What Will An Attorney Do For This Case?
Wrongful death cases often involve many different parties, including insurance carriers and legal teams. These cases can become complex, and your Ontario wrongful death lawyer will properly investigate the entire incident. This could involve:
Gathering all evidence of the incident, including photos and video surveillance, eyewitness statements, and more.
Working with healthcare and economic professionals to properly calculate the losses expected due to the wrongful death, including lifetime earnings lost, the deceased’s pain and suffering, etc.
Negotiating with all parties involved to reach a fair settlement while also preparing the case for trial if necessary.
Wrongful Death Cases Are Devastating For Survivors
When a loved one loses someone unexpectedly, their lives are irrevocably changed. They are going to miss out on the companionship of their loved one as well as the income and benefits they would have provided during their lifetime. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that nearly 170,000 people died from unintentional injury deaths in the latest reporting year.
Individuals, companies, non-profits, and other entities can all be held accountable if their careless, negligent, or intentional actions cause the death of another person. California allows the following people to file a wrongful death claim:
Immediate family members of the deceased (spouse, children)
Life partners, financial dependents, putative spouses
Distant family members
Others who suffer financially from the death
Parents of a deceased fetus
There are various ways that these cases arise. While this is not a complete list, these are some common causes of wrongful death cases:
