Getting on in This World Without My Husband

by admin

I never thought I would raise my children on my own. My husband and I had so many plans, so many dreams that we wanted to achieve. None of them can ever come true now because he was accidentally killed at his work site. He is in construction, and it was just a freak accident. I never thought anything like this could ever happen, but I suddenly found myself in a world without him. It did not take me long to know that I needed to find a personal injury attorney in Sacramento who handles wrongful death suits because his company thought that his company provided life insurance policy was payment enough for his death.

I know they probably did not mean to be insensitive like that, but that was such an insult. My husband’s death did not just make me a widow. It also left four children without a father. I was a stay at home mom, and I was not prepared to enter the work force to take care of my family. They needed me at home with them during this impossible adjustment period. His life insurance policy would have provided for us for a few years, but that was not good enough for me.

If it was just me, I would have accepted it. However, his children deserve much better than that. If they cannot have their father, I am going to make sure they have their mother, the education that we both want for them, and everything else that their father would have provided for them if he was still here. It is still not enough, not by a long shot, but there is just no way to bring him back. Instead, we will rely on the attorney to help us get what we need to get through this as best as we can.
