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.

Accident victim: Winter road conditions require skilled drivers

Conditions on British Columbia roads during the winter months are treacherous, and drivers who confront those dangers must be skilled and experienced. Driving large vehicles such as buses is an even bigger challenge as crashes can leave multiple passengers injured. An accident victim might seek to hold a bus driver and his or her employer financially responsible if the wreck resulted from negligent driving.

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.

After a recent British Columbia car accident involving a semi-truck, one person suffered serious injuries.
