Back & Neck Injuries

Elizabeth NJ Personal Injury Lawyers

Those who have suffered injuries to the neck and back often experience severe and sometimes permanent loss as a result. The lawyers at our firm have helped many clients make up for some of this loss by helping them recover monetary damages by filing a claim.

Injuries to the neck and back can involve muscles and ligaments of the spinal column, along with other joints and tissues. They can be caused by repeated small injuries, poor posture, or improper lifting or bending techniques. By far, however, the most severe neck and back damage occurs in car accidents, falls, and occupational accidents.

Because the back and neck are complex structures, quick and abrupt forces can tear soft tissues, injure the discs between vertebrae, or even compromise the spinal cord to cause debilitating pain or paralysis. The more severe back and neck injuries include: spinal cord injury, slipped or herniated discs, compression fractures, and whiplash.

Serious and long-term back and neck injuries can mean enormous bills for emergency treatment, medical examinations, surgeries, therapy, rehabilitation devices, and prescription pain relievers. Worse, the injuries may make it impossible for the victim to work, resulting in loss of income. The physical pain and economic pressures may also bring on depression, psychological trauma, and other impairments that affect the quality of life.

If your back or neck was injured in a car accident, a violent crime, or an accident in a public space or work environment, you may be able to recover the cost of your medical treatment, lost wages, and other losses. We would be happy to review your case and advise you on your best course of action. To schedule a consultation, call 1-833-RINALDO or fill out our contact form.
