Coping With Wrongful Death


The unexpected death of a loved one is traumatic to say the least; if it happens in your family, you might be overwhelmed with emotion, and also questions. A wrongful death can be even worse, since there’s the added trauma of finding out how and why the death happened, and the sense that the death could have been prevented. Shock, disbelief, devastation—all of these feelings are normal, part of the grieving process.

To process a serious loss like unexpected death, there are some proven ways to cope. The first step is understand that grieving is personal and individual, and that everyone experiences it differently. Therapists, support groups, and grief counselors are all excellent sources of help for prolonged grief. But there’s no time length for grieving; some people heal in a few months, others carry some sadness for a long time.

If you’ve lost someone close to you, remember to take care of yourself; sleeping, eating well, exercising—all of these will keep you steady in a crisis. If you have a support system around you (friends, family, neighbors), ask them for help, and accept it.
