Ontario accidents involving motorcycles account for many serious injuries and wrongful deaths. Because motorcycles do not provide as much protection against a collision with a larger vehicle, the consequences of a motorcycle accident can be devastating.
When a negligent driver fails to properly share the road with a motorcycle and causes a motorcycle operators death, our personal injury and wrongful death law firm works hard to make certain that the at-fault driver is held accountable.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim for a Motorcycle Accident?
In a wrongful death motorcycle accident in Ontario, the immediate family relatives are typically entitled to file a claim for their loss. This includes spouses, parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren, and siblings of the deceased.
In Ontario, wrongful death claims are subject to Part V of the Family Law Act. The Family Law Act also identifies what the family members can claim for their loss of the loved one. The damages include, expenses incurred, including funeral expenses and travel expenses, as well as claims for loss of income or the value of the services. The law in Ontario also allows family member to claim for the loss of guidance, care and companionship of their loved one.
We understand that grieving after the loss of a loved one is profound. The last thing on the mind of the family is advancing a lawsuit and questioning whether the death would have been avoided if the other driver had driven responsibly. As hard as it is, in wrongful death motorcycle accident cases, it is important to get the advice of an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible.
