The call that you have been dreading has finally arrived. The phone rang, you picked it up, and you were told that your husband was seriously injured in an accident on his New Jersey construction site job. At the moment, he is unable to protect his own physical and financial interests. What should you do?

Go See Your Husband First

The first thing that you need to do is make sure that your husband is getting the medical care that he needs after his construction accident injury. Thus, it is important to get to the hospital quickly and to talk to your husband’s doctors. If you believe that you need a second opinion or that better medical care is available, then you may need to advocate on behalf of your husband. Even if your husband is getting the medical care that he needs, he will still need you there for emotional support and to hear what the doctors are saying about his long term recovery from his New Jersey construction accident injuries.

Once your husband is medically stable, it will be time to think about his long term physical and financial recovery. How will you afford the rehabilitation that his doctors say he needs and that your health insurance won’t cover? How will your bills be paid while your husband is unable to work?
