After any wrongful death—whether a Milwaukee drunk driving accident or a Green Bay medical malpractice case—the family of the victim may feel overwhelmed with anger, depression, stress, and grief. This is both understandable and normal. But, if these feelings continue, wrongful death victims should consider talking about their feelings with a professional therapist.
It is always difficult to deal with the emotional aftermath of a death, even when the death is expected. In cases of wrongful death, where the loss of a loved one is both unexpected and due to a negligent act, the loss can be very hard to accept. Family members may feel angry, guilty or in need of answers and accountability.
Some people are able to share their feelings with family and friends. Others feel that their family members just don’t understand, or they know that their family is also struggling and don’t want to add to the burden. Counseling can provide a safe place to talk about your grief. If the grief becomes overwhelming, a therapist can help you find ways to cope.
Signs that you could benefit from counseling after a Wisconsin wrongful death:
- You feel isolated.
- You find yourself avoiding people and spending time alone.
- Your loss is all you can think about and you are unable to focus on the present.
You didn’t have control over your loved one’s death. However, you can control how you handle the situation. A counselor can help you adapt to your emotions and get through the grieving process. A Wisconsin wrongful death attorney can help you seek justice and accountability. To learn more, contact Hupy and Abraham at 800-800-5678.
