Wrongful death

The loss of a loved one is always difficult.

When losing a loved one due to other’s negligence or accident, there is no amount of financial compensation that can replace our loved one. Wrongful or accidental death compensation is intended to predicate the loss of a loved one and alleviate some of the financial burden associated that loss.

In Ontario, wrongful death claims are dependent on proof that the death was due to negligence of another party. In addition, the wrongful death may have caused damages to the victim’s family as a result.

Individuals that can file a lawsuit in a wrongful or accidental death are:

  • Grandparents
  • Spouse or Common Law partners
  • Children or grandchildren
  • Parents
  • Siblings

Compensation that can be claimed by family members for loss, include:

  • Funeral Expenses
  • Loss of Financial Support
  • Hospital or Medical Bills
  • Loss of Caregiver or Childcare
  • Travel Expenses
  • Punitive Damages
