Chilliwack Wrongful Death Lawyer

In the aftermath of a loved one’s unexpected passing, it can be difficult to know what to do. This is especially true when your family member’s passing resulted from another person’s negligence. While dealing with making the final arrangements is difficult, juggling that process while considering a wrongful death lawsuit is too much for many people.

Despite the challenges that come with a wrongful death claim, these lawsuits can provide financial security for a family that was rocked by an unexpected passing. For relatives who relied financially on the deceased family member, a Chilliwack wrongful death lawyer could provide important guidance on filing a successful claim.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we are focused on compassionate support for grieving Chilliwack families. No financial reward will ever replace a loved one, but it could give you a measure of justice. What’s more, the damages recovered could go to ensure your family is financially secure after this tragic loss. To discuss in detail the merits of your claim, reach out to our personal injury law firm right away.

Common causes of a wrongful death claim

The potential causes of a fatal injury illness are too many to count. In the wrong circumstance, even seemingly minor injuries or illnesses could have fatal consequences. Despite the broad range of potential wrongful death claims, there are some situations that are more likely than others to result in an accidental death. Understanding these circumstances could prove beneficial to the wrongful death law firm handling your claim.

Some of the common causes of wrongful deaths include:

  • Car or truck accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Accidental fires
  • Falls from a great height
  • Violent crime
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Boating accidents
  • Dangerous products
  • Defective drugs

Damages available in a wrongful death lawsuit

The potential damages from a wrongful death claim have much in common with those recovered from a personal injury lawsuit. However, there are some important differences. The damages commonly sought in a Chilliwack wrongful death lawsuit include:

  • The cost of a loved one’s final medical bills
  • Funeral or burial costs
  • The pain and suffering your loved one experienced
  • Loss of financial support
  • Loss of future income

Identifying the damages available for the loss of a loved one is a primary duty of any wrongful death lawyer. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we evaluate a wrongful death claim thoroughly to ensure we seek the full amount of compensation you are entitled to.
