Class action lawsuit started after whale-watching disaster

In October of last year, a whale-watching boat called the Leviathan II overturned at sea, sinking below the freezing water. Six passengers died in the incident. Those who survived were exposed to severe mental and emotional trauma. There were also physical injuries, even to those who made it out. The whole incident happened off the coast of Tofino, British Columbia.

Regulatory compensation isn't always enough

In some class action lawsuits, regulatory compensation may also be generated through a parallel action. It used to be that companies could essentially mask their own responsibility with this compensation, saying they should not have to pay any more since they'd already paid out. This could hinder the action that was taken by the class action lawsuit.

Protection and advocacy for every litigation case.
