It was the call that you feared every single day, regardless of how long you’ve been married or how long your husband had safely worked construction jobs. The person on the phone was telling you that your luck had run out and that your husband had been seriously injured on a New Jersey construction site. You may be afraid of what will happen to your husband, and to your family while your husband is out of work. However, you are not helpless.

Five Things You Should Do If Your Husband Has Been Hurt in a NJ Construction Accident

As you and your husband begin the road to recovery together, it is important to:

  • Watch your husband’s physical symptoms closely. If anything changes then it is important to go back to the doctor.
  • Get good medical care. Good medical care will help manage your husband’s pain, prevent further injury and maximize his physical recovery.
  • Not let your husband return to work/regular responsibilities before he has medical clearance. Your husband may, understandably, be eager to put this whole thing behind him. However, he risks further injury to himself if he doesn’t follow his doctor’s orders.
  • Watch what you and your husband say to anyone about the accident. What you, or your husband, say to an insurer, to an employer, or to a third party may later be used against you.
  • Get good legal advice. Then you won’t have to guess about whether your husband’s legal rights and possible recovery are being protected.

Together, you and your husband can get through this difficult time.
