LAWYER HELPLINE: 855 804 7125

Wrongful death lawyers can make compensation claims, following a fatal accident, on behalf of the survivors and beneficiaries of an individual who dies as a result of any wrongful act, neglect or default and legal action can be brought against the person or other party who was to blame for causing the accident.

Entitlement to make a claim is defined by law and will be dependent on the nature and degree of the relationship with the deceased. Wrongful death compensation can include loss of care, guidance and companionship, funeral and other expenses, loss of the services of the deceased and that portion of the deceased's contribution to the family earnings and pension. Compensation can be claimed by wrongful death lawyers for pain and suffering sustained as a result of the accident and all other losses prior to death however if death was instantaneous then pain and suffering damages will be minimal.
