Providing Compassionate Legal Representation in Port Orchard and the Surrounding Areas

Losing a loved one can be difficult. When their death was unexpected and caused because of another person's negligence or reckless actions, the experience can be even more devastating. In a case where someone else was at fault for your loved one's death, you may be able to pursue legal action against the liable party to recover compensation for losses and expenses you sustained. Although no amount of money can ease your suffering, it can help relieve some of the financial burdens that resulted.

You'll likely have a lot to take care of on your own and will be focusing on the wellbeing of you and your family. Our Kitsap County wrongful death attorneys, with over 45 years of experience between them, will be committed to taking on all the legal matters necessary to successfully file your claim.

What Is a Wrongful Death Claim?

In Washington, if a person lost their life because of another individual's carelessness, their surviving family may take legal action. The liable party could be held financially responsible for economic and non-economic damages that resulted from their negligent actions.

Because there is a statute of limitations (or deadline) as to when a wrongful death claim can be filed, you have only a certain amount of time to pursue the matter. If you fail to do so, your case could be dismissed. Our Kitsap County lawyers will help ensure all paperwork is timely submitted.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

Although many people can be affected by the death of a loved one, only certain individuals can take action.

In Washington, the following surviving family members can make a wrongful death claim:

  • Spouse
  • State registered domestic partner
  • Children
  • Stepchildren

In cases where the deceased was not married and did not have children, the wrongful death claim could be filed on behalf of their parents or siblings.

What Types of Actions Could Lead to a Wrongful Death Claim?

Any matter in which a person engages in reckless or negligent behavior and death of another results can lead to a wrongful death claim.

The following can cause a wrongful death:

Do I Have a Wrongful Death Claim?

If your loved one lost their life at someone else's hands, you might have a wrongful death claim. To recover compensation, you must prove that the person or business that caused the death owed a duty to your loved one. You must also show that they breached their duty, death resulted, and you suffered damages as a result.

Our Kitsap County personal injury attorneys at Glisson & Morris can help you build and present your case. We will work hard to obtain just compensation on your behalf.
