If the death of a family member has resulted from the careless and negligent actions of an individual or corporation, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your loss. We can help you determine who was responsible for your loss and we can work with you to hold the responsible party accountable.
The Family Compensation Act allows for financial compensation to be paid to the surviving family members. Financial compensation may include: funeral and other medical expenses, loss of future financial support and loss of companionship. There are a number of factors that are taken into consideration to determine the appropriate compensation. These factors include the victim’s age, overall health at the time of the accident, earning capacity and number of children or dependents at the time of the accident.
Where the lost loved one is a primary income earner, the remaining family members may have difficulty in making ends meet. Although no amount of money can make up for the loss of a loved one, we can help ease the financial burden resulting from your loss.
