My Husband Respected and Genuinely Liked His Employer I'm Not Sure He Would Want Me to Call

Q
My husband respected and genuinely liked his employer. I’m not sure he would want me to call a New Jersey construction lawyer even though he was killed on the job and our family has lost so much. What should I do?
A

We are so sorry to hear about your husband’s death in a recent New Jersey construction accident. Our New Jersey construction lawyers understand that your husband had a good relationship with his employer and would not want his employer to suffer because of his fatal accident. However, we are also confident that your husband loved you and your family, and that he would not want you to suffer financially because of his death.

Accordingly, we encourage you to contact a New Jersey construction accident lawyer to find out more about your family’s rights and how filing a lawsuit may impact your husband’s employer. In many cases your recovery will come from New Jersey worker’s compensation insurance. If the accident was caused by an employer other than your husband’s employer, the third party may be liable. In other words, it is likely an insurance company or someone other than your husband’s employer may be responsible for paying your damages.

To learn more about your rights and what could happen if you pursue a legal claim after your husband’s death, we encourage you to contact an experienced New Jersey construction attorney today at 1-800-362-9329 and to read our FREE information brochure, Hurt in a Construction Accident?
