How to claim compensation for negligence causing wrongful death

What is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death claims are brought by or on behalf of an immediate relative, spouse, parent, child of the deceased. They seek compensation for the losses resulting from a family member's wrongful death.

Losing a loved one or friend is painful at any time. When somebody you love dies due to another person’s negligence, it can make things seem even worse. A number of legal questions can arise, and a family’s finances can be strained due to the ongoing lost income if the deceased was a breadwinner.

If a family member or friend has been killed as a result of negligence, it is crucial that you use our CanLaw Lawyer Referral Services to find a personal injury solicitor or law firm.

Wrongful death case claims are "statutory causes of action" (law suits) brought by and on behalf of a surviving spouse, child, or parent or other relative.

The idea behind a wrongful death lawsuit is that the wrongful death, in addition to injuring the person who died, also injured people who depended upon the deceased for financial or emotional support.
