First and foremost, Iacobelli Law Firm offers sincere condolences and support for the family of the young boy who was tragically killed in this fatal hit-and-run accident.
Police have now made an arrest in connection with this Ontario hit-and-run accident. A Toronto man has been charged with several counts. In addition to the criminal and highway traffic act proceedings that are now pending, the family of the victim will also be able to advance a wrongful death civil claim for the loss of their child. In Ontario, when someone dies as a result of a motor vehicle accident, the surviving members of the deceased’s family may be able to make a claim for wrongful death benefits. Wrongful death compensation in Ontario is typically provided through motor vehicle insurance and can include damages for the loss of guidance, care, companionship and services of their loved one.
At Iacobelli Law Firm, we represent families that have lost a loved one as a result of fatal car accidents, truck accidents and motorycle accidents. If you have lost a loved one, contact us for a complimentary consultation.
