A Vancouver truck wreck took the life of someone dear. Why are you so angry at the survivors?

A recent Vancouver truck wreck claimed the life of someone dear to you.

You have been struggling ever since to pick up the pieces and make sense of the awful event. As much as you want to be rational about what happened, however, some of your emotions and impulses are downright irrational. For instance, you may be feeling anger and jealousy toward the accident victims who survived the crash. Why did the truck driver who caused the wreck survive, while your loved one did not?

First, if you have had “awful” thoughts to that effect, appreciate that those thoughts are perfectly natural, even though they feel uncomfortable. Different people experience grief in different ways. While you need to control your actions to make sure you do not offend people—or potentially complicate your Vancouver truck wreck case—you are only human, and you have experienced a devastating loss.

The truth is that a Vancouver truck wreck tends to “favor” truckers over motor vehicle drivers. Trucks are much more massive than other vehicles, so they tend to survive accidents better.

Dealing with Your Anger, Frustration, and Other “Post-Accident Emotions”

It is only natural to feel intense emotions after a crash. One antidote is knowledge about what to do next. Right now, your life and your family’s lives are likely in chaos because of the Vancouver truck accident.

The more you understand what to do and what not to do, legally speaking and otherwise, the more in control you will feel, and the less you will feel plagued by uncomfortable emotions.
