Edmonds Wrongful Death Lawyer
Holding the Responsible Party Accountable
Wrongful death is a loss of life that results from the reckless or negligent behavior of another. Wrongful death lawsuits can arise in many ways, including as a result of vehicle accidents, work-related accidents, poorly maintained properties, medical malpractice, dog bites, construction accidents, and dangerous/defective products.
At Huppert Law Firm, PLLC, our wrongful death lawyer in Edmonds is dedicated to advocating for grieving families.
Eligibility for Compensation
Each state has rules regarding who can sue for wrongful death. Washington allows the representative of the deceased’s estate to bring a wrongful death lawsuit. This may include spouses, domestic partners, children, parents, siblings, grandparents, and grandchildren. We can advise you regarding eligibility to file a lawsuit under Washington law.
Fighting for Justice & Compensation
When seeking compensation for a wrongful death, it is often necessary to navigate a variety of state and federal laws, depending on the specifics of the case.
Our Edmonds wrongful death lawyer is knowledgeable of laws pertaining to wrongful death cases; we can conduct an investigation to ensure that liability is properly established to build the strongest possible case for your family.
We seek to recover compensation for damages that include:
- Medical treatment prior to your loved one’s death
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of future income and benefits
- Loss of inheritance
- Loss of companionship and support
- Mental pain and suffering
We understand that the grieving process is long and family members are often not able to think about a lawsuit in the immediate aftermath of the loss of a loved one. However, it is important to remember that the state has set time limits on filing a lawsuit.
In Washington, you have three years from the date of the death to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Contacting us early enables us to fully investigate your case to determine liability and gather evidence to support your claim.
