What Makes a Death a “Wrongful Death?”

While any death of a loved one is tragic, a “wrongful death” describes a preventable death. These deaths are caused because someone was negligent or willfully committed wrongdoing. When this happens, victim’s families may be entitled to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.

How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Washington?

We know that this is a painful time for your family, and you might not feel like dealing with a lawsuit right now. But in Washington State, you only have a short window of time to bring a claim forward (RCW 4.16.080).

At Ladenburg Law, our goal is to handle as much of the legal burden as possible so you can focus on your family.

How Much of a Settlement Should We Expect?

In the State of Washington, there are two different kinds of damages you’re eligible t receive compensation for in wrongful death cases:

  • Economic Damages are the losses you can assign actual dollar amounts to. They are totaled up from bills, expenses, and lost wages. For example, funeral expenses and doctor bills are economic damages.
  • Non-economic Damages are the subjective losses related to your loved one’s passing. As you might imagine, these are difficult – if not impossible – to quantify. Emotional and psychological suffering are examples of non-economic damages. Your family is entitled to receive compensation as an acknowledgement of the pain and suffering you have endured.

When you involve one of our lawyers, we’ll help determine the potential value of your claim. Armed with that information, we’ll get to work and fight for a fair settlement on your family’s behalf.
