Investigating All Aspects of a Fatal Accident
Washington state law allows family members to seek restitution from the person whose misconduct caused a fatal accident. But the reality is that while most wrongful death claims are significant in value, most fatal accidents are caused by people with limited financial resources. Even if you win a million-dollar case, the defendant doesn’t have a million dollars to pay you.
And while you may assume that’s the end of the line, an experienced attorney will work to uncover all potential avenues for compensation. The right lawyer knows these cases can be much more than just an insurance claim.
