If a loved one has been killed as a result of someone else’s fault, you may have cause to pursue a wrongful death claim. By definition, a wrongful death is when someone is killed due to the misconduct or negligence of another party. Such actions can be brought against an individual, a company or a government. A wrongful death claim is a civil action, meaning that apart from any criminal action that might be taken, this claim is generally for monetary retribution and compensation.

A wrongful death claim may be your primary method of obtaining the financial compensation you need and deserve in order to mitigate the loss of an important family provider. Compensation would attempt to make up for the financial contributions that family member would likely have provided if they had not died.

Wrongful death could result from a car accident or accidents that don’t involve a motor vehicle.

A wrongful death claim is sometimes the only way to ensure that the appropriate party or parties acknowledge their actions (or lack of actions) that led to the death of your loved one.

Personal Injury & ICBC Claims Testimonials

I just wanted to say thank you to Tom Murphy for working so hard on my case. It was long 5 years, and now its over. If it were not for my accident I would have never met Tom. Not only was he extremely professional but he also had a lighter side to him which put you at ease. Anytime I ever received a phone call from Tom, I was always greeted with “Hi, how are you doing,” genuinely concerned about my life and not just my case. Not typical of most people. Every year I would receive a Christmas card from Tom and his wonderful team, who by the way were extremely pleasant to talk with. There were times Tom and I would speak on the phone (not billed of course) just about life, family vacations, and people we met along the way. It wasn’t always just about the lawsuit, it was more personal than that. When my law suit was over, it made me sad to think I wouldn’t get to see or talk to Tom again. I told him this in our final meeting, and he told me ” Well I’m only a phone call away.” I thought that was so sweet and Tom, you will be missed! Thank you again for all your sincere hard work and kindness.
