Holding The Responsible Parties Accountable For Your Loss
A wrongful death lawsuit arises when someone dies in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness. Commonly, wrongful death lawsuits arise out of serious motor vehicle accidents and workplace accidents.
A wrongful death lawsuit can arise out of almost any type of accident, including:
In Washington, the deceased individual’s personal representative or the executor of their estate can file a wrongful death claim. When there is no will in place, the court will appoint a representative. Any damages awarded at the end of the case go to the deceased individual’s surviving heirs or family members. Typically, the surviving spouse, children, parents or siblings can obtain the damages.
Like in a personal injury claim, family members can obtain damages for economic and noneconomic losses suffered due to the accident. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may obtain damages for medical bills, funeral expenses, lost wages and financial support, lost household services and loss of companionship.
