Determining the appropriate damages in a wrongful death claim requires careful calculations. Our experienced wrongful death attorneys know how to evaluate the full financial and emotional impact of your loss.
Be aware that Ontario law dictates who can file a wrongful death claim to recover these damages. Under the Family Law Act, only the blood relatives of the deceased — meaning the spouse, children, grandchildren, siblings, and parents — can obtain compensation after losing someone due to the negligent actions of another.
