Dartmouth Wrongful Death Lawyer

Losing a close family member can be one of the most difficult challenges a person faces in their lifetime. Grief is a singular process, unique to each person that experiences it. While the memories of our loved ones may live on inside us, their loss can permeate throughout all aspects of our daily lives.

Grief can be a particularly difficult burden to bear when tragic, unexpected, accidental circumstances take our loved ones from us suddenly and without warning. When another party’s wrongful conduct causes a fatal accident, the consequences of their negligence can reverberate throughout the lives of the victim’s family members for years to come.

While no amount of money will be able to fill the void left by your deceased relative, if their death was the result of another party or entity’s negligence, our Dartmouth wrongful death lawyers may be able to help you recover financial compensation for damages you incurred as a result of their untimely passing.

Some damages our wrongful death lawyers serving Dartmouth may be able to help close relatives recover include:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of guidance or companionship
  • Loss of future earnings anticipated over your loved one’s lifetime
  • Medical costs incurred prior to your loved one’s death
  • And possibly more, if eligible

In Dartmouth, spouses, parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren, and siblings of the deceased accident victim may be eligible to pursue a civil claim for damages. In the wake of a tragic, fatal accident, bereaved husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, daughters and sons, grandmothers and grandfathers often suffer profound emotional and psychological anguish. In addition, their relative’s wrongful death may also cause them to incur substantial financial losses, as well.

There is no roadmap for overcoming grief. It could be argued, in fact, that the loss of a loved one is something one never truly overcomes; instead, close relatives of deceased accident victims must learn how to live with their loss on their own terms. This process can take time. After the tragic death of a family member, you may not feel ready to explore your options for financial compensation for quite a while.

However, in accordance with the province’s Fatal Injuries Act, Dartmouth family members who are eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit have only one year from the date of their passing in which to proceed. If eligible relatives do not begin the claims process within this narrow window of opportunity time limit, they will not be able to pursue a wrongful death claim in the future, and therefore, they will be unable to recover the financial compensation to which they are entitled.

Because of the province’s extremely short statute of limitations on wrongful death claims, family members who wish to seek financial compensation for their losses need to act quickly. For many bereaved family members, this means starting legal proceedings at the height of their grief.
