What is Wrongful Death?

Serving Greater Vancouver and Nearby Areas of British Columbia

Have you lost a loved one? If you have lost a loved one due to the negligent, reckless, or harmful behavior of another party, you may have cause to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Wrongful death occurs when your loved one’s death could have been prevented if another party had behaved in a manner consistent with acceptable standards. When the untimely death of a loved one could have been prevented, the responsible party can be held accountable for the damages your loss will cause.

Seeking Justice

A wrongful death lawsuit can be filed by a surviving spouse or children of the deceased.

Commonly, a wrongful death lawsuit will seek damages including:

• End of life expenses
• Lost future wages
• Lost future financial contributions such as mortgage and tuition
• Loss of a loved one
 

Not all of these damages can readily have a price placed on them. Working closely with your family, one of our Vancouver wrongful death attorneys will assess the damages you have faced and fight to ensure you receive the justice you are due.
