Has a loved one experienced
a wrongful death?

We recognize that money can never fully compensate you for your loss. No amount of money can right the wrong done to your family member. However, financial compensation is the only remedy the law allows. In many cases, family members need to pursue a wrongful death claim in order to survive financially. Legal action may also help prevent others from suffering a similar fatality by encouraging more responsible behaviour by individuals and companies. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What compensation is available for surviving family members?

In Ontario, surviving family members have the right to be compensated for the loss of their loved one’s financial support, as well as the loss of his or her guidance, care and companionship. Funeral expenses and certain other expenses are also compensable. Spouses, children, parents, grandparents, and siblings may be able to collect damages.
