What is Covered in a Wrongful Death Case?

The death of a family member due to the carelessness of another is something no one should have to experience. The consequences of losing a loved one can be devastating, leaving you not just emotionally hurt, but financially as well. In Ontario, our experienced wrongful death lawyers understand the hardship during this emotional period and work to get the compensation your family deserves.

Because of the stressful nature of the situation and the complex laws regarding wrongful death cases in Ontario, it’s beneficial to seek the help of experienced counsel. In Ontario, according to the Family Law Act, a close blood relative of the deceased (spouse, children, siblings, parents, etc.) may file a wrongful death claim, but the time you have to file a wrongful death suit is short. Whether you’ve lost someone from an auto accident or other negligent incident, you may be due restitution.

Wrongful death damages you may claim include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost wages and future earnings
  • Loss of support, companionship, and care
  • Emotional pain and suffering
