The negligence of certain individuals can have fatal consequences. In New Waterford, traumatic accidents caused by another party or entity’s wrongful conduct can rip family members away from their loved ones in shocking, violent, and wholly preventable circumstances.

When the wrongful conduct of a motor vehicle operator, property owner, certified professional, or other community member with a duty of care to protect the safety of others causes a fatal accident, the relatives of wrongfully deceased victims often struggle to cope with their sudden loss. Losing a loved one can be one of life’s greatest challenges, and family members of wrongfully deceased relatives often require a substantial period of time to mourn and grieve. 

However, in this province, the relatives of wrongfully deceased accident victims have only one year to pursue legal action against the negligent party whose wrongful conduct resulted in their relative’s death. In the aftermath of a fatal accident, no amount of money will be able to sufficiently heal their family members’ emotional wounds. That said, by pursuing a civil claim against the party whose negligence caused the fatal accident to occur, eligible relatives of wrongfully deceased accident victims could recover financial compensation for damages they incurred as a result of their family member’s tragic death. 

Bereaved relatives who do not act within the short twelve-month period following their family member’s death could forfeit their only opportunity to recover financial compensation for their damages. No one anticipates the high costs associated with enduring the death of a close relative. By working with our wrongful death lawyers serving New Waterford, certain family members of wrongfully deceased accident victims may be able to recover damages they have incurred because of their close relative’s death. These damages often 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 New Waterford wrongful death lawyers may be able to pursue a civil claim on behalf of the following relatives of wrongfully deceased accident victims: 

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