Wrongful Death & Fatal Accidents
A wrongful death claim may arise when a person dies as a result of the negligent, careless, intentional or reckless acts of another person or entity (including a corporation or governmental agency). The death could occur because of a car accident, medical malpractice, an on-the-job injury, nursing home abuse or neglect, or from any other careless conduct.
In most wrongful death cases, the estate and certain surviving family members will have a claim for damages. The estate is typically allowed to claim damages for the decedent’s lost earnings, medical expenses, funeral expenses, and conscious “pain and suffering” experienced by the decedent before death. Certain surviving family members may also have individual claims for damages as a result of the decedent’s death, including loss of consortium (i.e., destruction of the relationship) and emotional distress.
Many people are surprised to learn that Washington law only allows certain family members to recover for a wrongful death of a loved one. In most fatal accident cases, recovery is limited to a surviving spouse and children. In some death cases the decedent’s surviving siblings and parents may also have separate claims if they are financially dependent on the decedent at the time of death.
If your family member or loved one has died due to the negligence of another, the Davis Davis Law Group can help. We have nearly 15 years of experience investigating, pursuing and settling wrongful death claims. Seattle wrongful death attorney Chris Davis and the Davis Law Group have extensive experience working with the reputable experts necessary to secure a fair and reasonable wrongful death settlement.
