Since you lost your spouse in a car wreck, your life has been turned upside-down. Instead of saying goodbye to him as he goes to work, now you’re visiting his gravesite. With all that is going on, you don’t know if you have the energy to file a Seattle wrongful death suit. However, the financial strain on your family because of his passing is too much to bear.

Here, an attorney discusses eight things you need to know before filing a claim:

  1. Many wrongful death suits settle before they go to trial.
  2. Any wrongful death claim will be brought by your spouse’s estate.
  3. Typically, the estate has two years to file a case.
  4. Filing a wrongful death claim will not require a lot of work or energy from you if you hire a lawyer.
  5. Damages could include compensation for medical costs that incurred from the time of the accident to the time of death.
  6. Damages may include compensation for funeral costs.
  7. Damages may include compensation for past and future lost income.
  8. You may be able to file for pain and suffering, as well.

Thinking about all that is involved in filing a Seattle wrongful death claim may be too much for you to fathom, as getting out of bed is often a task in itself. When you have an experienced and compassionate attorney on your side, however, you won’t have to do much of the work at all.
