Toronto Wrongful Death Lawyers

After the sudden, tragic, accidental death of a close family member, bereaved relatives are often overcome with grief. If their loved one’s death was caused by the negligent actions (or inactions) of another party or entity, that grief is often compounded with feelings of outrage and helplessness.

No amount of money can compensate grieving family members for the loss of their close relative. However, by working with a Toronto wrongful death lawyer, families in mourning may be able to recover costs they have incurred as a result of their loved one’s senseless, tragic death.

That is because, on top of experiencing overwhelming emotional distress, the families of wrongfully deceased accident victims also typically incur substantial financial losses. These are frequently related to:

  • Post-accident medical expenses incurred by the victim prior to their death
  • Funeral expenses
  • Burial costs
  • Loss of expected future income
  • Loss of consortium
  • And more

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we believe that grieving family members should not be forced to suffer undue financial harm after suffering the unthinkable loss of a loved one. If your close relative was killed because of someone else’s negligence, our wrongful death lawyers serving Toronto might be able to fight on your behalf to help you recover the compensation you fairly deserve.

In accordance with the province’s Family Law Act, certain relatives of wrongful deceased accident victims could be entitled to pursue damages against the at-fault party whose negligence caused the fatal accident in which their family member lost their life. These relatives include:

  • Spouses
  • Children
  • Parents
  • Grandparents
  • Grandchildren
  • Siblings

Across Canada, unintentional injuries are the sixth leading cause of death for all age groups. When negligent drivers operate their motor vehicles in an unlawful manner, when property owners/occupiers fail to safely maintain their premises, when licensed professionals fail to meet their industry’s safety standards, or when other responsible parties fail to meet their duty of care, lives can be lost. Actions have consequences, and when someone else’s negligent conduct robs a family member of their close relative, the consequences can be life-altering.

In the shocking aftermath of a tragic, fatal event, bereaved relatives of wrongfully deceased accident victims may not know what to do next, or where to turn to pursue accountability and restitution. However, in accordance with the province’s Limitations Act, eligible family members have only a narrow window of time in which they are allowed to pursue a claim.

Grief is a process that is unique to everyone who experiences it individually. Even though there is no universally acceptable timeframe for bereaved relatives to adequately mourn their loved ones, the province of Ontario imposes one on people who wish to pursue a wrongful death claim. Eligible relatives have only two years from the date of their family member’s death in which to take action.

If your child, parent, sibling, grandparent, or grandchild was killed in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence and you incurred financial losses as a result of their death, time is of the essence. Schedule a cost-free, no-obligation consultation with our wrongful death lawyers serving Toronto by calling 1-800-JUSTICE, and learn whether you might be eligible to pursue legal action.
