Spring is a time of new beginnings in Westchester County in more ways than one. As the kids hit the baseball fields, the days become longer, and the flowers begin to bloom, the demand for Westchester County construction tends to increase.
Should Everyone Go Back to Work?
Many Westchester County construction workers eagerly look forward to this time of year when there is work available again. However, construction workers who have previously been hurt in accidents may face a difficult decision. Some may wonder if they should push themselves to go back to work to take advantage of the increased demand for their labor or wait a little longer before reentering the workforce.
While it is easy to understand the conflicting emotions, and the desire to get back into the workforce, it is important that a previously injured construction worker talk to his doctor about this decision. A Westchester County construction worker who goes back to work too soon could risk further physical injury that ultimately keeps him out of the workforce even longer than he otherwise would've been out.
There Is Help Available for Westchester County Construction Workers Who Can't Work
Often, the desire to go back to work has more than one component. A construction worker may be bored or tired of being at home and the construction worker may need money. Injured construction workers should understand their rights and know that workers' compensation law and/or personal injury law may help them recover for their lost income.
