Defining a wrongful death claim

Before you can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit, you must understand the definition. This is a civil case; the only potential remedy is a financial award against the person responsible. Typically, a wrongful death law firm brings these claims on behalf of any surviving relatives.

These claims differ from criminal prosecution. In a criminal case, a prosecutor will bring charges on behalf of the province. In a wrongful death case, these criminal charges could include manslaughter or even murder. The potential result of a criminal case includes jail time and fines. These two types of cases are entirely independent of each other. However, both cases can proceed at the same time.

Prevailing in a civil case will require your wrongful death lawyer to demonstrate that the defendant negligently caused the death of your loved one. This could involve demonstrating that the defendant made a careless, reckless, or intentional choice, which resulted in death. By prevailing at trial, your lawyer could secure your potential award of damages.

Damages in a wrongful death claim

The prospective damages in a wrongful death claim differ from one case to another. In some cases, the largest expenses will involve the cost of your loved one’s final injury or illness. In others, it could relate to the lost income now facing your family. Other potential damages could include compensation for your loved one’s pain and suffering.
