I install drywall for a living. I hurt my back on my recent job, but my employer is saying he shouldn’t have to pay because it is likely a cumulative injury. Can I still recover damages for my drywall injury in New York City?
Yes, you may still be able to recover damages for your drywall injury in New York City even if your injury was not acute but rather because of the cumulative effect of your work. As a drywaller you are at risk of suffering injuries that are caused by the cumulative effect of your work.
