What is a wrongful death claim?
Wrongful death is a legal term used to describe an injury accident or illness caused by someone else’s reckless or negligent behaviour. A wrongful death claim can include a wide range of personal injury accidents, including:
- Fatal car accidents
- Fatal truck accidents
- Fatal motorcycle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Drowning accidents
Whatever type of wrongful death claim your family is dealing with in the GTA or Ontario, you can rely on our legal team to carefully investigate your case and explore every possible legal angle on your behalf.
What should I do if I believe I have a wrongful death claim?
If you believe your loved one died due to the reckless or negligent behaviour of someone else, we advise you to take the following steps to protect your rights:
- Save any written materials (accident report, medical bills, etc.) related to your loved one’s accident or illness.
- If the at-fault party’s insurance company contacts you, do not discuss your potential case with them. You are not required to talk to them.
- Contact our Toronto law firm as soon as possible.
What many people might not realize is anything they say or write about their loved one’s injury or illness could potentially be used to reduce or deny their family’s wrongful death claim. That’s why we want to meet with you as soon as possible. We can deal with all the legal aspects of your case while your family grieves the loss of your loved one.
