COPING WITH AN INJURY OR LOSS
Your life can be forever altered in an instant. It is difficult to understand the role that an injury or tragic loss plays in one’s life until you find yourself dealing with one. Dealing with the life changing consequences of a serious injury or death can be one of the most difficult times in a person’s life. The dramatic alteration of your everyday life due to an injury or death paired with your existing obligations to family and work can be overwhelming. Dealing with an injury, doctor’s appointments and now new-found legal issues, as well as, the “living” part of life can become even more complicated.
