Toronto Wrongful Death Lawyer

Serving The Families Of Fatal Accident Victims: Ontario Lawyer Michael A. YermusThe sudden loss of a loved one can put serious stress on a family. In addition to the emotional process of grieving, families may also face financial uncertainty moving forward. If you lost a loved one in a deadly car accident or other type of accident, Yermus & Associates, and his legal team can assist you in making a wrongful death claim. We provide personalized guidance sensitive to our clients’ needs during this often traumatic time.

Making A Wrongful Death Claim

Under the Family Law Act and relevant Ontario personal injury laws, the spouses and dependants may be eligible for certain death benefits following the wrongful death of a loved one in a fatal accident. These benefits are designed to provide financial compensation for:

  • The loss of income and financial support formerly provided by the deceased
  • Additional financial support that may be necessary to cover household services he or she provided
  • The loss of guidance, care and companionship of your loved one
  • Funeral and burial expenses

Family members typically make a claim against the relevant insurance policies of the parties responsible for the accident or through their own life insurance policies. We advocate for surviving family members and dependants by negotiating with insurance adjusters ourselves, taking the steps necessary to recover the maximum amount of benefits to which they are entitled.
