Find Out if You May Need a Washington Wrongful Death Attorney

When a loved one dies, it is absolutely normal to feel a wide range of emotions, from sadness and loneliness to guilt and fear to anger and denial. When a loved one dies in a sudden, violent accident – such as a car crash, botched surgery, work injury, or fall – these emotions can be even more intense. In many cases, we’ve talked to clients who aren’t sure whether they have a Seattle wrongful death lawsuit or whether they are simply reacting to the tragedy of the event.

Although it can be difficult to think about legal issues after such a loss of life, and while justice and compensation are not likely your greatest concerns after an accident, it is important that 1) whoever was at fault for the accident is help responsible and 2) the family of your loved one receives the support that they need after his or her death.

In the midst of your emotions and in the wake of such a loss, how do you know if you have a Washington wrongful death case?
  • You believe that someone (or some entity) acted in a negligent manner. Did the doctor make a mistake that no doctor should reasonably make? Did a drunk driver cause a fatal collision? Did a dangerous area lack any warning or safety features? 
  • You believe the accident should have been prevented. If only the bridge had a warning about ice. If only the truck driver had been properly vetted. If only the employer provided proper safety equipment. 
  • This isn’t the first time a fatal accident like this has occurred. Did the accident take place at an intersection notorious for crashes? Did the city or county know about a dangerous condition? Is the deadly prescription medication already facing similar lawsuit?
