Nothing can prepare you to receive the news that your parent, spouse, child, or other loved one has been tragically killed in an accident or has been the victim of an act of violence. The sudden loss of those who are closest to us can wreak havoc on our emotional, financial, and even physical health as we grieve and even for a long time thereafter. In the complicated entanglement of the different, often contrasting, responses to such a devastating event it can be difficult to fully appreciate the range and scope of its likely effects.
In all likelihood, there will be substantial costs and expenses far beyond those which immediately spring to mind. A funeral alone can cost thousands of dollars, and that is a burden that you should not have to bear if your loved one’s death was caused by the negligent or malicious actions of another.
