Edmundston Wrongful Death Lawyer


Losing a close family member is never an easy process. Our loved ones are inextricably tied to our senses of identity. Losing a family is, in a way, just like losing a part of ourselves. Recovering from such an emotionally difficult death can take time. It could be months or even years before grieving family members feel prepared to move on with their lives. However, if their relative’s death was the result of someone else’s negligence, bereaved family members may have only a short time in which to take action.

That is because, in this province, there is a two-year limitation on wrongful death claims. That means that family members whose close relatives were killed in an accident caused by someone else’s wrongful conduct, they have only two short years in which to begin legal proceedings. In many situations, this means that bereaved family members are required to start their pursuit of justice and accountability at the height of their grief, or forfeit their one opportunity for restitution.

When people’s lives are suddenly, senselessly, and violently ended in preventable accidents caused by another party or entity’s negligence, no amount of money will be able to heal the emotional wounds inflicted upon their close relatives. However, during their last days of their lives and in the tragic wake of their deaths, close family members of wrongfully deceased individuals frequently incur substantial financial losses. Grieving family members are often forced to pay expensive out-of-pocket costs related to medical expenses prior to their loved one’s death, as well as funeral expenses, and burial fees after they are gone.

Additionally, bereaved relatives often incur future monetary losses related to their deceased family member’s anticipated future earnings. Grieving relatives could also very likely incur non-economic damages for less easily quantifiable losses, including loss of guidance and loss of companionship.

The grieving family members of a wrongfully deceased accident victim may endure the emotional and financial repercussions of someone else’s negligence for years following their death. Negligence occurs when someone fails to fulfill the duty of care they legally owe to other people. Through a number of wrongful actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or violations of local laws, the people who fail to take reasonable precautions to protect the safety of others could cause family members to endure a lifetime of pain. When their lack of consideration, caution, and foresight leads to another person’s death, the people who have shirked their duties of care could be considered negligent. If so, they may be liable for damages incurred by their family members as a result of their wrongful demise.
