Pembroke accident highway 17 results in wrongful death of Brian Pratt.

Accident in Pembroke

Pembroke Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth

Tragically, a 58 year old Deep River man has died as the result of a terrible Pembroke accident morning on Highway 17, close to Pembroke, Ontario.  Brian Pratt was driving his 1997 Chevy pickup yesterday morning when he was hit by another vehicle; a tractor trailer at the intersection of B-Line Road in Pembroke  and Highway 17. Sadly, he died at the accident scene. The driver of the tractor trailer was 21-year-old Muraleetharam Paramanantham, and his passenger was 32-year-old Jahanzeb Baloch, both of Toronto thankfully, were  uninjured.  My thoughts go out to the family and friends of Brian Pratt at this very difficult time.

There seem to be many accidents in the Pembroke area and especially on Highway 17.  Many of these are fatal accidents, leave behind grieving families. Our personal injury lawyers travel regularly to Pembroke to offer free legal advice and give families guidance when it comes to next steps after losing someone in an accident. Our personal injury lawyers often take over the insurance portion for families, so that in a timely manner they receive compensation for things such as funeral expenses and to cover other expenses related to losing a loved one.  We want to allow our families time to grieve and rebuild with one another and not worry about logistical paperwork associated with insurance claims after an accident. Our accident lawyers understand that this is not the time for families to be worried about insurance claims.
