“Time is of the essence.”
That’s one of the first topics attorney Cameron Pearson delves into when a grieving family visits Iddins Law Group seeking guidance following a loved one’s wrongful death.
“These tragedies pose significant challenges as families are simultaneously grappling with emotional loss, financial repercussions, and legal responsibilities associated with managing the estate — contacting a lawyer is probably the last thing on your mind. Despite the overwhelming nature of these circumstances, swift action is imperative, as the statute of limitations for most wrongful death cases is between two to three years from the date of the incident.”
To ensure the preservation of essential evidence (including witness statements, which are particularly valuable when the event remains fresh in their mind), prompt action is essential.
The process of gathering critical evidence, conducting interviews, and requesting documents from various agencies, can often extend beyond a year.
“In the unfortunate event that a loved one has suffered a wrongful death due to the negligent actions of another, the first step towards seeking justice is to schedule a complimentary consultation with us. Our skilled attorneys will provide guidance on whether you have a viable case and outline the options available to you.”
Compassion, service and expertise
Iddins Law Group can’t bring back a loved one who’s passed away, but filing a wrongful death claim can help ensure that a spouse, children or siblings of that person are compensated for their loss.
“Believe it or not, I got into law to help people. It started with just one woman — she was in a difficult situation, and I had a lot of legal knowledge that could help. That led to other cases, and I gained a lot of experience in the court room over the next ten years,” Pearson says.
“I got into law to help people and I’m proud of the compassionate and diligent litigation services I’ve provided to hundreds of clients over the past decade” Pearson says.
In 2022 he joined Kent’s Iddins Law Group as a litigation attorney, using his trial skills to help the families of victims of catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases. “Not only do we help our clients who have experienced a tragic accident or loss, but we do it with compassion, empathy and first-class customer service.”
“Everyone at this firm has that sense of service. We love serving our community members who have suffered an injury or loss by the negligence of another, and we do our part to deliver peace of mind through a difficult time.”
Iddins Law Group is rare among law firms for its comfortable atmosphere and top-notch customer service, and also for its convenient blend of services.
Often clients start with a transactional service like a simple will, and after meeting the Iddins Law team, frequently and enthusiastically refer their family, friends and neighbours who are in need of help.
“That’s a huge compliment. Clients will only come back if they feel well represented and well taken care of. Everyone from the attorneys to the paralegals and front desk staff are rooted in that value of customer service. It’s a special place to work.”
