Do Not Wait To Get Help With Neck And Back Injuries

The Law Office of Donald W. Bedell is one of New Jersey’s toughest and most effective personal injury firms. We handle the toughest cases, including neck and back injuries, which can cause a lifetime of profound disability.

Common Neck And Back Injuries

The neck and vertebrae are major components of the nervous system. The neck supports the weight of the head and allows the head to perform a wide range of motions. The vertebrae protect the spinal cord and the rest of the back, allowing it to support the weight of the spine. However, your neck or your vertebrae may not be able to perform these vital functions if they get damaged in an accident.

Common Types Of Neck Injuries

These are some of the most common:

  • Whiplash
  • Pinched nerve
  • Ruptured/herniated disc
  • Facet joint injury
  • Neck fracture
  • Neck compression
  • Neck strain
  • Neck sprain

Common Types Of Back Injuries

These are some of the most common:

  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Herniated disc
  • Bulging disc
  • Slipped disc
  • Ruptured disc
  • Radiculopathy
  • Radiating pain/numbness/pin and needles
  • Spinal cord tear
  • Compression fracture
  • Impingement on nerve root/thecal sac/spinal cord

Depending on the severity of your injury, your symptoms could range from discomfort, ache or pain to radiating pain into an arm or leg and/or numbness (sciatica) to total bodily paralysis and loss of sensation. Your ability to care for yourself and your family, as well as earn an income, will be affected. You may now rely on loved ones and health care workers for everyday tasks like bathing, eating and even getting out of bed.

How Do I Know If I Have A Back Injury?

Here are some of the key signs to watch for:

  • Sharp or sore pain in the upper or lower back
  • Numbness or tingling sensation in the upper or lower back
  • Mobility difficulties (hurts to walk, twist, stand up, sit down, etc.)
  • Bruising and/or swelling
  • Muscle spasms in the spine
  • Pain that persistently lasts for more than a few days

If you experience any of these, seek medical attention immediately.
