New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyer

When you or a loved one have suffered a neck and/or back injury as an accident victim, you need an experienced New Jersey injury lawyer to fight for the benefits you deserve.  At the Law Office of John F. Renner, P.C., we have built a reputation for excellence representing accident victims.  We understand the complexities of New Jersey accident law and aggressively protect your rights.  

Back and neck injuries are among the most debilitating work injuries that a person can suffer. These injuries are the most common type of workers' compensation claim in New Jersey. Injuries to your neck and back can not only cause you to miss work, but they can also change the way you live your life and earn income. An injury to the back or neck can lead to temporary or even permanent disability, which will require long-term benefits from workers' compensation. Injuries to the neck and back are extremely painful and need to be treated immediately and properly by an Orthopedic Surgeon, neurosurgeon or neurologist. These injuries can be the result of specific accidents, such as a slip and fall, motor vehicle accident, a falling object or from lifting a heavy object. These injuries can also be the result of repetitive bending over and lifting.

Herniated and Bulging Discs

A herniated disc is the most common form of serious injury to the back. The spine is made up of vertebrae (bones) and discs. The discs are located between each vertebrae and act like cushions between each vertebra. A herniated disc occurs when the disc ruptures (the nucleus pulposus), protrudes and presses on the surrounding nerves in the backbone. A bulging disc occurs when the disc develops a weak spot and expands beyond its normal area. Though a bulging disc is less severe, it can still cause problems and pain when the weak spot presses on the nerve.

The most common area for herniated and bulging discs is in the lumbar spine (lower back), which is the area between ribs and hips. This type of injury can impinge on the nerves and will cause increased pain in the back, with a radiating pain and numbness that can be felt in the arms, hands, fingers, legs, feet and toes. This radiating pain and numbness is called radiculopathy. Treatment for injuries to the back and neck range from physical therapy to epidural injections to surgery to fuse the bones together.
