When a person is killed due to the negligence or carelessness of someone else, this is considered wrongful death. The deceased person’s immediate family will be faced with filing a wrongful death claim in order to obtain compensation for the loss of their loved one. Ontario's Family Law Act provides for recovery of financial loss resulting from the death, as well as a loss of care, guidance and companionship.
