The aftermath of an accident in which an innocent person is seriously injured or killed is one of the very worst times in the lives of the victim and his or her family members. The thing that makes your situation different from dealing with a disease or a death from natural causes is the fact that your tragedy wasn't an "Act of God" or "fate". Somebody else acted irresponsibly and you and your family have to pay the price. Somebody did this to you.
Dealing with the loss of a loved one, dealing with the physical pain and medical procedures of an injury and all the hassles and indignities that go along with that is bad enough. Most of us have had to endure these things at some point in our lives. But, throw in the fact that someone did this to you by acting negligently, and a whole new world of emotions and factors come into play that make your situation even more difficult to deal with.
Everyone you know has "helpful" advice about what you should do. Everyone "knows a guy" who can help you. The insurance company for the person who caused the accident is calling you, sending you forms to sign and asking to interview you.
Who do you trust? Whose advice should you follow? What if the party that caused the accident is ignoring you? How do you get their attention and let them know they'll be called to account for what they've done?
Lots of people have been in your position. Some have gotten the right advice, made the right choices and come out the other side of their ordeal with their integrity, self-respect and economic future intact. Others have not.
The choices you're about to make are very, very important. Please take the time to learn what you need to know to make the right choices. This website is designed to provide much of that information.
