Your life fell apart the day your loved one’s ended in a Milwaukee drunk driving accident. As much as you want to go back in time to keep your loved one off the road—or better yet, to keep the other driver from drinking—you know that is not possible. Instead, you now have the seemingly impossible task of figuring out how to continue living.
You Need to Take Care of Yourself and Your Family
The exact steps that you will need to take are unique to your goals and family situation. However, in general it is important to protect yourself:
- Emotionally: It is important to take care of yourself during this difficult time. For some people this may mean talking to your friends, talking to a counselor, taking time off of work, or joining a support group.
- Financially: The loss of your loved one may not only be an emotional loss but also a financial loss for your family if you are adjusting to life without your loved one’s income or if your family incurred significant medical or funeral expenses.
- Legally: You may have legal rights to a recovery for a certain amount of time after the accident.
Only you know how best to help your family, and you make no commitment by contacting a Milwaukee wrongful death lawyer. However, a lawyer can help you answer questions and make an educated decision about whether or not to pursue a claim.
