When you or a family member has been injured or even killed in a drunk driving accident, it can change your life forever. Maybe the wreck caused you to have costly and painful surgery. Maybe you lost a loved one. Maybe you can no longer work in your chosen career.

Whatever the result, those who suffer the consequences of someone else's irresponsible actions in a drunk driving accident often feel resentment and anger after the fact. This is completely understandable and completely reasonable.

There are two main steps that will help you deal with the feelings of anger or resentment after a drunk driving accident. Both of these steps are equally important as you walk the road to recovery as an Atlanta DUI victim.

  1. Do not deny the feelings. It is important to emphasize that feeling anger or resentment after a drunk driving accident is extremely common. How could you not feel this way? It is important to embrace the experience of your resentment as part of the healing process, not deny yourself the chance to feel this way. Post-trauma counseling may help you in this stage. 
  2. Take action to get justice. Making things right can be an important part of the healing process. If you feel like the criminal system did not sufficiently punish the drunk driver who changed your life forever, it is important to know that you may have other legal options in the form of an Atlanta drunk driving injury case to recover financial compensation.
