The loss of a loved one is never easy, and wrongful death cases are heartbreaking. Losing a loved one is even more difficult to accept when the loss, while both tragic and unexpected, occurs because of the negligence of another individual or corporation. An Ontario lawyer that focuses on personal injury and wrongful death claims can help you get justice.
In Ontario, when someone dies as a result of the actions or negligence of another person, the surviving members of the deceased’s family can pursue a claim for wrongful death. Representing the most egregious form of personal injury, wrongful death claims are civil cases — they do not assign criminal responsibility for the death. Among other damages, the family of a person killed in an accident may be able to obtain compensation for the loss of guidance, care and companionship of their loved one.
Many wrongful death claims arise out of fatal motor vehicle accidents, such as fatal car accidents, fatality motorcycle accidents, and fatality pedestrian accidents. Although less common, wrongful death can also occur as a result of a trip and fall or injury that occurs on a commercial or public property.
