Wrongful Death Archives

Wrongful death lawsuit possible following deadly crash in Langley

A character in the classic movie, American Graffiti, says it all: Driving is a serious business. Deadly serious, one might add without exaggeration, for the very good reason that loss of life may result. Driving has become such a commonplace activity that drivers can sometimes neglect to remain fully alert. When an ambulance driver is involved, such neglect can be particularly pernicious and may be the primary cause for commencing a wrongful death lawsuit.

When fatal car accidents occur in British Columbia, the crash investigation process is complicated, often involving specialised operations by different agencies. One such accident -- that could potentially result in a wrongful death claim -- occurred in West Kootenay on a recent Tuesday. A spokesperson for traffic services said it was a head-on crash that trapped several occupants in their vehicles.

Adverse weather in British Columbia makes travelling conditions hazardous, requiring drivers to be particularly skilful if they want to travel on wet, slushy roads. This applies especially to areas with high elevations such as the Coquihalla. A fatal crash near Kamloops in which a passenger was killed could result in a wrongful death claim.

Wrongful death claims may follow fatal crash in British Columbia

A devastating crash occurred on a British Columbia Highway on a recent Friday evening. According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the accident happened on Lougheed Highway in Coquitlam. Losing a loved one is naturally a traumatic experience which can be exacerbated by the financial consequences, and wrongful death claims may follow this tragedy in which several lives were lost.

Personal injury lawsuit after crash may cover medical expenses

Drivers on British Columbia roads are responsible for the safety of their passengers. For this reason, no driver should get behind the wheel of an automobile if he or she is under the influence of alcohol, drugs or prescribed medication. The same goes for drivers who know they suffer from medical conditions that could cause emergencies if they fail to manage their illnesses -- else they could be held liable for medical expenses and other financial damages of a passenger injured in a crash.

Wrongful death claim may follow hit-and-run crash

Following the death of her daughter in March this year, a British Columbia mother now has to adjust to living without a loved one. The person responsible for the death of this young woman will spend four-and-a-half years behind bars and is banned from driving for 10 years. The 25-year-old woman lost her life in a hit-and-run accident in Burnaby. Grounds for a wrongful death claim in civil court clearly exist.

Wrongful death claims may follow fatal crash on Highway 1

Losing a loved one unexpectedly is naturally a devastating experience. Knowing that another person's negligence caused such a death can make the loss even more traumatic. Along with the heartache and grief, the surviving family members also have to cope with unanticipated expenses. Although no amount of money can fill the void left by such a tragedy, financial losses may be recoverable by filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Such a lawsuit may follow a fatal crash that occurred on Highway 1 in British Columbia on a recent Saturday.

Who can file wrongful death lawsuit, and what is recoverable?

Upon the unexpected death of a loved one, the pain can be unbearable. Learning that his or her death resulted from another person's negligence can exacerbate the trauma, and those left behind may wish to see justice done. However, if a criminal court sends such a person to jail, the surviving family members are left facing unanticipated expenses and the loss of his or her support and care. This is where a wrongful death claim can bring relief.

When a family loses a loved one in an accident caused by the negligence of another party, the loss will likely be more devastating than if it was a natural death. Although the surviving family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit, the void left by the loss will remain. A British Columbia pedestrian recently lost his life when a vehicle struck him.

Financial relief is also obtainable by filing a wrongful death claim in a British Columbia civil court.
