The death of a family member is a devastating event, particularly when death results from an accident or another person’s negligence. In Seattle, fatalities in high-impact car accidents are all too common, as are fatalities resulting from pedestrian and bicycle accidents and accidents involving large trucks.

When a loved one is lost, it is no time for you or your family to deal with insurance adjusters and investigators.

Wrongful death cases are often complex and come in many different variations. Depending on the circumstances, the deceased individual’s estate often will bring a claim or lawsuit against the party responsible for the wrongful death, whether from a car accident or work site accident or other type of accident. Thorough investigations are often necessary in order to establish the facts and cause of the wrongful death.
