If you have lost a loved one to an accident, there is nothing we or anyone can do to make up for your loss. Nothing can put you back to where you were before the accident.
All that we can do is help ensure that your loss and grief are not made worse by financial disaster, and that you are able to mourn without having to worry about your financial future.
At Romeo Pitaro Injury and Litigation Lawyers, we are dedicated to helping your family recover as much as possible in order to help you through your loss, and standing with you during this painful period.
The Family Law Act of Ontario allows close family members of people in fatal accidents (spouse, children, grandchildren, parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters) to pursue compensation. Our lawyers will help you obtain benefits through your insurance company, or obtain damages from the parties responsible for your loss.
Compassion During A Difficult Time
We can help you recover for losses that can be easily documented as well as those that are harder to evaluate. We can pursue damages for funeral expenses, or loss of income and travel expenses incurred while visiting or caring for your injured family member. We can also pursue damages for loss of care, guidance and companionship.
We help you recover for:
- Loss of income from the person who died
- Loss of housekeeping and caregiving if the person who died contributed to caring for the home or children
- Loss of the care, guidance and companionship of your loved one
- Lost income or other expenses incurred by surviving family members
