Help For Grieving Families
In the wake of a fatal accident, you may feel overwhelmed by grief and loss. As you sort through your loved one’s affairs, you may wonder how you will handle all the unexpended expenses caused by the accident. These feelings can compound when your loved one was the primary earner. But you do not need to suffer financial stress on top of everything else.
Pursuing a wrongful death claim against the party responsible for accident allows you to collect damages for:
- Medical expenses from the accident until your loved one’s death
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Lost wages
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
Under certain circumstances, Washington courts may also award punitive damages to deter future wrongdoing.
As with any other injury claim, you must be able to demonstrate that the other party was at fault through factual evidence. Although the process of building a wrongful death claim can be highly emotional, learning more about the specifics of the accident may help you find closure.
