There are moments when you don’t want to get out of bed, much less face the rest of your life without your spouse, your parent, or your child. The grief is too intense, the mourning is too fresh, and the reality is too harsh. Those who want to help you may surround you, or you may face responsibilities or demands that go on even after your loved one’s death. Our Missouri wrongful death lawyers understand how hard things are right now and want to help you focus on the three things that really have to be done soon after your loss.
The First Three Things to Do After a Fatal Missouri Car Accident
Once the funeral is over, we want you to focus on:
- Getting emotional and practical support for you and your family. You deserve to focus on yourself and on your grief. You should not have to be interrupted for the everyday tasks of cleaning your home, cooking food, or returning phone calls. Instead, allow your family, friends, and neighbors to help you with these tasks.
- Getting financial support for you and your family. You may be entitled to a legal recovery if the fatal accident was caused by someone else’s negligent or deliberate actions. An experienced Missouri wrongful death lawyer can help you protect your rights and your possible recovery.
- Honoring your loved one’s memory. A Missouri wrongful death case can help you get the resources that you need to honor your loved one’s memory and to hold the person who killed your loved one accountable.
Of course, every situation is different, and every family must decide what to do during this difficult time.
