Vancouver Wrongful Death Lawyers
What are wrongful death cases?
The death of a loved one can be overwhelming, and the impact from losing that person’s guidance, love and economic support can be devastating to surviving family members.
Wrongful death cases have come about as a means of placing responsibility on those who have caused, or are negligent in, the death of a family member. Sometimes, this can be a death that results from a motor vehicle accident.
You are a potential claimant if you are a spouse, child, parent, stepparent or grandparent of the deceased. Even if you don’t think you qualify, you should consult with one of our Vancouver wrongful death lawyers, because the definition of a spouse, child, and parent is fairly broad.
