Wrongful Death Lawyer Scarborough

Even the smallest, most seemingly innocent actions can have monumental consequences. If a driver glances away from their windshield to check a cell phone notification, if a property owner neglects to salt their walkway after an ice storm, if a medical professional fails to check a patient’s medical history before prescribing a potentially dangerous course of treatment, the repercussions can be deadly. Innocent, unsuspecting community members can lose their lives because of another person’s failure to consider the consequences of their wrongful actions.

If the negligence of another party or entity leads to a fatal accident, the victim’s family members might find themselves overcome with grief. Grief is a unique process. Everyone experiences it differently and for different lengths of time. Many believe that the emotional wounds caused by the loss of a loved one never truly heal. Instead, a person’s grief informs and shapes the course of the rest of their lives. 

While no amount of money can change the past or bring back the wrongfully deceased victims of fatal accidents, certain family members who have lost close relatives might be entitled to compensation. Coping with the death of a loved one can be an expensive process. Many family members incur significant financial losses as a result of their relative’s passing.

Our Scarborough wrongful death lawyers believe that no one should be forced to suffer financially after already losing someone so near and dear to them. By working with our wrongful death lawyers serving Scarborough, members of the deceased’s immediate family might be able to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault party whose negligence led to their relative’s tragic loss of life. Eligible family members might be able to work with our Scarborough wrongful death lawyers in order to pursue compensation for:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Burial costs
  • Medical expenses incurred prior to their relative’s death
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of expected future income
  • Pain and suffering
  • And possibly more

In accordance with provincial legislation, certain family members could be eligible to pursue a wrongful death claim. These eligible relatives include:

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

However, eligible family members only have a short period of time in which they are entitled to pursue legal action. According to the Ontario Limitations Act, a deceased accident victim’s relatives have only two short years from the date of their death in which to begin legal proceedings. And while that time frame might seem generous, in the shocking, overwhelming aftermath of a loved one’s violent and preventable death, time can appear to lose all meaning. In many situations, this means that family members who wish to pursue compensation are forced to take legal action at the height of their grief.

Our wrongful death lawyers sering Scarborough endeavour to make the process of pursuing compensation as straightforward and uncomplicated as possible. We do our best to handle all aspects of our clients’ claims so that they can focus on their emotional and psychological recovery.
