Richmond Hill Wrongful Death Lawyer

Losing a loved one is often one of life’s greatest challenges. When family members pass on, the emotional pain can be overwhelming and long-lasting. However, when close relatives lose their lives in violent, senseless, and preventable accidents caused by someone else’s negligence, the pain of their loss is often compounded by feelings of anger, outrage, shock, and devastation.

Across the country, unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death for Canadians between the ages of 1 and 34 years old. Because of the negligence of other parties or entities, tens of thousands of Canadians lose their lives each year, leaving behind countless grieving relatives and loved ones.

The negligence of motor vehicle operators, occupiers of hazardous properties, medical practitioners, certain licensed professionals, and other parties can have devastating consequences. Bereaved relatives of wrongfully deceased accident victims are often forced to live with the pain of their loss for the rest of their lives.

Our Richmond Hill wrongful death lawyers know full-well that no amount of money will be able to truly compensate a grieving family member for the loss of their close relative. However, at Preszler Injury Lawyers, we appreciate that the death of a family member can be expensive. Our wrongful death lawyers serving Richmond Hill believe that bereaved relatives should not be forced to suffer the indignities of financial losses after losing so much already.

In the aftermath of traumatic, fatal accidents, family members of the deceased often incur significant expenses. These expenses are often related to medical services and treatments accumulated prior to their relative’s death.

Additionally, after a close relative passes away, their family members may be required to go to great expense to pay for their funeral service and other costs associated with their burial, interment, or cremation. Family members who were financially dependent upon their wrongfully deceased relatives have even more to lose. Without the expected future income provided by their deceased family member, these vulnerable relatives could experience legitimate economic distress. Grieving relatives could incur additional non-economic damages related to the loss of guidance and/or companionship previously provided by their deceased family member.

However, by working with our Richmond Hill wrongful death lawyers, the following close relatives might be entitled to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault party whose negligence caused the fatal accident to occur:

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

In accordance with the province’s Limitations Act, bereaved family members have only two years from the date of their loved one’s passing in which to begin legal proceedings. If eligible relatives fail to act within this relatively short time period, they will forfeit their only chance to pursue the compensation they are rightfully owed. That is why, if your close relative was killed in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, consulting with our wrongful death lawyers serving Richmond Hill as soon as possible could be of the utmost importance.
