TUKWILA WRONGFUL DEATH LAWYER

Losing a loved one unexpectedly in a tragic accident is one of the most upsetting experiences someone could ever go through.

At the office of the Khan Law Firm PLLC, our Tukwila wrongful death lawyer understands what you’re going through and is here to help. While nothing can truly right the severe wrong that you and your family have suffered, our lawyer may be able to help you recover financial compensation. To learn more, please call our Tukwila wrongful death lawyer directly today.

The state may pursue a criminal investigation of the case, which might or might not result in the other party’s conviction. This case exists independently of your wrongful death claim. Regardless of whether the other party is found guilty of behaving in a malicious or reckless manner, he or she can still be liable for your damages if you can demonstrate that his or her negligence caused the death.

WRONGFUL DEATH

The Basics of a Wrongful Death Claim

As found in the Revised Code of Washington (RCW) 4.20.010, an action for a wrongful death suit may be brought when the death of a person is caused by the “wrongful act, neglect, or default of another person.” While the wrongful death suit can be brought forth to recover damages for the decedent’s beneficiaries, only the personal representative of the deceased’s estate has the legal standing to bring forth a suit. The personal representative may be named in the decedent’s will or appointed by the court. 

If the plaintiff in the wrongful death action can prove that the decedent’s death would not have occurred but for the wrongful act, neglect, or default of the defendant, then the plaintiff can recover damages on the behalf of the decedent’s estate. Both economic and noneconomic damages are recoverable. Examples of economic and noneconomic damages recoverable in a wrongful death action include medical expenses incurred prior to death, lost wages and loss of earning capacity, funeral and burial expenses, loss of companionship or parental guidance, and more.
