Kelowna Wrongful Death Lawyer

If you have lost a beloved family member due to the fault of another person, you could have a viable wrongful death claim under British Columbia law. While you have the right to pursue these claims on your own, the challenge of balancing a wrongful death suit as well as grieving the loss of a loved one is often too much. Preszler Law is prepared to take on the burden of your claim so that you can focus on healing.

In many cases, an untimely death will qualify for compensation under the Family Compensation Act. However, it is important to discuss the strength of that claim with a personal injury lawyer before taking any other action. Understanding this can go a long way in obtaining the compensation you deserve.

To learn more about the process, contact Preszler Law right away. At your free case evaluation, we can review your claim and answer any questions you might have.

Who can file a Kelowna wrongful death lawsuit?

Not just anyone can file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of a deceased person. Under the Family Compensation Act, only certain surviving relatives may pursue this. These limits are intended to protect the heirs of the deceased person from being taken advantage of. Contact our wrongful death law firm to learn if you have the right to do so.

In most cases, wrongful death claims are brought by a surviving spouse. The law broadly defines a “spouse” as anyone legally married to the deceased person, or anyone who was living with the deceased person in a relationship that was like a marriage.

Outside of the spouse, other family members could have a right to file suit. In some instances, the deceased person’s children or parents could have the right to initiate a claim. A discussion with a thoughtful wrongful death lawyer could help you understand everyone who has a stake in the case.

No fee unless we collect

If you are dealing with the unexpected expenses of an untimely death, the thought of paying a hefty legal bill on top of everything else may sound overwhelming. That is why our firm proudly operates on a contingency basis. We only take a fee as a percentage of any compensation we recover on your behalf. In other words, if we are not successful, you will never owe us anything. You can rest easy knowing there are no up-front legal expenses or surprise contingency rate changes in your future.
