Back Surgery Settlement — $323,000 Award

Key Details

  • Case Type: Car accident
  • Location: SE Portland, OR
  • Injuries: Disc protrusion at L4–5, requiring lumbar fusion surgery

Case Description

While driving in southeast Portland, our client was forced to stop suddenly by the vehicle in front of him. Despite his quick reaction, the truck behind him, which was towing a heavy trailer, rear-ended his vehicle. This unfortunate incident resulted in a disc protrusion at L4–5, necessitating extensive medical intervention.

Ultimately, our client had to undergo a lumbar fusion surgery due to the severe injuries he sustained in the accident.


In this case, our client faced the obstacle of insufficient insurance coverage to pay for the necessary surgery. Our dedicated team worked assiduously to find a surgeon who would agree to perform the surgery and wait for payment until the case was resolved.


Thanks to Attorney Newlin’s negotiation experience, our team obtained a $323,000 settlement for our client. This settlement not only covered the medical expenses associated with the lumbar fusion surgery but also provided critical support during the recovery process.
