Glace Bay Wrongful Death Lawyer

When the wrongful actions or conduct of another person or entity leads to the death of an innocent, unsuspecting accident victim, relatives of the wrongfully deceased party may feel a deep sense of injustice. Indeed, there are few circumstances in life as painful and unfair as losing a loved one as the result of someone else’s negligence.

No matter where the fatal accident took place– whether in a car, on a boat, on someone else’s property, or other locations– if the negligence of another party created the circumstances that led to someone else’s wrongful death, the at-fault party may be responsible for financially compensating close relatives of the deceased. Negligence occurs when a party or entity fails to uphold the duty of care they legally owe to others. Motor vehicle operators, property owners, and other Glace Bay citizens and professionals have a legal duty to take reasonable actions to prevent others from being harmed as a result of their conduct. A failure to uphold this duty is considered negligence.

After losing a loved one in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, financial compensation may be the last thing on a close relative’s mind. However, the families of fatal accident victims often sustain substantial financial losses as a result of their relative’s wrongful death. In many instances, family members are not prepared to pay the expensive, unexpected costs resulting from their relative’s passing. They may be required to take out loans or incur debt in order to meet the financial obligations arising from their close family member’s death.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we believe that, if your loved one was killed because of someone else’s negligence, the at-fault party should be required to pay for damages you incurred. While no amount of money will be able to bring back your deceased family member or heal the emotional wounds you have sustained in the wake of their tragic death, at the very least, by pursuing legal action against the negligent party, you may be able to recover financial compensation for costs you were forced to pay out of pocket in addition to other financial losses you may have sustained.

By working with our wrongful death lawyers serving Glace Bay, the following family members of wrongfully deceased accident victims may be able to recover compensation:

  • Parents
  • Spouses
  • Children
  • Siblings
  • Grandchildren
  • Grandparents

Our Glace Bay wrongful death lawyers may be able to help close relatives pursue legal action against the negligent party in order to recover damages they have incurred or will incur in the future. 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

Coping with the tragic, unexpected death of a close family member is an emotional process. Most people never fully recover from their losses. Instead, they find ways of living with their grief. However, reaching a point where they feel comfortable moving forward with their lives may take a substantial amount of time following their loved one’s death. Unfortunately, grieving relatives in Glace Bay have only a short window of opportunity in which to begin legal proceedings.

Bereaved family members throughout the province have only one year following their relative’s death in which to pursue legal action against the at-fault party. This is a significantly shorter statute of limitations than those mandated in other provinces across the country. As a result, grieving family members who wish to pursue financial compensation often must find a way to do so under great emotional strain. A failure to act within these twelve short months will result in eligible family members forfeiting their chance to recover financial compensation.

If your close relative was killed in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, time is of the essence. To discuss the circumstances of your family member’s fatal accident and learn if you may be entitled to financial compensation, schedule a free initial consultation with our wrongful death lawyers serving Glace Bay.
