Toronto Fatality Lawyers

Losing a family member is particularly devastating when the loss is unexpected and could have been prevented. Although compensation may be a secondary concern behind grieving the loss of a loved one, it is important to understand the legal recourses available in order to ensure compensation is received.

At CHAGPAR LAW, Salina F. Chagpar and our team of Toronto fatality lawyers take clients through their legal options following a wrongful death. We are conscious of the overwhelming nature of this experience and take the needed time with clients to guide them through the legal process and stand by them as the legal claim proceeds.

Filing Suit in the Wake of a Loss

In Ontario, when someone has suffered the loss of a loved one due to another’s wrongful act, he or she may be able to sue for specific damages as a result. The law in this regard is governed by the Family Law Act, which allows for the deceased person’s immediate family to recover damages, including:

  • Expenses incurred on behalf of the person as a result of his or her injury
  • Funeral expenses
  • Travel expenses to visit the person during his or her treatment
  • Loss of income while caring for the injured person
  • Compensation for the loss of guidance, care and companionship
  • Claims for lost dependency
  • Your own claim for benefits, including the appropriate treatment to help you heal.
