In Alberta, those who have lost a family member due to another person or entity (such as a commercial truck driver or trucking company)’s wrongful or negligent act may have a claim for wrongful death under the Fatal Accidents Act. The Act sets out who is entitled to damages, the amount of those damages, and how to bring a claim for those damages. As the law surrounding wrongful death claims in Alberta is evolving and complex, it’s vital to consult with a knowledgeable truck accident lawyer as soon as possible after your loved one’s passing.
