We are New Jersey’s Premier Work-Related Head and Neck Injury Lawyers.
Have You Suffered a Head or Neck Injury at Your Job or Workplace?
Neck pain is a prevalent symptom of many workplace injuries. Any portion of your neck – muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, or nerves – can cause discomfort or pain in your neck. It is also important to understand that other injuries, such as shoulder, jaw, head and even upper arm injuries, can indirectly cause issues in the neck area. These injuries are caused by a wide range of movements, including falls, quick jerky movements, and repetitive motions.
Although people usually associate head and neck injuries with sports or other recreational activities, the fact is that a large percentage of neck injuries are work-related. An overwhelming amount of these injuries occur in the workplace as the results of on-the-job requirements. For example, a quick movement of the head or neck can result in not only whiplash, which causes neck pain and discomfort but also a concussion.

You could have suffered a wide range of injuries, including an undiagnosed neck or head injury, herniated, bulging or degenerative discs, nerve damage, or even a spinal cord injury if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms after being hurt on the job:

Brittany P. Reviews Goldberg & Wolf, LLC
New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
I do a lot of heavy lifting at work, obviously resulting in an injury of some sort sooner or later. I just did not think it would be my neck, and as severe as it actually was. I was left out of work, with little money and hopeless until I contacted Goldberg & Wolf. They helped me get back on my feet and treated me as their equal, making me feel like I was a little less hopeless while in their care.
