When a person is killed in an accident due to the negligence or carelessness of someone else, that is considered a wrongful death. Accidents that result in a person’s untimely passing are devastating to friends and family of the victim. A wrongful death takes a tremendous physical, emotional, and financial toll on everyone. Anyone who has lost a family member due to the negligence of others is encouraged to contact our Ottawa wrongful death lawyers to ensure that a proper claim against the negligent parties is pursued.

Funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and the financial support that would have been provided by the deceased are appropriate reasons for the compensation of surviving loved ones.
