Committed to Pursuing Justice and Fair Compensation for Families
Under British Columbia's Family Compensation Act, when a person has been killed in a motor vehicle accident or other incident caused by someone else's wrongful act, negligence or default, a civil action can be brought for the benefit of his or her spouse, parents and children.
Wrongful death claims are similar to personal injury claims in many ways, but they are conducted under a different set of procedural rules and theories of damages.
As a general rule, compensation in these cases is based on the financial and personal support the deceased person would have provided to his or her dependants throughout his or her lifetime had the accident not occurred. Our lawyers are experienced at helping our clients prove these claims.
