Wrongful death claims best navigated by experienced legal counsel

  Losing a loved one as the result of negligence of another person is likely one of the most heartbreaking events that any Ontario person can experience. It is not uncommon for surviving family members to experience feelings of frustration and anger after such an avoidable loss and the knowledge that they cannot bring that person back to life. However, they might recover monetary damages by filing and litigating a wrongful death lawsuit in a civil court. Although it is true that no amount of money can replace a loved one, the unanticipated financial burden might be relieved by taking such legal steps. If you are in such a situation, the prospect of navigating complex legal proceedings could seem overwhelming, especially at such an emotionally difficult time. The personal injury lawyers at Alam Law Office are ready to provide the necessary support and guidance along every step of the way.

We will consider your unique circumstances as we explain your legal options and suggest the most appropriate way to proceed with the wrongful death claim in an Ontario civil court. The Alam Law Firm will do whatever is possible to help you pursue recovery of all monetary damages sustained.

Workplace accident leads to death of employee

While it’s true that workers are hurt in accidents connected to their jobs every day, few, if any, imagine that it will happen as they head out to work. Unfortunately these incidents do occur and sometimes lead to serious injuries. In the worst cases they can even lead to death. This was sadly the case recently when a man who worked for Toronto Crane was killed. When the incident occurred, the man was in the process of dismantling a portion of an old crane. As he worked, a large piece of metal fell upon him. It pinned him down, and ultimately killed him. The accident took place on a piece of industrial property that is leased by the man’s employer. An investigation into just what happened is underway. When someone unexpectedly dies those left behind can experience a variety of difficulties including the loss of the deceased’s income and the loss of companionship and guidance. While there is nothing that can be done to bring back a deceased individual, securing financial compensation may make things easier for those left behind. Because wrongful death cases can be complex, it is generally advisable to contact a personal injury lawyer in a timely manner for assistance in these matters. If you, a friend or a family member are victims of someone’s negligence and suffering from injuries and losses, contact us to speak to one of our lawyers to know your rights and what steps you should be taking in order to protect your rights for the future.

Fatal snowmobile accidents claim lives every year in Ontario

Throughout Canada in the winter, residents and visitors alike enjoy engaging in outdoor recreational activities. One of the most exciting for many is snowmobiling. Currently more than 600,000 snowmobiles are legally registered in the country. To put the popularity of the activity in Canada into perspective, last year more than one-third of the snowmobiles sold throughout the world, were purchased by Canadians. Unfortunately, in addition to being a fun winter activity, it can also be quite dangerous. According to one statistic, in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec, up to 50 people are killed in incidents involving snowmobiles, each year. Many more are injured severely enough to require a trip to the hospital for treatment. There are a variety of accident types that snowmobilers are injured in each year. In addition to colliding with other snowmobilers, some are thrown from the machines when they hit a mound of snow. Some are struck in the face by objects they pass and others, who venture onto seemingly frozen bodies of water, fall through the ice and drowned. In still other situations, avalanches claim the lives of riders. In some situations it is the sole action of the snowmobiler that leads to a fatal accident. Other times however, the negligence of another party is to blame. In the latter instance a wrongful death lawsuit may be appropriate. If you, a friend or a family member are victims of someone’s negligence and suffering from injuries and losses, contact us to speak to one of our lawyers to know your rights and what steps you should be taking in order to protect your rights for the future.
