Amherst Wrongful Death Lawyer

When the negligence of another party or entity causes an accident victim to lose their life, the family members of the deceased may face unimaginable grief. Their deep feelings of loss are often compounded by the injustice of the situation. Their lives will be forever impacted by someone else’s wrongful conduct.

Fatal accidents in Amherst are frequently the result of negligence. When people lose their lives in senseless, violent, and preventable accidents, their close family members may lose far more than companionship and connection. The loss of a close relative is one of the greatest challenges a person may face in their lifetimes. The wrongful death of a family member can also have financial repercussions for the people they leave behind.

If a person sustains fatal injuries in an accident and must be hospitalized to undergo emergency treatments, their close family members can incur substantial financial losses related to their medical care. When accident victims succumb to their injuries, their close relatives may be required to pay high out-of-pocket costs for funeral services and burial expenses.

Additionally, if bereaved family members relied on the accident victim for monetary support, after their death, they could sustain losses of future expected income. Furthermore, grieving relatives may sustain non-pecuniary damages that are difficult to quantify but have profound impacts on their overall qualities of life. These non-pecuniary damages may include loss of guidance and loss of companionship.

The parents, spouses, children, siblings, grandchildren, and grandparents of wrongfully deceased accident victims who have incurred financial losses as a result of their loved one’s death may be eligible to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault party whose negligence caused their fatal accident. By working with our wrongful death lawyers serving Amherst, eligible family members may be able to recover damages they have incurred as a result of their relative’s passing.

However, unlike people in most other provinces across the country, eligible Amherst residents have only one year in which to begin legal proceedings. If grieving family members do not act within this short twelve-month time period, they will forfeit their only chance to pursue financial compensation for their damages.

Due to this narrow window of time, bereaved relatives face the emotionally challenging prospect of taking legal action at the height of their grief. Because of this, working with our Amherst wrongful death lawyers may be beneficial for grieving family members seeking justice. Our compassionate, sensitive wrongful death lawyers serving Amherst handle the details of our clients’ cases so that they can prioritize their own emotional recovery.
