Wrongful Death Lawsuits in Ontario

Some examples of common wrongful death lawsuits that occur in Ontario include:

  • A person who was injured as the result of an accident involving public transportation
  • Someone who dies as the result of a car accident with police
  • Pedestrians who are killed as the result of motor vehicle accidents that originated away from where the pedestrian was walking
  • The death of a construction worker that is suspected to be due to faulty safety procedures by the construction company
  • The death of someone using public facilities such as an elevator, stairway or walkway
  • A death as the result of negligent maintenance at an apartment complex or building owned and operated by the government

The process in Ontario discourages frivolous lawsuits. Therefore, when you bring a wrongful death lawsuit before an Ontario court, it is critically important to have all of your information prepared and your facts checked.

Some wrongful death lawsuits involving Ontario citizens are centered around incidents that happen while the person is visiting the United States. If you are part of a family that is suing for the wrongful death of an Ontario citizen that occurred in the United States, then you will want to be sure that you hire a lawyer with international experience. The process for international wrongful death lawsuits is much more complicated and requires someone with experience in those kinds of cases.

Ontario citizens should be careful when pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit. You need to hire an experienced lawyer and be very sure that you have all of your facts verified before you bring your case before a judge.
