Welcome to the website and blog for CADIs — those of us who have caused accidental death or injury. Many CADIs feel very alone, but the truth is there are many, many thousands of us. Social isolation plus a lack of good information and support made it much harder for me to cope after my accident. This website is one small attempt to spare others some of the fear, confusion, and loneliness I felt.
I hope readers will write in with their comments, suggestions, stories, and ideas. What has been most helpful to you, or to other CADIs you know? What advice would you offer a friend who accidentally injured or killed someone in a car crash, workplace accident, or sports-related accident? I will add your recommendations to the site, so we can together improve the resources available to CADIs.
If you are a CADI — please reach out for help. If you are a friend or family member of a CADI, thank you for caring. I look forward to hearing from you.
