The loss of a loved one is devastating. And no amount of money can ease the suffering of a surviving spouse, domestic partner, parents, children, siblings and grandparents. However, surviving family members may be entitled to compensation from various sources including CPP Death Benefits, life insurance policies, Section B benefits connected to automobile insurance policies and claims made under the Fatal Accidents Act. The lawyers at Pefanis Horvath have helped many families navigate the system and secure financial compensation to preserve their financial wellbeing. We are committed to managing these cases with the compassion, empathy and dedication they deserve.
The types of damages that can be sought in a wrongful death suit include:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Future financial support to surviving spouse, children and other family members
- Value of household services that would have been provided by the deceased
- Loss of companionship, affection, love, care and comfort
Because the loss of a loved one can completely alter the life of the surviving family, it is important to talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer before accepting any settlement offers.
