It is hard to understand everything that has changed since that day on the Jersey City construction site that changed everything. It is hard to comprehend the full impact of losing your arm. In the days and weeks following the accident, your primary concerns were likely your urgent medical needs and adjusting to the physical limitations of your new condition. While these concerns will be ongoing, you may now also be focused on financial concerns. More specifically, you may be worried about paying your mortgage and your monthly bills.

You May Need a Fair and Fast Financial Recovery

The last thing that you need is for your fair financial recovery to be delayed after a construction amputation injury. In order to get the recovery that you deserve in a timely manner, it is important to know:

  • How to pursue your claim. Some claims should be brought through the worker’s compensation insurance system while others may be personal injury cases. It all depends on exactly what happened to you at the time of the accident.
  • What to say and how to say it. If you are negotiating with an insurance company then the insurance company is going to need certain information about what happened on your Jersey City construction site and about your injuries. However, you don’t want to provide too much information that could be misinterpreted and lead to a denial of your claim or a reduction of your fair recovery.
  • When to get help. You have enough on your plate right now. You do not need the stress of playing games with your own recovery. It is too important. Instead, you can get help from an experienced lawyer who knows how to prevent unfair delays in the recovery process.

A fair recovery may help compensate you for your medical expenses, lost income and possibly your other costs.
