Who can bring a wrongful death claim?

Under Washington law, wrongful death claims must be brought by the personal representative of the estate of the decedent. If no personal representative was appointed, the court may appoint a close relative to carry out these duties.

What are the damages in a wrongful death claim?

To be successful in a wrongful death suit, it must be established that the negligent acts of the defendant are the primary cause of the death of your loved one. Once liability is proven, monetary damages may be awarded for things like the following:  medical bills, funeral costs, loss of future income, and loss of care, companionship, and affection.

When must you bring a wrongful death claim?

It is important to note that there is a limited time frame in which a wrongful death claim can be filed. In Washington, the statute of limitations is generally three years from the date of death.
