Fatal Accidents

It is always a crushing experience to lose a loved one, but when that death comes as the result of a fatal accident, its impact can be doubly devastating to the grieving parties.

An unforeseen death can leave the surviving family members in a state of emotional shock that may be unnecessarily compounded by the financial and domestic effects of the loss. Nearly 800 Ontario residents die in accidents in a typical year, and many of these tragedies occur in the Greater Hamilton and South Western Ontario Area.

If your family has been affected by a fatal car accident, a fatal motorcycle accident, a fatal truck accident, a fatal aircraft accident or any other type of fatal accident, you may be feeling isolated and without legal recourse.

Moreover, you may be at a loss as to how to cope with the financial situation caused by the death.

At Mackesy Smye law firm, we help the families of fatal accident victims regain the balance they need to continue living. We cannot restore your lost loved one, but our personal injury lawyers can provide the advice and the representation required to make certain that your rights are respected by insurance companies (either the deceased party’s or the company representing the person who was at fault) and governmental bodies.

If involved in a fatal car accident or other fatal accident you need an experienced accident lawyer.

During your free consultation, one of our experienced and considerate personal injury lawyers will examine the specifics of your case. Together, we will advance a claim that may include compensation for funeral costs, lost income and the loss of the departed member’s companionship, guidance and household contributions.

Ontario’s personal injury laws were established to protect the rights of families and our respected team of lawyers has the expertise to ensure that you receive fair treatment under these laws.
