Pressures People Face

When you lose a loved one in a wrongful death accident injury, you may feel vulnerable and devastated, financially and emotionally. If you lost a spouse, you may be wondering how you'll survive without his or her income. And you may not be able to work due to being overwhelmed with grief.
