Fredericton Wrongful Death Lawyer

Everyone mourns in their own way. In the aftermath of the tragic death of a loved one, there is no set of guidelines for how to properly grieve, nor are there set timelines for how long the process should take. When the negligence of another party or entity leads to the wrongful death of your wife, husband, mother, father, brother, sister, son, daughter, or grandparents, the grieving process can take months, or even years. However, close relatives who have sustained financial losses as the result of their family member’s wrongful death have only a short period of time in which to act to recover compensation.

In Fredericton, bereaved family members have only two years to begin civil proceedings to recover damages they incurred as the result of their relative’s untimely passing. Because of this two-year statute of limitations on wrongful death claims, in order to pursue compensation, families in the province are often required to begin emotionally difficult legal proceedings at the height of their grief.

After the death of a close relative, bereaved family members may be forced to take on a number of costly, unexpected expenses. Although no amount of money will be able to replace your deceased relative, you may be entitled to compensation for expenses you paid out of pocket as a result of their death, in addition to non-economic damages you suffered because of your loss. These damages may 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

Our wrongful death lawyers serving Fredericton believe no one should be required to sustain financial losses if the negligence of another party caused them to lose their loved one. If your spouse, parent, grandparent, sibling, or child was killed because of another person’s negligence, our Fredericton wrongful death lawyers may be able to help you recover financial compensation by filing a lawsuit against the at-fault party whose wrongful conduct caused the conditions leading to their demise.

Grief is a process. When a close relative is killed in senseless, violent, and preventable circumstances, family members may justifiably experience a range of emotions, some of which they may never truly overcome. While bereaved family members may feel like they need time to mourn before engaging in civil litigation, if they do not act within a very narrow set of time limitations, they will forfeit their chances of recovering compensation.
