Brockville Wrongful Death Lawyer

If you lost a loved one because of an accident caused by someone else’s negligent behaviour, you have our sympathies. You may be feeling added stress in this difficult time if the financial burden of paying for the funeral and any remaining medical expenses has fallen on you.

Accidents happen every day. And, unfortunately, many of those accidents are the result of negligent behaviour on behalf of one or more parties. If you are eligible, you may have the right to hold those people responsible.

The team at Preszler Injury Lawyers is here to help. If you are eligible, we may investigate the details of your case and pursue compensation to the fullest extent of your losses. For a free, no-risk initial consultation, call us today at 1-800-JUSTICE.

Some Types of Wrongful Death Cases We See

There are many types of accidents that can result in the death of a loved one. Some of them include:

Car Accidents

According to the Ontario Road Safety Annual Report, 578 people were killed in accidents on roadways in 2018, including vehicle drivers and passengers, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and others.

Bicycle Accidents

Because bicycles have no frame, seat belt, or airbag to protect riders when an accident occurs, riders are particularly vulnerable during accidents. According to data compiled by Statistics Canada, there were almost 900 fatal bicycle accidents from 2006 to 2017, at an average of 74 per year.

Truck Accidents

Because of their enormous size and weight, accidents that involve trucks can be particularly catastrophic for other motorists and pedestrians. According to the Ontario Road Safety Annual Report, there were 93 fatalities in 2018 caused by collisions with large trucks.

Motorcycle Accidents

Like bicyclists, motorcyclists are especially vulnerable during accidents because there is nothing to protect them from the full impact of the collision. And if the motorcyclists are not wearing protective gear, their injuries are especially severe. The Ontario Road Safety Annual Report shows that 57 motorcyclists were killed on roadways in the province in 2018.

Medical Malpractice

If your healthcare practitioner makes a medical error or behaves negligently, you may have the right to hold them responsible for their behaviour. Even though healthcare practitioners go through years of schooling and training, mistakes can happen, such as medication errors, delayed diagnoses, misdiagnoses, anesthesia mistakes, or surgical errors.

Damages You May Be Eligible to Recover After a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

While we cannot estimate the types of damages that you may be able to recover without first reviewing the details related to your case, some common types of damages that family members are able to recover after the loss of a loved one may include:

  • Medical costs related to the accident that are left to the family to cover
  • Lost wages from time off work caring for the deceased before their death
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of support and protection
  • Loss of benefits and wages formerly provided by the deceased
  • Loss of companionship
  • Funeral and burial expenses

These are just a few possible examples of potentially recoverable damages. You may be entitled to these or others if you are eligible.

How the Statute of Limitations May Impact Your Claim

Ontario’s Limitations Act maintains a specific amount of time that you have to pursue compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit against another party or parties. While there are some exceptions, the statute of limitations generally allows families two years from the date of the victim’s death to pursue damages.

If you fail to file your lawsuit within this time, you may be unable to recover compensation. This would leave you paying out of pocket for any expenses related to your loved one’s passing.
