My husband died in a construction accident and his employer says he will take care of me. Should I trust him?
You should be cautious about trusting him. As sympathetic as the employer may be to your situation if your husband was killed on an Eastchester, Bay Ridge, or other New York City construction site, it is important to remember that you and your husband’s employer have competing interests. Even if you are both grieving your husband’s death, you are making sure that your family is protected financially, and your husband’s former employer is making sure the accident doesn’t cost his company any more than necessary.
