Saint John Wrongful Death Lawyer

Husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, daughters and sons, sisters and brothers, grandparents and grandchildren. When families lose a close relative in a tragic, fatal accident, the human cost of their loss can never truly be quantified. The pain of loss is never easy to bear, but when a close family member is killed because of another person’s negligence, the emotional experience of bereaved relatives may be even more difficult to endure.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we appreciate that coping with the loss of a loved one may be one of the greatest challenges a person will face in their lifetime. Our wrongful death lawyers serving Saint John realize that, in the wake of tragic loss of life, bereaved relatives may have greater things on their mind than financial compensation. However, our Saint John wrongful death lawyers are passionate about helping grieving families get the justice they deserve.

If another party or entity’s negligence caused an accident in which your close relative was killed, in addition to the painful emotional toll their death may take on your family, you may be required to suffer the further indignity of paying expensive costs resulting from their wrongful loss of life. Our wrongful death lawyers believe that, when family members have been forced to endure the anguish of losing their close relative because of someone else’s negligent conduct, they should not also be forced to incur financial losses.

By working with our Saint John wrongful death lawyers, the following family members of a deceased accident victim may be able to pursue financial compensation for damages they have sustained as the result of their relative’s death:

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

In the aftermath of a loved one’s death, these bereaved family members may find themselves incurring a number of costly, unexpected expenses. By filing a lawsuit against the negligent party whose wrongful actions or inactions caused your family member’s fatal accident, our Saint John wrongful death lawyers may be able to recover damages you incurred because of their tragic, untimely passing. 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

There are no set rules or timelines on how to mourn the loss of a close relative. Everyone experiences grief differently. The mourning process can take time. It may be months, or even years before bereaved family members build up the emotional fortitude to begin pursuing legal action against the at-fault party whose negligence caused their loved one’s death.

However, in this province, there is a two-year statute of limitations on wrongful death claims. If family members fail to act within this relatively narrow timeframe, they may lose their only chance to recover compensation for the damages they have incurred. That is why, if you have suffered a profound, personal loss, speaking with our wrongful death lawyers serving Saint John as soon as you are able may be beneficial.
