Your spouse was excited to spend the day fishing on Lake Barkley. The weather was good and he was ready to spend the day relaxing with his buddies while they fished for trout or bass. You never expected the phone call that came later that day. You never expected the news that the vacation day your spouse had been eager to spend on the lake—had been the last day of his life.
You and Your Family Are Left Shattered
Nothing is the same. You likely miss your spouse every minute of every day. As you struggle through your grief, it can be hard to think about anything other than how much you miss him. However, it is important for you, and for your kids, that you don’t let your spouse’s death ruin your family financially.
Instead, you should know that if your spouse’s death on Lake Barkley was caused by the negligence of a boat operator, owner, manufacturer or mechanic that you may be able lato recover damages for:
- The medical bills incurred by your husband from the time of the accident to the time of death.
- Funeral expenses.
- Out-of-pocket costs.
- Past, current, and future lost income that your spouse can no longer contribute to the family.
- Pain and suffering.
It can be difficult to recover these damages on your own. The insurance company is going to want to pay you as little as possible to settle your claim, but you don’t have to accept it.
