Whether involving a car, truck or motorcycle, a serious collision can have lasting effects. In the most severe cases, a motor vehicle accident will result in fatality. If you have lost a loved one in an accident caused by the negligence of another driver, it is important that you speak with a personal injury lawyer.
The loss of a loved one can be devastating — both emotionally and financially — to the family. While it is impossible to put a dollar figure on the life of a family member, it can be challenging to remain financially stable without considering your legal options for monetary recovery. If the deceased was a major wage earner, you might face financial peril before you’ve even had the time to grieve. At Cross Border Law, we understand the importance of resolving a case quickly and efficiently. With experience representing Canadian and United States clients, our legal team stands ready to represent you no matter your situation. We maintain offices in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Seattle, Washington.
