Frequently Asked Questions

Typically, immediate family members of the victim are legally allowed to file a wrongful death claim. This can mean a parent, spouse, child, or other family members, depending on the family dynamic. In most cases, you must bring your lawsuit within two years of your loved one’s death, but there are exceptions. The circumstances surrounding the death, who was at fault, and other factors can all affect this timeframe.

To protect your rights, and your opportunity to seek justice, it’s important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. We understand the difficulty in making that first call, but we’ll make the remainder of the process as easy for you as we possibly can. You should gather what evidence you can while it is fresh, including pictures, emails, interviews, and contact information of witnesses to make the case go as smoothly and quickly as possible.

Our Edmonton wrongful death lawyers will guide you through the process, but in general, you can expect to receive the following kinds of damages:

  • Damages suffered by the victim before their death, such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, and property damage
  • Funeral costs, including burial and travel expenses
  • Loss of financial support
  • Pain and suffering of the survivors
  • Punitive damages

Regardless of the cause of death, the law is clear. Negligence resulting in death is a punishable offence. Not only will justice be served, but by pursuing legal action you may be able to prevent similar tragedies from happening in the future.
