Spinal Injuries in New Jersey

Spinal Injury Attorney Serving Sussex County and All of Northern and Western New Jersey

Most serious spinal injuries start with whiplash symptoms — sprained back, sprained neck or muscle spasms. Many times, victims go to the emergency room and the doctors only provide minimal treatment: eventually what may really be needed are epidural injections and sometimes surgery.

It happens all the time: My clients thought they had a whiplash injury when they actually suffered a disc injury (such as a bulging disc or a more-serious herniated disc ).

I'm personal injury attorney Francis M. Smith. I understand the complications that people encounter when they try to receive compensation for their spinal and back injuries. To schedule a free consultation to discuss your injury, call 908-233-5800 or send me an e-mail. I represent injured clients throughout counties that include Sussex County, Union County, Morris County and Hunterdon County.

Financial Compensation for Your Spinal Cord or Back Injury

Whether you were injured in a car accident, construction accident, or slip-and-fall on ice, you deserve full and fair compensation. I understand that serious spinal and back injuries are debilitating and can affect more than just your body. I want the insurance company to understand this too.

If you are suffering from herniated discs, disc degeneration, paraplegia, quadriplegia, a lower back or neck injury or any other spinal or back injury, my law office is ready to help.

I am assertive, but respectful with insurance companies. My "civil" approach has yielded outstanding results: I have recovered more than $38,000,000 for my clients since 1996.

Using My Experience to Battle the Insurance Company for You

New Jersey law requires doctors to get certain treatments pre-approved by insurance companies. It is amazing how many reasons an insurance company can find to deny coverage and prevent your spinal injury treatment. I have more than 30 years of experience in the area of personal injury law, including nine years spent working as in-house counsel for two insurance companies. I have battled insurance companies for most of my legal career, and I do it well. If your insurance company is preventing you from obtaining proper testing and treatment for your spinal injury, I will offer the proof that you need it.

It is a rare attorney that is willing to jump in the car and drive across the state to meet with you. But I know that many injured people are now without a vehicle, or the ability to drive. A prescription drug may prevent you from driving. I have a reputation for responding to clients who need me, wherever in New Jersey they are. Call me about your case and I will meet with you wherever it is necessary.
