Dealing with the loss of a loved one can be emotionally devastating under normal circumstances. That devastation is compounded if another party is responsible for the person’s passing. If you have experienced a wrongful death, you may be entitled to file a claim against the at-fault party and claim insurance benefits and compensation.
At the Vancouver law firm of Dosanjh Law Group, we are sensitive to the personal nature of a wrongful death claim. Our firm’s boutique size allows us to provide individualized client attention to families working through loss, and supplements the high quality of our legal services.
Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley Fatal Accident Lawyers Providing Experienced Counsel
The legal requirements for proving fault in a wrongful death case are unique. Since this type of claim is different from other kinds of injury claims, the experience of our legal counsel in advancing a wrongful death claim is important. We represent families who are working through the loss of a loved one due to causes including:
Motor vehicle accidents
Workplace injuries, such as equipment malfunction and electrocution
Defective products
Unsafe premises
In B.C., a claim for wrongful death is governed by the Family Compensation Act. The law outlines who is entitled to receive compensation for a wrongful death. Compensation is available to the deceased person’s:
Spouse
Parent
Child
Proving the circumstances of the loss is often a complicated process and requires experienced and committed legal representation. In addition to our legal team, our firm uses investigative services to gather the information required to advance your case. In addition to filing suit, we also deal with insurance companies on the family’s behalf to advocate for appropriate benefits to be paid out.
