Claim By A Family Member Of The Injured

The personal injury lawyers at QTMG law firm have several years of combined experience in helping injured victims receive the compensation they deserve and gain access to quality medical assistance. In addition, our lawyers also recognize that their help cannot be limited to the injured.

The family members of the injured also suffer financially in the form of housekeeping chores, out-of-pocket expenses and income losses. These family members deserve to be compensated accordingly for their time and effort invested. A family member could be the spouse, children, grandchildren, parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters of the injured.

Our lawyers are not only well versed in the personal injury law but are also knowledgeable in Ontario's Family Law Act (FLA). The FLA enables family members to sue for their financial losses that arise due to the time spent in care, guidance and companionship as a result of the victim's injuries.

When a family member has been injured and is recovery from his or her injuries, you as the caretaker have added responsibility. Some of your responsibilities include caring for the injured at home, such as additional cooking, cleaning, bathing and other daily chores, that you might not have to do before the accident. Your responsibilities do not end at home. You may also have to drive the injured family member to him or her to visit the doctor, physiotherapist, massage therapist, bank, grocery, and other places where they are now unable to go by themselves. As your lawyer we are able to access your damages based on the economic losses.
