Wrongful Death Lawyers Grande Prairie

Losing a close relative is never easy. It is, perhaps, one of life’s greatest challenges. Grief is an ongoing process that transforms throughout our lifetimes. No one ever fully recovers from the death of a loved one. Instead, they find ways of living with the pain of loss, adapting to the grief and continuing to mourn in private, individual ways.

The pain of loss can be even more profound if your close relative was killed because of another person’s negligence. If the wrongful actions or inactions of another party or entity caused you and your family to endure unimaginable loss, the pain of their wrongful death may be extremely difficult to bear.

In addition to the emotional turmoil of losing a loved one, bereaved relatives of a wrongfully deceased person may be forced to take on a number of expenses related to their death. Our wrongful death lawyers serving Grande Prairie believe that, if someone else’s negligence was responsible for killing your close family member, you should not be forced to suffer financial losses in addition to the profound emotional loss you have just endured.

By working with our Grande Prairie wrongful death lawyers, eligible relatives of fatal accident victims may be able to recover compensation for financial losses they have incurred (or will incur) as a result of their loved one’s demise. These financial losses might include:

  • Bereavement damages (amounts vary based on relationship to the deceased)
  • Loss of financial support
  • Loss of childcare support
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of expected earnings
  • Funeral expenses and burial costs
  • Grief counseling

According to the province’s Fatal Accidents Act, civil claims related to the wrongful death of a relative must be brought by the deceased party’s estate administrator or executor. All eligible family members who decide to pursue a wrongful death claim are required to bring the same action; there cannot be multiple claims related to the same person’s wrongful death.

The following relatives of wrongfully deceased accident victims should be entitled to pursue a civil claim against the party or entity whose negligence resulted in their family member’s death:

  • Spouses
  • Adult interdependent partners
  • Parents
  • Children
  • Siblings

Our wrongful death lawyers serving Grande Prairie appreciate that no amount of money will be able to change the past or truly compensate a bereaved relative in the aftermath of their loved one’s passing. However, by working with our Grande Prairie wrongful death lawyers, people who have lost loved ones in accidents resulting from someone else’s negligence may be able to recover much-needed compensation and emotional closure.
