The process of pursuing a wrongful death claim is a challenging one. Not only do you have to understand the legal procedures of making a claim, you have to do so under immense emotional stress. Even the first step of finding a wrongful death lawyer in Calgary can be overwhelming.
We understand the strain that you’re under, and we can assist you and your family in pursuing a claim.
How Can A Wrongful Death Lawyer Help You?
After you lose a loved one in an accident, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim in Calgary. You can recover damages that include medical expenses, funeral expenses, and loss of financial support.
You can also negotiate an out-of-court settlement with an insurance adjuster working for the other side. This sounds less hostile than a formal legal proceeding but remember: the adjuster’s job is to settle the claim as cheaply and quickly as possible, not to pursue justice for your loss.
At Vogel LLP, we can help you navigate these waters. We will ensure your claim is supported by evidence, file the necessary paperwork, and protect you from harassment by other parties, including insurance adjusters. And of course, we work extremely hard to obtain appropriate compensation.
Determining the loss of financial support requires thorough analysis and often complex calculations. This includes the deceased’s work history, academic qualifications, and future salary and earning ability. Economic experts may be retained to assist this. Without professional support, you may be recovering far less than what you deserve.

Can I Afford A Lawyer?
Hiring a lawyer can be a financial strain, especially if you have limited income after the wrongful death of a family member. Fortunately, most of our lawyers will take your case on a contingency fee basis. You pay nothing until your case is settled. Fee arrangements are usually results-based, meaning you pay only if your case is successful.
