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...........

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?
