You likely have a lot of questions after a construction accident leaves you injured and hurt, but there is one question that is more important than the others. There is one question that is going to guide your financial and legal recovery and help you make an informed decision about what to do next. That question is how your case is going to be valued or what it may be worth.

What Is Your Construction Accident Case Worth?

Generally, how much you are able to recover for the injury that you sustained on a New York or New Jersey construction site is going to depend on a variety of factors including:

  • Who is at fault for the accident and whether the accident is covered by workers’ compensation law or personal injury law.
  • The quality of the evidence available in your case.
  • The specific injuries that you sustained including whether or not you are partially or fully disabled.
  • Your medical expenses.
  • Your loss of income including your projected future income loss.

There may also be additional factors that are relevant to the value of your specific case.

You Need More Information

We wish we could give you a number in this article. However, that would be irresponsible and unethical since every construction accident injury is unique and, therefore, so too is every construction accident recovery. Thus, we need to talk to you and get much more information about your potential claim before we give you a more specific idea about what your case may be worth.

To learn more about your case we invite you to read our free informational pamphlet, “Hurt in a Construction Accident? You’re Not Alone” and to contact us directly through this website to schedule an initial consultation about your rights and your potential recovery.
