Spinal cord stimulation, its costs, and filing a legal claim
People suffering from long term back pain, complex regional pain syndrome or reflex sympathetic dystrophy (also known as RSD), often turn to an operative procedure consisting of implantation of a spinal cord stimulator when more conservative treatment options fail. The process typically consists of placing a device below the skin to deliver electronic currents into the spine as a mechanism to mask a person’s pain. Through spinal cord stimulation, many people are able to successfully reduce the amount of medication they previously required.
The costs associated with the procedure are significant, not to mention the hefty costs typically associated with maintaining the device. Unfortunately, it is a procedure that many construction workers need due to workplace injuries. However, by filing a claim, a person might be able to get these costs covered.
Attorneys representing people who undergo this procedure must retain appropriate expert witnesses to prove the costs associated with the procedure and the costs that follow it. This can result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional recovery in a personal injury case.
The attorneys at Hach & Rose, LLP, have represented multiple clients in the New York area who have undergone this procedure and secured millions of dollars for them. Call our team at 866-LAWS-USA to find out if we can help you pursue such compensation as well.
