The wrongful death of a loved one is an intensely painful and personal event. Coming to terms with such a loss is made more difficult when the death is unexpected and preventable.
No amount of money can fill the void left by the lost loved one. However, family members will face real challenges paying for funeral expenses, grief counseling, replacing the deceased’s help caring for children, managing the household and paying bills with less income.
In Ontario, our system of law requires those responsible for the wrongful death to compensate family members for these and other losses. Family members are entitled to claim compensation from the person responsible for the wrongful death. This compensation is normally paid by the at-fault person’s insurer.
If your loved one has been the victim of a wrongful death, taking time to grieve and come to terms with what has happened is natural. The most important things must come first, comforting amongst family and friends, funeral arrangements and seeking advice.
Please be aware, that time limits govern when you must notify the responsible parties that you intend to bring a wrongful death claim, these wrongful death laws govern when you must start your wrongful death claim for compensation. Having a consultation with an experienced wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible will ensure that evidence is not misplaced, memories of any witnesses are still fresh, required evidence is gathered and wrongful death claim deadlines are met.
