Shelburne Wrongful Death Lawyer

The loss of a beloved family member can be one of life’s greatest challenges, especially when their death was sudden, violent, and preventable. The wrongful actions and behaviours of certain parties and entities can have fatal consequences, leading family members to lose their relatives in unthinkable, tragic circumstances.

If someone else’s negligence has recently caused your close relative to lose their life in a fatal accident, pursuing legal action to recover financial compensation from the negligent party may understandably be the furthest thing from your mind. Grief is a singular process, unique to each individual experiencing it. Mourning the loss of a loved one can take time. In fact, many family members of fatal accident victims may take months or even years before they begin thinking about options for financial recovery that may be available to them.

Unfortunately, in this province, the close relatives of wrongfully deceased accident victims have only twelve short months from the date of their loved one’s death in order to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault party whose negligence caused their fatal accident to occur. Unlike most other provinces, there is a one-year time limitation on local wrongful death claims. That means the bereaved relatives of wrongfully deceased accident victims who wish to pursue financial compensation may be required to take legal action at the height of their grief.

On top of the emotional and psychological anguish often experienced by bereaved family members in the wake of their relative’s death, the grieving mothers and fathers, wives and husbands, daughters and sons, sisters and brother, grandparents, and grandchildren of wrongfully deceased accident victims often incur substantial financial losses as a direct result of their relative’s sudden passing. These financial losses might be related to necessary medical expenses paid prior to their death, expenses related to their interment after succumbing to their fatal injuries, future income on which they were relying, non-pecuniary damages, and more.

If you lost a child, spouse, parent, sibling, grandparent, or grandchild in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, our wrongful death lawyers serving Shelburne may be able to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve. By working with our Shelburne wrongful death lawyers, you may be able to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault party in order to recover damages you have incurred as a result of your family member’s death. These damages might 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

If you are eligible to pursue a claim against the at-fault party whose negligence led to your family member’s death, our Shelburne 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.
