Compassionate Calgary Lawyers Helping Those Who Have Lost Loved Ones in Accidents
Losing a loved one because of someone else’s negligence is one of the most traumatic tragedies a family can experience.
At Cuming & Gillespie, we understand the last thing you want to think about after the death of a family member is the potentially complicated legal case against the person who may be responsible. We know that no amount of money can ever replace or bring back the one you have lost. What it can do, however, is provide financial security, and potentially bring you some closure. Compensation is not just a financial matter, but also reflects a level of legal blameworthiness, and therefore can help bring some sense of accountability.
Taking Care of Your Legal Needs While You Grieve
In Alberta, the law with respect to wrongful death is constantly changing. It is therefore critical to hire a lawyer who focuses on serious personal injury claims, is always up-to-date on the current state of the law, and is knowledgeable about the type of compensation available to you.
If a death was caused by the negligence of someone else, the surviving family members can make a claim for certain damages and losses. These damages include:
- Loss of financial support;
- Loss of household support;
- Funeral expenses;
- Grief counselling; and
- Loss of income suffered by family members of the deceased.
At Cuming & Gillespie, our team of personal injury lawyers is knowledgeable, experienced and compassionate and will help you obtain the highest possible compensation for your losses.
Having the Right Lawyer on your Side Makes a Difference
Depending on the type of insurance your loved one had, there may be additional wrongful death benefits you can obtain through the insurance company. If you are considering filing a wrongful death claim, your personal injury lawyer can review any information received from an insurance company, determine what amount of compensation you may be entitled to, and help you obtain it. Having a lawyer who knows what to look for, and what questions to ask can help you and your family get the fairest compensation for your loss.
