When traumatic events, such as a construction accident, occur it is not unusual for the person who was injured to forget what happened in the accident. Whether or not you retained consciousness, you were understandably preoccupied with your own physical safety and, likely, pain. Your priority was not finding out what caused the accident or remembering details of the accident, but rather protecting yourself.
That does not preclude your recovery. You may be able to recover damages for your New York or New Jersey construction accident injury even if you don’t have a clear memory of what happened at the accident scene. An experienced construction injury lawyer will help you by investigating what happened at the accident scene, advising you of your rights and advocating for your full and fair recovery.
Your recovery may include compensation for past and future medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, out-of-pocket costs, lost income, and pain and suffering. However, you and your New Jersey construction attorney may have to fight hard to get the recovery that you deserve.
