Toronto Wrongful Death Lawyer
Representing Survivors of Those Who Died a Wrongful Death
Awrongful death is one that should not have happened, but was caused by the carelessness, recklessness or negligence of another person or organization. I am Donald L. Granatstein, Q.C., LL.M., a Toronto personal injury lawyer who helps survivors recover financial compensation after the wrongful death of a loved one.
The damages are based on several factors, including the services the deceased provided to the survivor and the age of the deceased.
If your 70-year-old mother was retired and no longer providing financial support for you, you probably would have little claim for damages, should she die a wrongful death. If she provided daycare for your children or managed your office so you could deal with customers, you could make a claim for the loss of her services. Damages would be much larger in the case of a parent who died while financially supporting several young children.
I realize that no amount of money can truly compensate you for your loss. A wrongful death lawsuit can help make up for certain financial losses. It can also encourage more responsible behavior by the individuals or organizations that caused your family member’s death.
