Back injuries can happen at any type of workplace. They are often the result of lifting, pushing or pulling, twisting, or slipping and falling. They can also occur from spending too much time sitting. Different types of back injuries include strains and sprains, soreness, pinched nerves, muscle spasms, fractured vertebrae or discs that are herniated, slipped or ruptured. In serious accidents, a worker may suffer nerve damage or a spinal cord injury leading to paralysis.
Workers often experience back pain after a work injury. Their mobility becomes limited. They find it hard to move and to perform the duties of their job.

Workers’ Compensation Attorneys for New Jersey Workers
The workers’ compensation system in New Jersey is supposed to help injured workers by paying the costs of reasonable and necessary medical treatment. Injured workers are also eligible to receive partial lost wages if they will be unable to work for some time. After being injured, the worker notifies the employer, who is required to notify the Division of Workers’ Compensation.
Do you need a lawyer for a back injury at work? Employers and their insurance companies can deny claims for benefits. They may challenge the extent of your injuries or claim they were not work-related. They may dispute the need for certain types of testing or treatment. This makes it much more difficult to get the treatment you need so you can recover as much as possible.
That’s why you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to fight for your rights. Employers and insurance companies don’t want you to have a lawyer. That makes it easier for them to use the system to their advantage and deny you the benefits you deserve. They also have lawyers looking out for their best interests.
