I Was Hurt in a New York City Construction Accident I Am Able to Work Part Time in a Less

Q
I was hurt in a New York City construction accident. I am able to work part time in a less physically demanding job and I have found such a job. If I take it will I still be able to recover for my accident injuries?
A

Probably. You will likely still be able to recover damages if you take a part time job after your construction accident injury that results in a lower income than you had prior to your accident. If you were hurt at work and you are no longer able to do the job that you once did then your life has probably changed. You may have medical bills or rehabilitation costs, for example. You may be unable to make the same income that you were making when you worked full time on construction sites.

The specific types of damages that you may be able to recover depend on what happened that caused your injury. If there was no negligence involved then you may be able to recover for your lost income and medical expenses. However, if your employer or a third party was negligent and your injury was a result of that negligence, then you may also be able to recover for your pain and suffering. Either way, it is important to contact an experienced New York construction injury lawyer for a case evaluation and for more information about your legal rights and possible recovery.
