Losing a loved one is an emotionally devastating time for anyone. This is worse if a family has lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. Families who have suffered a loss in a Pennsylvania car accident caused by a negligent driver deserve to have their rights protected by an experienced attorney, who is caring and sensitive to their situation. The last thing a grieving family wants to deal with is a complicated lawsuit.
A knowledgeable lawyer is not only a skilled professional who understands the nuances of law, but he or she is also a sensitive individual who knows how to treat clients with dignity, respect and compassion. Many individuals suffering from grief go through the stages of denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. A knowledgeable wrongful death attorney will recognize how the family is handling the loss and determine how to provide the level of support needed.
Individuals who have suffered a serious injury may experience a grieving process as well. Victims of catastrophic injuries often grieve the loss of the life they have lost. It may take a long time for an injury victim to fully understand how to adjust and adapt to life’s new challenges.
Joel Feldman, a partner at Anapol Weiss, has personal experience going through the grieving process after losing his 21-year-old daughter in 2009. He understands the emotional challenges of losing a loved one and he knows how to help a family get fair compensation for their loss. Feldman is also pursuing a Masters degree in counseling.
Whether it is dealing with a client or talking to a member of a community, at Anapol Weiss, we believe that having a better understanding of loss and improving listening skills can help us provide empathetic support to those who need it most.
