Sudbury Wrongful Death Lawyer

When another party’s negligence results in the wrongful death of a loved one, it can be hard to know what steps to take to seek accountability and restitution. Wrongful deaths resulting from vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, mechanical defects, and other examples of negligence are always tragic. These wrongful deaths can also lead the deceased’s family members to incur substantial financial losses.

According to Public Health Sudbury and Districts (PHSD), accidental injury is the leading cause of death for individuals under the age of 45. In Sudbury, surviving children, spouses, siblings, parents, and grandparents of individuals who passed away as the result of another party’s negligence may be eligible to recover damages for costs incurred as a result of their passing.

If your family member was killed as the result of another party’s negligence, a Sudbury wrongful death lawyer may be able to provide useful advice and assistance during this difficult time.

Negligent Behaviours Resulting in Wrongful Deaths

When the negligent behaviour of another individual or organization leads to the death of an innocent victim, the responsible parties could be held accountable for any costs the victim’s family incurred as a result of their death. Examples of these negligent behaviours might include:

  • Impaired driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Faulty or defective products
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Medical malpractice
  • Negligence causing trip and fall accidents

If you believe that another party’s negligence caused your loved one to pass away, a Sudbury wrongful death lawyer may be able to help prove that the responsible party’s negligent actions led to your family member’s death. To do so, a lawyer might compile and analyze various forms of evidence, including:

  • Accident reconstructions
  • Accident reports
  • Witness statements
  • Previous safety concerns or complaints filed against an individual or property
  • Photographs of hazards at the accident scene
  • Video surveillance footage

In addition to the circumstances leading to your family member’s wrongful death, a lawyer may be able to help you through this emotionally difficult process by providing the following legal services:

  • Answering questions and discussing possible case outcomes
  • Managing all communications and paperwork in accordance with legal deadlines
  • Presenting evidence to demonstrate the total value of the damages you incurred
  • Negotiating settlement offers with the responsible party’s insurance company
  • Representing your case in court, if necessary
  • And possibly more

Recovering Damages Resulting from a Wrongful Death

By working with a Sudbury wrongful death lawyer, you may be able to compile sufficient evidence to prove the total amount of financial losses you incurred as a result of your family member’s wrongful death. Thes damages may include:

  • Funerary and burial costs
  • Medical expenses preceding the victim’s death
  • Loss of care, companionship, and guidance provided by the deceased
  • Loss of income provided by the deceased

A Time Limit in Wrongful Death Cases

According to Ontario’s Limitations Act, wrongful death claims must be filed within two years of your loved one’s passing. If you wait longer than two years to take action, you may be unable to recover compensation, even if you have strong evidence in your defence.

Reaching out to a Sudbury wrongful death lawyer as soon as you’re able to do so may help you meet mandated legal deadlines and time limits.
