What to Do First When Your World Has Been Destroyed by a Milwaukee Wrongful Death Accident

You can’t imagine picking up the pieces of your life and moving forward. You can’t imagine things ever being okay again—and you don’t know how to get resume your life after the person whom you love has been killed in a Milwaukee accident. Yet, as you look into the faces of your children, your parents, or others whom you love and as you think about what your loved one would have wanted for you, you are forced to consider the future.

Don’t Let the Future Overwhelm You

You do not have to make every decision about your future today. Instead, you need to focus on the things that are really important right after the death of a loved one, and you need to ask for help for those things that can’t wait. For example, you might consider:

  • What your children, or other close relatives, need. If you have children, parents, or other dependents who are suffering, then it is important to think about what they need right now. Do they need to get back to their regular schedules as soon as possible? Do they need someone to talk to?
  • Talking to your boss. Everyone grieves differently. You may be ready to go back to work quickly. You may need a flexible schedule for a while or you may need some time off. It is important to communicate your needs to your boss so arrangements can be made.
  • Accepting help from family and friends. Allow others to help with meals, cleaning, and the other day-to-day tasks of life so that you can concentrate on only the things that really need your attention.

There will be time to make the other decisions. When you are ready to think about filing a wrongful death claim, you won’t have to do it alone.
