Representing the legal rights of family members who have lost loved ones because of the negligence of others
Every year, millions of Canadians lose their lives in preventable accidents. Losing someone you love can be an extremely painful experience and can leave people upset, confused and uncertain as to where to turn for help. The loss of a loved one can also create significant financial difficulty, particularly when the deceased was a household’s primary wage earner. While obtaining financial recovery from the party or parties responsible for a loved one’s accident cannot change the tragedy that occurred, it can certainly help alleviate any financial issues that occur as a result and help family members feel that justice has been served.
The lawyers at McLarty Wolf provide compassionate and understanding legal representation to the surviving family members of people who lose their lives in preventable accidents. Call our office today to discuss your case.
What kinds of accidents often lead to wrongful death claims in BC?

These kinds of claims can arise from a variety of incidents, including the following:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Medical malpractice
- Aviation accidents
- Maritime accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Accidents involving defective products
