I felt pressured to work faster at my construction job so that we could finish the project sooner. I took shortcuts due to the pressure and I was injured. Can I recover for my injuries even if they occurred because of the shortcuts I took? Should I call a New York construction attorney for help?
We are sorry to hear of your construction accident injuries. New York workers’ compensation law allows New York construction workers to recover damages if they are hurt on a construction site for any reason. That includes compensation if you are injured after taking a safety shortcut to save time regardless of why you took the shortcut.
In some cases, the insurance company that is responsible for paying you damages such as medical expenses and lost income may fight against your fair and just recovery. It can be difficult and frustrating to fight against the insurance company for the recovery that you deserve when you have been hurt and you are trying to recover from your physical injuries.
Accordingly, it is important to contact an experienced New York construction accident lawyer for help. You might not get a second chance at a fair recovery. Your New York construction lawyer will fight hard to get you the fair and just recovery that you deserve, even if it was your shortcut that caused your injury.
