Fatal Accidents and Wrongful Death
One of the most tragic events a family can experience is the unexpected death of a loved one. When the loss is caused by the negligent, reckless, or intentional action, of someone else, you may be left feeling stunned and angry while you grieve your loss.
We can help you pursue justice for your lost loved one, as well as compensation that can help you and your family cope with the financial effects of your loved one’s death. Let us handle the legal details while you recover from the tragedy of a fatal accident or wrongful death.
Compensation for Fatal Accidents and Wrongful Death
You may believe that there is nothing you can do when a loved one’s life has been tragically lost in an accident, but, in Alberta, you may be able to pursue a fatal accident or wrongful death case against those responsible. Through the Fatal Accidents Act and Survival of Actions Act, Alberta law allows certain immediate family members of someone killed by the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of another person to seek compensation for the economic and emotional losses suffered.
If the loved one you lost made economic contributions to your household, compensation through a fatal accident or wrongful death case can help you secure your family’s financial future and alleviate some of the stress and uncertainty you may be feeling in the wake of this tragic loss.
We understand that no monetary damages can ever replace what you have lost. But cassidyHEA injury law can help you hold accountable the people that caused your loved one’s death and work to prevent other families from enduring this kind of suffering and grief in the future.
If your loved one was fatally injured in a motor vehicle accident or other accident, you may be able to recover compensation for the following:
- Burial and funeral expenses
- Medical bills and other expenses incurred prior to the passing of your loved one
- Grief, and loss of care and companionship
- Loss of economic support
