Back injuries are the most common workplace injury claims and are also one of the claims most commonly contested. Employers and insurers may dispute that your bad back is work-related or try to downplay the extent of injury to limit your benefits or force you back to work.

The lawyers at Eder Law Firm have over 50+ years of experience representing the injured. We are prepared to aggressively fight to get you all the lawful benefits — medical treatment, temporary pay and the permanent disability award you may deserve. The Eder Law Firm has handled hundreds of back injury claims, including:
We know that a person with a back injury may look fine, and even walk normally, but experience significant pain when attempting to perform routine tasks. We know that back injuries may relate to an on-the-job accident (a fall, a vehicle accident, carrying a heavy object) or from a repetitive stress injury that may develop from the routine twisting, bending and lifting at the job. We can help prove that the injury is directly related to your workplace duties.
You should report any accident or back pain, however minor, to your employer, and request treatment, if necessary. If you need medical treatment, New Jersey Workers' Compensation law limits your treatment to medical providers authorized by the employer or its workers' compensation insurance company. The use of non-authorized medical providers may result in you being personally responsible for bills for unauthorized treatment. If you are being denied treatment, call the Eder Law Firm.
