866-603-9810.

Compression Fractures

Compression fractures are serious injuries that often become apparent weeks, even months, after a car accident. They are collapsed vertebrae caused by shock and can lead to serious back pain. While a back brace may be enough to heal some compression fractures, others require surgical intervention and can even cause height loss.

If you have suffered a compression fracture, the attorneys at Gillis Law Firm, in New Haven, Connecticut, can help you recover the compensation you need to get the best medical help possible for your injuries. Whether your injury was the result of a car accident, slip-and-fall, workplace accident, construction accident or some other incident, we're here to help.
