Your friend or relative has been hurt in a recent Milwaukee car accident. You want to do everything that you can to help your loved one through this difficult time, but your loved one seems so sensitive right now. You don’t want to say the wrong thing and make things more difficult.
Avoid Saying These Three Things
In our experience, victims of Milwaukee auto accidents want love and support from their friends and family. If tough questions need to be asked they want others such as their doctors, their Wisconsin auto accident lawyers, and the police to ask those questions. Rest assured that we will get the information that we need from your loved one and that you do not need to ask:
- What could you have done to avoid this accident? This implies the accident was your loved one’s fault and could have been avoided if he or she had been a “better” driver.
- Isn’t it time for you to go back to work? This implies your loved one is being lazy.
- Can’t you just push yourself harder? This question suggests that your friend or loved one is exaggerating the injuries received. Recovery after an auto accident in Wisconsin takes time, and every person heals at a different rate.
Not only may these questions anger or upset your loved one, they may also cause your loved one to take actions that ultimately jeopardize his or her health and/or legal recovery.
