Fatal Injuries & Wrongful Death

Fatal Injuries & Wrongful Death. Personal Injury Lawyer Tim Leigh-Bell Provides Compassionate Service Following Tragic Loss.

If you have tragically lost a family member in a deadly crash or as the result of the careless actions of another, no amount of money will compensate your loss. Aside from the grief and loss of love and companionship, however, you may also face significant financial losses that must be addressed in order for your family to recover, especially if your loved one was the primary income earner for your family.

The Law Office of Timothy H. Leigh-Bell provides compassionate services for the families of victims of fatal injuries or wrongful death in Mississauga, Milton and throughout the Greater Toronto Area. We will help you understand your rights for pursuing benefits to which your family may be entitled following such a significant loss. Our legal team will also provide supportive guidance throughout the process.

Benefits Available for Families of Victims of Fatal Injuries

Under Ontario personal injury legislation, surviving family members of a fatal accident victim may be able to recover benefits for their loss from liable parties or through their own insurance policies. These include benefits that:

  • Cover loss in household income and other economic losses
  • Provide for immediate financial needs such as funeral costs or travel expenses
  • Support children, spouses and other dependants
  • Address the loss of guidance, care and companionship
  • Provide counselling and medical support to help families cope with their loss

Additional compensation for emotional damages may also be awarded, but the recovery of such benefits is handled on a case-by-case basis. We will review the circumstances of your case and offer honest, compassionate counsel and representation to obtain the benefits to which your family is entitled.

Whether your family member was involved in a fatal car accident or suffered fatal injuries because of doctor negligence, we will protect your family’s rights and minimize the hassles of dealing with insurance agencies by negotiating with them on your behalf. Most cases are resolved through settlement or mediation, thereby limiting any further stress of a court proceeding.

We are also experienced at obtaining compensation under life insurance policies, especially in cases where the insurer is reluctant or unwilling to pay benefits to which you are entitled.
