The loss of a loved one is devastating, and even more so when the circumstances are sudden and suspect. For your spouse, child, or parents to suffer because of another person’s negligence is unfathomable. The aftermath of lasting grief and trauma are only worsened by the added burden of lost income and financial ramifications.
No one deserves to suffer this fate — for families to be abandoned, dreams paralyzed, and quality of life drastically altered. Instead, you deserve answers, healing, and a viable means for rebuilding your life. Wrongful death litigation exists to provide you with these.
Zayouna Law Firm is committed to helping you seek justice and compensation for wrongful death. We will represent you in a wrongful death claim or lawsuit to help gain closure through support for the aftermath of a loved one’s loss — from funeral costs to critical long-term effects, such as loss of income, care, guidance, and companionship. In the process, we aim to help alleviate your pain and suffering from the sudden loss of a loved one.
Nothing can bring back a loved one lost, but getting answers and justice against responsible parties can help carve a path towards healing. Whether you lost your spouse because of a drunk driver, child to drowning, or parent to medical malpractice, a wrongful death claim may bring comfort, helping you cope with the harrowing loss.
With a wrongful death claim, you can rebuild your life and preserve both the loving memory and financial legacy of a loved one lost too soon. It may be impossible to put a price on lasting grief, but wrongful death litigation can compensate you for the emotional and financial fallout of the loss of a loved one. A wrongful death suit addresses these losses:
Compensation for these damages equips you with the necessary resources to cope with the sudden, traumatic death of a loved one and secure the rest of your family from financial ruin. In the face of immense grief caused by another party’s negligence, you should not have to endure financial strain.

If your spouse, child, parent, sibling, grandparent, or other family member died from the negligence or recklessness of another person, you might be able to claim wrongful death. This claim applies whether the liable party’s actions — or the lack thereof — are intentional or unintentional. Successful claims typically demonstrate measurable losses, such as financial strain due to loss of income caused by an alleged wrongful death.
Any death caused by another person’s negligence or recklessness — whether intentional or unintentional — can be grounds for wrongful death. Common examples are car, cycling, or pedestrian accidents, workplace injuries, medical malpractice, and the result of a defective product.
When filing a wrongful death claim, you will be expected to prove that the negligent party’s actions or inaction contributed directly to the death of your family member. You also need to prove that their actions or inaction were negligent or reckless, or that they deliberately caused injury or death. Finally, you will need to demonstrate measurable losses sustained to claim damages.
In Ontario, wrongful death claims have a statute of limitations or the maximum time limit you have to commence legal action. You have two years from the date of death to file a wrongful death claim. This is why you need to speak with an experienced personal injury or wrongful death lawyer right away if you suspect that another person’s negligence or recklessness caused your loved one’s death.
