Your life is much different now that you have lost a loved one in a drugged driving crash or a drunk driving accident in Georgia. Your thoughts, concerns and interests probably have changed. Coping with your loss may take all of your time and energy. However, there are ways to help you cope with your loss, as many families of drunk driving victims have learned.

Here are some ways that might help you to better cope with your loss:

  • Do something constructive. Many people have found that they feel better if they actively seek to help others, or if they participate in organizations that seek to stop drunk driving. You may consider becoming involved with a local school, community center, or an organization like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). 
  • Connect with other families of Georgia drunk driving victims. When you can talk with someone else who understands what you are going through, you may start to feel better by sharing common feelings.
  • Get involved with a local MADD chapter. By being around people who share similar goals and values or who have lost someone they love to a drunk driving accident in Georgia, you could gain an instant network of support.
  • Tell the story. You may find it helpful to come to grips with your new reality if you tell and re-tell what happened to your loved one. Talking through the details is often therapeutic and helps prevent you from bottling up your emotions.

By learning these coping strategies, you may also be able to help someone else in the future.

In addition to these coping strategies, families of Georgia drunk driving victims should seek financial damages to help them get justice.
