Representation For Work-Related Back Injuries In New Jersey
Among the common injuries faced in the workplace, back injuries stand out as pervasive challenges that impact employees across various professions. Work-related back injuries, ranging from strains to disc issues to paralysis, necessitate a comprehensive understanding of a legal advocate.
Employees handle their professional responsibilities across diverse industries, and at Rosenberg, Kirby, Cahill, Stankowitz & Richardson, we are workers’ compensation attorneys who know that the risk of work-related back injuries still looms large.
As a Toms River legal team comprised of dedicated litigators, we compassionately advocate for clients, working to ensure the most favorable outcomes possible.
Types Of Work-Related Back Injuries
Work-related back injuries can result from poor ergonomics, repetitive motions, heavy lifting, falls from heights, slip-and-falls on the job, machinery accidents, and other types of accidents. Common types of work-related back injuries include:
- Strains and sprains
- Disk problems (herniated or slipped discs, annular tears, ruptured discs)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Injuries resulting in paralysis (quadriplegia or paraplegia)
Treatment for back and spinal cord injuries varies widely. Some injuries can be treated with chiropractic care and physical therapy. Others may require surgery and long-term rehabilitation. For injuries resulting in paralysis, a lifetime of care, medical intervention, and assistive devices are needed.
Back injuries can be very complex and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to treating them. Those who suffer back injuries may be unable to work and live normally until their injuries are treated and pain is minimized.
Injured workers face an often long rehabilitation process. If you have been injured, instead of taking legal matters into your own hands, involve the services of skilled workers’ compensation lawyers to determine the exact cause of your back injuries.
Job Locations Where Workplace Injuries Highly Occur
Workplace injuries take place in various settings, including:
- Construction sites

- Warehouses and distribution centers

Aggravation Of A Preexisting Back Injury
In workers’ compensation cases, this involves proving that the job-related incident substantially exacerbated the preexisting back ailment, justifying compensation for the increased harm.
