Wrongful Death 

We help determine whether or not a lawsuit is right for you in the case of wrongful death.

The sudden loss of a loved one through a car accident, fall, or medical negligence is hard enough to cope with. Sometimes, even contemplating a lawsuit over this loss can be exhausting. It is not the right thing to do in every case. We can help you sort through whether or not a lawsuit is right for you and your family. We will evaluate the circumstances and carefully assess not only the personal and financial impact of the loss to you, but the impact of proceeding with a lawsuit on you and your family. In Ontario, where a lawsuit involves the death of an individual, the law provides for a two-year limitation period from the date of death to start your case. In some cases, it could be even sooner. Find out if we can help and if starting a lawsuit is right for you and your family.

“Barb’s team truly demonstrates respectful interdependence, superior intelligence, diligence and precision encapsulated in warm compassion. Their strength comes from the roots of truth and honesty and with that honesty they built support for us. When an agreement was reached at mediation, we celebrated the end of a four-year journey. At the same time, I knew I would miss the ongoing support, caring approach and cheerful competence that greeted my calls every time I had a question or concern. Have no hesitation to seek legal representation from Legate & Associates. Barb is simply the best!!!”
