New Glasgow Wrongful Death Lawyer

Losing a close relative can be one of life’s greatest challenges. This already painful process can be even more difficult to undergo when your loved one’s death was the result of someone else’s negligence.

When people fail to consider how their wrongful actions could impact the lives of unsuspecting community members, the bereaved family members of wrongfully deceased accident victims may endure unimaginable grief. In addition to the emotional turmoil associated with the tragic, violent, unexpected, and preventable death of a loved one, close family members of the deceased often incur substantial financial losses.

To recover damages they have sustained as a result of their loved one’s accidental death, eligible family members may decide to pursue legal action against the negligent party whose wrongful conduct caused their fatal accident. By working with our wrongful death lawyers serving New Glasgow, the following family members may be able to recover damages they have incurred as a result of their relative’s passing:

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

However, in order to do so, eligible family members must act within a very short time period. Unlike the residents of most other provinces across the country, bereaved family members in New Glasgow who wish to file a wrongful death claim have only a one-year time limitation in which to do so.

There is no set time limit for how long it should take a parent, spouse, child, sibling, grandparent, or grandchild to grieve the tragic death of their close relative. However, if bereaved family members do not take proper action within this short, twelve-month period, they essentially forfeit their only chance to recover compensation for damages they have incurred. And the damages arising from the wrongful death of a close family member can be exorbitant.

No one anticipates the high costs associated with enduring the death of a close relative. If a fatally injured accident victim is hospitalized in order to undergo emergency medical treatments, their family members may be forced to pay for their care in the days or months before their passing. Upon their deaths, the deceased’s family members may be required to pay high fees for funeral and burial services.

By working with our New Glasgow wrongful death lawyers, bereaved family members who have sustained financial losses may be able to pursue a civil claim for damages. In addition to losses related to their emergency medical care and funeral services, family members who relied on their deceased relative for financial support may be able to pursue damages for lost future income expected over their lifetime. Additionally, bereaved family members may be eligible for certain non-pecuniary damages, including loss of guidance and loss of companionship.

Pursuing a civil claim within the twelve months following your relative’s death may feel like an overwhelming challenge. However, our sensitive and compassionate wrongful death lawyers serving New Glasgow have a history of helping bereaved family members find the justice, accountability, and compensation they deserve.
