HOW YOU CAN HELP A LOVED ONE AFTER AN AUTO ACCIDENT
3 Tips That Go a Long Way
Car accidents happen to the best of us. If you haven’t been involved in a car accident, chances are you know someone who has — a family member, a friend, or a neighbor. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2015, there were an average of 17,250 car accidents per day in the U.S. That’s over 6.2 million for the year. These numbers have been climbing in recent years. If someone you know is involved in an auto accident, one of the best things you can do is simply be there for them. Being there for someone who has been in an accident —major or minor — can make a world of difference in their recovery. Drive them to appointments. After an accident, they may or may not have regular access to a car. This means that they may need help getting to doctor appointments, meetings with their attorneys, or getting groceries. Offer to take them where they need to go, and let them know you’re there for them in their time of need. Spend time with them. The days, weeks, and sometimes months following an auto accident can be exhausting. The person involved in the accident may not have the energy or desire to get out and do things. Spending extra time with
them at home ensures an ongoing social life without the overexertion. It can be as simple as watching a new Netflix show and ordering a pizza. Bring them food. Again, life immediately following an accident is exhausting, not to mention stressful. When you’re spending time together, offer to order in, make them a healthy meal (with a few days’ worth of leftovers), or go all-out and help themmeal plan for the days and weeks ahead. They may not have the time or energy to think about food, but it’s a necessity.
