Funeral costs are considerable in Canada

Losing a loved one unexpectedly and in a tragic manner can bring up feelings of pain and sadness. It can also bring up financial difficulties if there isn't a life insurance policy or other savings that can help to make the financial impact a little less. We understand that nothing will bring your loved one back to you, but if you are facing financial struggles because of your loved one's tragic death, you might choose to seek compensation for the wrongful death.

When you think solely of the final expenses of your loved one, you can easily understand why seeking compensation is something to consider. Cremation is the most popular choice for people in Canada. Around 65 percent of people who die are cremated here. On average, a cremation will cost around $600, but that doesn't include any of the extras, such as the flowers, viewing, and obituary notice.

When you think about a traditional funeral and burial, you are looking at around at least $5,000 just for a basic viewing, grave marker, cemetery pot, embalming, and similar factors. That amount can easily equal to $15,000 and even go above that amount.

There are several things to consider when you are trying to decide if seeking compensation is something you want to do. The Family Law Act of Ontario is one of the possible points to explore if you are going to seek compensation. We can help you to determine the best way to seek the compensation you need to help you keep up financially after your loved one's death.
