I think the cause of my construction accident injury is unique and unusual. Will that harm my recovery?
Probably not. The unique cause of your Westchester construction accident injury is unlikely to prevent your fair recovery. Many construction accident injuries result from falls and machinery accidents, which are typically more straightforward for a recovery claim. But unique and unusual work accidents are not excluded from workers’ compensation or personal injury claims. When you’re hurt while on the job, you have a right to compensation!
The Law Applies Evenly
Fluke accidents happen. Maybe nobody could have predicted that what happened on your construction site would result in an accident or injury. It doesn’t matter. The law allows you to recover damages in a workers’ compensation case if you have been hurt in the course of your employment and possibly through a personal injury lawsuit if a third party (other than you or your employer) was responsible for your injuries.
Don’t Let the Issues Get Confused
You don’t want to risk your recovery by letting the strange, unique, or even downright weird cause of your Westchester construction accident get in the way of your fair recovery. Instead, it is important for you to understand your rights and how to protect them.
