If you've lost your loved one in an accident, the pain of the loss may become too much to handle on your own. Filing a West Virginia wrongful death claim with the guidance of a personal injury attorney may help compensate for the financial damage done to your family, but the emotional hurt needs to be addressed as well. That's why some people choose to see a grief counselor.
Anybody who experiences loss grieves in his or her own way, and the timeline for grief varies as well. The danger lies in grief not processing in a healthy way, which may cause the bereaved individual to fall into a debilitating depression that lasts for months or even years.
A grief counselor – also known a bereavement counselor – can help you work through your feelings and discuss how your loved one's death has impacted you and your family. A good counselor won't ever minimize your loss or try to make you “get over it” more quickly, but will help you find healthy and productive ways to process your grief.
Some law firms work with grief counselors who help their clients through the emotional process of filing a wrongful death claim. Having a counselor to support you while you move through the trial process can make a big difference in your outlook and your emotional recovery.
