I Had to Have My Leg Amputated After a Recent New Jersey Construction Accident I Am Too Young

Q
I had to have my leg amputated after a recent New Jersey construction accident. I am too young to never work again, though I understand that I probably can’t go back to the kind of construction work I was doing. Who is going to pay for the vocational training that I need to pursue another kind of career?
