Accidents that can Lead to Wrongful Death Claims

A wrongful death is one that was preventable and caused because someone else was careless or malicious. In our practice, some of the scenarios we’ve seen include:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Construction accidents
  • Nursing home neglect or abuse
  • Dog attacks

This list is not exhaustive. No matter what happened to your loved one, we’d like to hear from you.

How a Wrongful Death Settlement can Help Families

This should go without saying, but we recognize that nothing will replace your loss. However, we believe that if you’re eligible, you should file a wrongful death claim.

Some of the damages a settlement covers include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost wages – including estimated lifetime earnings

A settlement also accounts for the loss of the relationship and the emotional impact involved. When we meet, we can help determine the potential value of your claim and discuss your legal options.

Wrongful Death Claims – Who’s Eligible?

Only certain family members may file a wrongful death claim in the State of Washington (RCW 4.20.020). These include a spouse or state-registered domestic partner, children (including stepchildren), or parent or sibling (if there is no spouse or children). An estate representative may also be eligible to file a lawsuit on behalf of the family.

Our skilled attorneys can help your family navigate this area of the law. Please reach out.
