Top Wrongful Death Attorneys
If a person’s negligent behavior resulted in your family member’s death, it is important to quickly contact one of the wrongful death attorneys in your area. Our Seattle-based firm employs a team of reputable attorneys qualified to help you pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
Wrongful death lawsuits are filed independent of criminal charges. The burden of proof is less stringent in civil suits than it is in criminal cases. This means that even if a defendant is deemed innocent of criminal charges, he may still be found liable in a wrongful death lawsuit. Our wrongful death lawyers practicing out of Seattle will be happy to assess your case and determine if you have a viable wrongful death lawsuit.
Because there is a statute of limitations regulating the time in which a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed, it is imperative you contact our wrongful death lawyers in Seattle as quickly as possible. The statute of limitations stipulates that a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed one to three years from the time of death. The statute usually allows exceptions for deaths that were originally ruled accidental and then changed to a wrongful death. In these cases, the time limit starts from the date of the correction.
If your family has suffered the death of a loved one due to the negligent, reckless, or malicious behavior of another individual, it is imperative that you contact one of our qualified wrongful death lawyers. Our Seattle-based law firm proudly presents an elite group of knowledgeable and experienced attorneys known for their compassion and dedication. Our wrongful death attorneys have represented clients in Seattle and throughout the entire state of Washington, easing the distress of the victim’s family and assuring the responsible party is held responsible for their negligent actions.
Wrongful Death Suits
In Washington State, a legal claim for Wrongful Death is one that is created by statute. Because this statute is quite old, the laws are very quirky when applied to cases today. As a result some cases that one would think have merit actually cannot be brought. In this video, James Lambka gives an overview of Wrongful Death Claims.
