Spinal 3D Animation Assists in Securing $885,000 Settlement in Car Collision Case

Animated Surgical Walkthrough Elucidated Complex Procedure

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 after an 18-wheeler was run off the road after its tire blew. The plaintiff 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.

Utilizing 3D Animation to show the complexities of Spinal surgery.

During the start of the procedure, a lateral annulotomy was made using a scalpel. Bringing the 3D 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 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 prone. 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.

In a time of crisis, being human-first isn't a luxury, but a requirement. Wheather B2B or B2C at the core, all brands need to reflect inward.
