Get Help Filing a Wrongful Death Claim in Seattle or Tacoma
Wrongful death is a type of personal injury lawsuit that a person can file on behalf of a loved one who has died because of the action or inaction of someone else. You may be eligible for filing a claim if you are the spouse, domestic partner, child, stepchild, or estate representative of the deceased individual. A parent or sibling may file a claim if the deceased person is unmarried or has no children.
In Washington State, a wrongful death claim must be filed within three years of the date of death. Therefore, it’s important to act relatively quickly if you hope to seek a judgment of liability and compensation.
The experienced accidental death lawyer at Kode Law is here to help. Reach us online or call 206-866-0484 to discuss your case with us today.
