Your back injury may make moving difficult and painful. You may not be in control of your body, much less your day. Yet, you have several important decisions to make and you can be in control of your recovery from a construction accident back injury if you choose to be.
How to Take Control
You can control your physical, legal, and financial recoveries by:
- Getting the medical attention that you need and following your doctor's orders. Talk to your doctor and make sure that you understand what you are supposed to be doing.
- Accepting help from your family and friends. When you give permission for others to help you, you are staying in control of your own life.
- Understanding your legal rights. You can get started by reading our free brochure, Hurt in a Construction Accident? You're Not Alone.
- Protecting your rights. Do not speak directly with your employer or the insurance company about the details of your accident or back injury.
You may not control the final outcome, but you can control the process so that you can recover to the maximum extent possible.
Being in Control Doesn't Mean Doing Everything Alone
You may have been the only one injured on your Babylon, Hempstead, or other Long Island construction site. You may be the only one in pain, but that doesn't mean that you are alone in your recovery. You have the right to get medical attention, you have the ability to rely on your friends and your family, and you can contact a construction accident lawyer to help you with your legal and financial recoveries.
