Negligence at workplace my husband owner operator lead to his death

by Kim Dolan
(Weatherdord tx)

It seems so unfair to me that a place of employment could treat their employees owner operators like shit.

My husband had several health issues and they knew all about them. He called while in virgina doing a load we live in Texas. They told him to pay down and rest they would call and check on him. Wrong, they never did and he passed away.

They didn't call 911 they didnt call me, my family, nobody. Three days later in had to call them looking for him they lies and said they didnt know he was missing or where he was which is lies they knew. He had GPS all thru out his truck.

It took 8 different state police to find him parked at a rest area deceased after e days he paid there dead and they did nothing help him they are the most cold hearted people inever knew.

How does dispatcher not anyone else involved sleep at night knowing they took a man from his family married 30 yearsbteo boys 8 granchildren one he never even got to meet. How can they get away with such negligence and not even care. He paid so much for insurance weekly to have them tell a he had no life insurance, iras, pension nothing coming to me.

I am a house wife instated home raised our boys and never worked. I have lost everything my home my car my best friend soulmate. He was oyer 50 years old. I cannot stop grieving this happened in January and I just want to be with him .

We were a team he left me behind this is not supposed to have been our life we had so many plans and just like they he was taken from me. They could have saved his life I will always be haunted with why they didnt call for help for him or even call and check in with him.

It was there rule that every one checked in every single day with work or they checked in with the employees. I have nothing now no money no home no car a phone free from the government th st you can not even use it such a piece of carp I had to go on food stamps.

I have nothing he always made sure I had all I needed or wanted. I will never stop til I get justice for him and talk out story this is nothing compared to the rest of it.

He should have never been able to pass a dot physical but they passed him God how in wish they hadnt. Its just not fair he did t have to die I am on heavy anti depressants and anxiety meds now th st are not doing a thing to help me.

I am already dead inside my soul is black my heart is broken I have no feelings any more but sadness or anger. I need help mentally and it doesn't come. I have no money to get help I have nothing inwsnt to wake up from this nigh mare we are suffering so bad.

I can't stand waking up not the mornings when I do sleep I don't eat all I do is cry I am so lonely for him I can't stand this world much longer God forgive me but I am about to be out of this world I begged hintondsne my place and wait for me I am coming soon my live2m sorry to be a downer but I just need someone to hear our story and help is. Cant take another day of this .I am already dead inside...........

As far as his check stubs they day there were dedeictio a for over 300 every so how week but doesn't say to what insurance co pant it was paid to that seems like an awful lot of money to be you g to a place I am in aware of. This had g gotten any easier. I no after being the wife of a trucker for over 2t years that you all are a huge brother and sister family and will do all you can to help fellow truckers and families in need of information that could change our lives still struggling still have nothing where did the 103.000 dollars go besides major break downs on the piece of carp truck he was sold go to. He bought the truck same time as his friend bought his he had never had a problem like my husband did he practically rebuilt the entire truck soon six months of having it. I beg many one of you that had any good advice for me what to so he did t deserve this out dsmumy did rseserce this other people a lives go on each day forgetting about the ones true my in need and suffering. I can't be prouder then to be a part of such a huge so awful family and I out my heart and my straight into trusting someone who had the answer to what do I do when I call his do is my he was signed on with they treat me like I have a disease or something as far as the friend I have not heard a word from him either I assume he is still employed with them. My family is desperate we news help badly I am now on anti depressant anti anxiety sleeping meds theses things are t free I don't understand why when you lose everything over night the Bill's seem to come in faster and harder then ever. I am very thankfuk to each of you for any advice you can give me I am it a lawyer or a business owner just the side of one and I am lost I feel I am letting him down. Why did t they call me why did t they call 911 I miss him so much the pain does not stop does not get easier I beg of anyone for your help in helping put my family on the right track I will not stop until he gets the justice he deserves. He was and still is my everything. I need him so badly he was my everything I feel this depression is getting the best of me I don't even want to get out of bed and is the hoikidays co ing up I have no idea shad I am going to do or how to do it I can only pretend to be happy for so long before I snap and its do ing I lrsy to God every night for my family for your family die us all we all need each other more an you realize. I can't stress enough now I appreciate any help in his to do thud I need to I is what to do. I just want him back so badly I can't stand or I have never felt so alone. I still find myself sleep I g with my phone by my Hess in case he calls. I truelry feel I am going insame and losing control of my life.

Hate you're going through this

I wish I had comforting words for you Kim.

I am glad you are sharing here and it will reach a lot of people but it is not the same as talking face to face with someone during a situation like this. Do you have family that you could talk to?

All I can say is I don't know what the company knew or not maybe you do. If the company actually had fault in his death though a lawyer would be happy to take your case for absolutely no money up front.

So if you believe that somehow the company was responsible, talk to a lawyer and they will explain either why the company is not liable or tell you that they will help you get money.

As far as him having insurance and them saying he didn't that is fishy. If it was coming out he should have it itemized on the check stub. If he does, then the lawyer would be happy to take care of that too. The money doesn't even come from the trucking company it comes from insurance company why would the trucking company say he didn't have insurance.

Kim is your Mother or Father around? Do you have a sister or brother? ARe there any first cousins or close friends that you could talk to about how you feel?
