You already know what happened because of your recent New Jersey construction accident. You know that you are in pain, that you are out of work, and that you have many upcoming medical appointments. You know that your life has changed, so why then does it matter what caused your accident if the damage has already been done?

3 Reasons the Cause of Your New Jersey Construction Accident May Be Important

Even though you already know the effects of your construction accident injury, the cause of the accident may still be important for the following reasons:

  • It may affect your legal recovery. For example, you may be entitled to a workers’ compensation recovery if your employer was responsible for the accident, or you may have a valid personal injury claim if a third party caused your construction accident injuries.
  • It could prevent similar accidents in the future. An accurate understanding of what happened can help prevent similar accidents on your construction site. This may be important to you if you are returning to work, if you care about your co-workers, or if you have a general interest in promoting construction safety in New Jersey.
  • You may want to understand exactly what happened to you. You have suffered a serious injury and you deserve to know why. It may help you heal emotionally from your injuries.

For these reasons, our New Jersey construction accident attorneys are concerned about both the cause and effect of your accident injuries, and we will do our best to help you understand the cause of your injuries and what you may be able to recover for those injuries.
