Port Hawkesbury Wrongful Death Lawyer

Coping with the loss of a close relative can be one of the most difficult challenges a person must face in their lifetime. Unfortunately, this emotionally taxing process can be all the more challenging when the family member’s death was the result of someone else’s negligence.

The negligence of certain parties or entities can have fatal outcomes for unsuspecting accident victims. A driver glancing at a cell phone notification, a property owner who fails to fix a broken handrail, a doctor who misreads a patient’s medical chart, a professional carelessly wielding a dangerous worktool, and other individuals throughout the community who fail to fulfill the duties of care they owe to others can, through their negligence, steal relatives away from their families in senseless, preventable accidents.

When someone else’s carelessness results in the tragic loss of life, the following family members of deceased accident victims may be eligible to pursue a wrongful death claim:

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

By working with our wrongful death lawyers serving Port Hawkesbury, eligible family members may be able to recover compensation for damages they have incurred as a result of their loved one’s tragic, untimely demise. 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

Unfortunately, grieving relatives of wrongfully deceased accident victims in Port Hawkesbury have only a short time to act if they wish to pursue a wrongful death claim. Unlike the residents of most other provinces, local families have only one year following their relative’s death in which to pursue legal action against the negligent party whose wrongful actions caused the fatal accident to occur. Failure to act within this extremely narrow timeframe will disqualify eligible family members from pursuing compensation for the damages they have incurred because of their loved one’s wrongful death.

Bereaved family members in Port Hawkesbury, therefore, have only twelve short months in which they are permitted to pursue legal action to recover compensation for their losses. This means most grieving relatives are forced to begin what might be an emotionally wrenching process while still in mourning.

Our wrongful death lawyers serving Port Hawkesbury understand the emotional toll the loss of a loved one can take on their closest relatives. If you are eligible to pursue a claim against the at-fault party whose negligence led to your family member’s death, our Port Hawkesbury wrongful death lawyers can focus on all practical aspects of your claim so that you can focus on healing, and honouring your loved one’s memory.
