Although wrongful death claims are the most egregious of injury claims, the damages available in Ontario are considered modest. Sadly, Ontario law does not place a high value on the loss of life. Nonetheless, the family may obtain compensation for economic losses as a result of the loss of their loved one.
If you have lost a family member due to an accident in Ontario, it is important to learn about your rights. Ontario wrongful death law can be complex, and may involve multiple insurance claims.
