The purpose of insurance is to try to bring your life back to what it was before your accident. That of course applies to accidents where people have to live with serious injuries, but it also applies to accidents where people pass away because of their injuries.

A family member’s passing can have serious financial consequences for their family. Funeral arrangements can be very expensive, and there’s also a long-lasting financial impact if that person was earning income. It can be the difference between making a mortgage payment and losing the house.

That’s why in certain cases, family members can make an insurance claim on behalf of the family member that passed away. That can include spouses, children, and parents.

Our legal team has handled many fatal accident cases, so you can trust our expertise. Fatal accident claims can include many types of insurance claims, including:
  • Canada Pension Plan death benefits
  • Section B “No-Fault” benefits
  • Life insurance
  • Funeral expenses
  • Head of household indemnity
This type of accident can be one of the most difficult to deal with. We offer free consultations to help with any questions you may have.

Do I really need a lawyer?

Hiring a lawyer to represent you is completely optional. You can choose to handle your insurance claim alone if you want to.

Some people choose to do it themselves to save on legal fees, but we believe that in those cases the outcome will be worse than if they had hired a lawyer to represent them.

The insurance company has a whole team of adjusters and lawyers on their side with years of experience in making sure insurance payouts - including yours - are as small as possible. A lawyer with experience in insurance claims, on the other hand, will fight for you to make sure you get the full compensation you deserve.

What our clients say

What drove me to hire a lawyer was needing a lawyer to defend against injustice, because the insurance company did not want to understand at all that I had a serious problem caused by an accident.

Mathieu showed me patience, listened and wanted to know my problem and the details of my situation with the insurance company.

The claim process is a time when you have to be patient; I was too stressed, discouraged, but I also felt supported by my lawyer.

Mathieu helped a lot by encouraging me, looking for different experts, such as the accident pain doctor, the kinesiologist and analyzing various reports from the family doctor, psychologist and acupuncture.

Currently, on the side of justice, I feel relieved. Harassment from the insurance company is over, and I do not have to run after them to pay for my treatments.
