How to resume driving after a drunk driving accident

Being the victim of a drunk driving accident can be downright traumatizing. Even if you weren't injured, the drunk driver might have suffered injuries or even been killed. This is a traumatic experience for anyone of any age or driving level. Here are some tips you can use to resume driving after being involved in a drunk driving accident in Jefferson.

The biggest piece of advice you will hear from an attorney or a doctor is to talk about the accident. Talk about it as much as possible with family, friends, a therapist, your family physician or anyone who will listen. When you talk about the accident, you lessen the amount of stress and anxiety you suffer from caused by the accident.

When you decide it's time to get back behind the wheel, you should take baby steps. This needs to be treated like you are an athlete recovering from an injury. Drive only on familiar roads that are light in traffic. Drive during the day and make sure you have another licensed driver with you in case you cannot finish the trip.

You need to build your stamina up as a driver again. Slowly begin to drive in heavier traffic areas and on longer trips. You should also drive past the scene of the accident. The more you avoid doing this, the more your anxiety will build and cause you stress.
