We deal with many families of the victims of fatal motor vehicle accidents and the journey of grief is a very difficult and personal one. It is not the same for any two people because it is as unique as a person’s life and their relationships. How a person approaches this unfortunate but inevitable part of life can make the difference between meaningless pain and the manifestation of understanding and wisdom.
As lawyers we assist the victim’s family with financial compensation from the wrongdoer’s auto insurance company to put the victim’s family back in the position they would have been without the loss of their loved one, as well as providing monetary compensation for “bereavement.” However, this total financial compensation deals with the practical aspects of life and yet, dealing with the grief is the most difficult part and the most personal part.
