Family members who have lost a loved one through the negligence of another person need to be aware that they can bring a wrongful death claim for damages under Ontario’s Family Law Act, says Toronto personal injury lawyer Andrew M. Lee.
“I would say that it’s important for anybody experiencing the loss of a loved one or who knows of someone who may be going through such a situation to consult with a lawyer and become aware of their rights. If a breadwinner dies, for example, and there are children involved and there’s a dependent spouse — especially if the breadwinner’s young — that can certainly provide for a very substantial claim,” says Lee, founder and principal of Lee & Associates Personal Injury Lawyers.
