At Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer Group, the compassionate wrongful death lawyers we work with know a wrongful death – a death caused by someone else’s misconduct – can cause severe emotional and financial effects. All too often, surviving family members must not only contend with the emotional consequences of a tragic loss, but also with the financial costs associated with a death. The costs associated with a tragic death can be compounded if the deceased was the primary financial provider.

Per law, only certain individuals may file a wrongful death lawsuit to pursue financial compensation from the at fault party. Typically, the law allows spouses, children, and life partners to take legal action for a preventable death. When considering legal action, it is important to consider:
Statute of limitations
The statute of limitations is the amount of time permitted by the province to file a lawsuit. In Ontario, the statute of limitations for wrongful death cases it usually two years from the date the death occurred. The statute of limitations is different for cases involving a government agency or entity. In some cases, claims against a government agency or entity must be filed within ten days of a death occurring.
Experiecned legal representation
Quality legal representation can mean the difference of winning or losing your case. If you lose a case, you lose your one chance to recover funds for the damages related to your devastating loss. When looking for an attorney to handle your case, look for trial experience and a proven record of success.
