Is Drug or Alcohol Use by a Coworker Relevant to My New York Construction Accident Injury Case

Q
Is drug or alcohol use by a coworker relevant to my New York construction accident injury case?
A

If you suspect, or know, that your coworker was under the influence of drugs or alcohol on your job site, then it is important to talk about it with an experienced New York construction accident lawyer. It could be relevant to your case and to your possible recovery of damages.

Generally, the fact that someone else was under the influence of drugs or alcohol may be relevant to your recovery if that person’s actions or inactions contributed to the accident that injured you, to a delay in getting you medical care, or if that person was otherwise involved in the construction accident or your injury.

An experienced New York construction accident attorney will investigate your claim and advise you as to how the information may be relevant to your case. The earlier that you raise your concerns with your attorney, the better, as evidence may be more difficult to collect as time goes on.
