Many well-meaning people may have been giving you lots of advice since you lost a loved one in a recent accident. They want what is best for you, even if their advice is overwhelming and sometimes conflicting. What should you do? How should you make decisions when shock and grief are making it difficult to think straight?
Keep One Goal in Mind as You Concentrate on Your Future
Before you make any decisions about what to do after the death of a spouse, parent, or child, it is important to ask yourself one question. That question is, “Will the outcome of this decision matter to me later?” If the answer is yes, and if you can imagine that the decision you make is going to impact your life in a few months or a few years, then it is important to carefully weigh your options. For example, whether you pursue a Virginia wrongful death case may have a lasting impact on your life. However, other decisions such as what readings to include at the funeral or which charity to donate your loved one’s belongs to are important to you now but may not ultimately impact your life in the long term.
