What Is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death occurs when, through no fault of the deceased, he or she dies. Some of the most common reasons for wrongful death are any motor vehicle accidents, but especially motorcycle and truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, medical malpractice, and sometimes even traumatic brain injury. If someone you love has been the victim of a wrongful death you may be eligible to receive benefits from the liable party. Contact Anderson Law to find out what you can do to recover the losses you desrve.
 

What Are The Elements of a Wrongful Death Claim?

There are four elements of a wrongful death case:
  1. The defendant had a duty to the deceased,
  2. The defendant breached that duty,
  3. The death was caused by the defendant’s breach of duty, and
  4. The surviving relatives suffered damages as a result of the loss.
 

Who Can Bring a Wrongful Death Claim?

In Washington, only certain relatives of the deceased may bring a wrongful death claim. They are:
  • The surviving spouse, children, and step-children of the deceased.
  • Parents and siblings of a deceased adult who were substantially dependent on the deceased for financial support.
  • Parents of a deceased minor child.
  • And others who have suffered a loss.
 

What losses can be recovered in a wrongful death case?

Relatives of the deceased may be eligible to recover the following types of losses:
  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • The victim’s future financial earnings
  • Loss of benefits and insurance
  • General damages for pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
Proving these losses in court may require testimony from medical experts, expert economists, and other expert witnesses.
