Halifax Wrongful Death Lawyer

When another party’s negligence leads to the death of a relative, no amount of money will be able to fully compensate bereaved family members for the loss they have endured. However, when the negligent actions of another person or entity lead to wrongful deaths in Halifax, the following close relatives of the deceased may be able to pursue financial compensation:

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

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, our wrongful death lawyers in Halifax know that accident victims are not simply statistics or case files. The untimely, violent death of an unsuspecting accident victim can impact the family members they leave behind in profound ways. Mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, sisters and brothers, daughters and sons can suffer great emotional losses because of a close relative’s death. They may also incur substantial financial losses, as well.

Some expenses a wrongful death lawyer may be able to help you 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 order to recover financial compensation through a wrongful death claim, our wrongful death lawyers serving Halifax may be able to gather and present various forms of evidence to prove the following:

  • The at-fault party’s actions or inactions behind the wheel contributed to your family member’s death.
  • The accident victim’s death was caused by the at-fault party’s negligence.
  • As a result of your family member’s death, you have sustained damages.

In accordance with the province’s Fatal Injuries Act, eligible family members have only one year to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If eligible family members do not act within this mandated time limit, they will most likely lose their opportunity to pursue financial compensation for costs they have incurred.

Mourning the death of a close relative grieving process can take a long time, especially when your loved one’s death was sudden and accidental. Because of the province’s 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 people, this means starting legal proceedings at the height of their grief.

Assistance from our compassionate wrongful death lawyers with experience in Halifax may help make the emotionally difficult process somewhat easier to endure.

Because of this narrow window of opportunity available to bereaved relatives, it is important to contact our Halifax wrongful death lawyers as soon as you feel able. Our wrongful death lawyers serving Halifax offer free, initial consultations to the bereaved family members of accident victims.
