Seattle Wrongful Death Lawyer
CASE EVALUATIONS ARE FAST, EASY, AND FREE.
After the death of a loved one, getting justice is often a necessary part of the grieving process. Allow a Seattle wrongful death attorney to help you get financial justice for your loved one’s wrongful death.
The only thing more tragic than the death of a loved one is when your loved one’s death could have been prevented. Unfortunately, other people’s negligent or reckless actions can fatally injure our loved ones, forever taking them away from us and changing our lives.
This type of tragedy shouldn’t go unpunished if someone holds the blame. That’s why the state of Washington allows the family members of deceased people to file wrongful death claims against the people responsible.
These claims attempt to restore a sense of justice for family members by providing compensation to account for the loss of a loved one. Of course, recovering this compensation isn’t easy, and nothing can truly make up for a loved one’s passing.
Still, it’s important to hold negligent parties accountable, both for you and your loved one and to prevent similar tragedies in the future. For help as you pursue wrongful death compensation, get in touch with a Seattle wrongful death lawyer at Craig Swapp & Associates.
Under Washington state law, only a handful of people can file a wrongful death claim. If you’re not one of these people, you likely can’t recover compensation for the death in question.
The law allows the following parties to file wrongful death claims in Seattle:
If you’re not on the above list, it’s unlikely that you will be able to file a wrongful death claim.
