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 contacted Mr. McMullan due to a personal injury claim regarding a vehicle collision, that resulted in my requiring back surgery. My case was complex as I had previously suffered unrelated injuries and surgeries. The issues were to differentiate the result of previous injuries from the current situation. Mr. McMullan handled my case with professionalism and compassion. He took the stress of dealing with the insurance company completely off my shoulders and held my interests to the highest regard. The staff at Campbell, Burton and McMullan are of the highest caliber. I will definitely refer anyone requiring legal services to this firm.

Tom, I just wanted to send you a final thank you for your services. I can't begin to tell you how impressed I am with your character and integrity. Thanks again.

B.L. (Langley)

Over the four and a half years that I was dealing with ICBC, Tom took an interest in me, not just the case. This helped to remove some of the stress a car accident causes. I highly recommend Tom Murphy and Campbell, Burton & McMullan, to anyone who has to deal with ICBC after an accident.
