Compensation in a wrongful death claim

The damages available through a wrongful death lawsuit can vary depending on your circumstances. You could recover compensation for any end-of-life expenses incurred by your loved one, including their funeral or burial costs. There is also a possibility of recovering damages similar to a personal injury lawsuit.

Common damages sought in an Abbotsford wrongful death lawsuit include:

  • Funeral, cremation, or burial expenses
  • Medical bills related to your loved one’s final injury or illness
  • Financial support for your loved one’s dependents
  • Loss of household services
  • Loss of income

With the help of the right wrongful death law firm, you could obtain the compensation you deserve following the untimely passing of your family member.

The right to file an Abbotsford wrongful death lawsuit

Only certain family members are entitled to recover from a wrongful death lawsuit. For that reason, there are limitations on who can file these suits in the first place. Your wrongful death lawyer can advise you on whether you are entitled to bring a wrongful death claim or not.

Spouses of the deceased victim are commonly plaintiffs in a wrongful death lawsuit. However, under certain circumstances, the surviving children or parents could also bring a claim as well. The Family Compensation Act has a broad definition of “spouse.” In addition to a person legally married to the decedent, anyone living with the deceased person in a relationship similar to a marriage has the right to file suit.
