Dealing with the untimely death of a loved one is never easy, and the trauma of the loss may be exacerbated if the negligence of someone else caused the death. If you face such a situation, you might have grounds for a wrongful death claim. Such lawsuits are typically complicated and subject to a statute of limitations, but if you are in Burnaby or the greater Vancouver area, the lawyers at Michael Golden Law Corporation are available to guide you through the legal proceedings.
Our team of compassionate lawyers can assess the circumstances of the death, help formally establish negligence and present the claim in civil court. We are aware of the typical tactics of insurance companies that want to settle claims quickly, and we can advocate on your behalf to ensure maximum compensation. While we focus on the legal proceedings, you can grieve the loss of your loved one.
However, you will also have to deal with the financial consequences of the tragedy at this challenging time. Financial losses that are typically included in a court’s monetary award are medical expenses incurred in the time leading up to death along with the costs related to end-of-life arrangements. The court will also consider other documented financial losses.
With almost 30 years of experience in dealing with personal injury and wrongful death claims of people in Burnaby and around Vancouver, our multi-lingual team can do whatever is required to help you recover your losses. The lawyers at Michael Golden Law Corporation can protect your legal rights and provide all the necessary support and guidance throughout ensuing legal proceedings. We aim to help everyday people who suffered loss or extraordinary injury recover the monetary losses they sustained.
