What is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death is when an individual’s death is caused by another person, entity or corporation, due to an act that was negligent, reckless, or intentional. In wrongful death cases, it is important to demonstrate that a particular party is at fault for the death. Wrongful death is considered a personal injury matter and examples of wrongful death cases include fatalities caused by car accidents, workplace injuries and pedestrian incidents.

If you are unsure whether your situation is considered wrongful death under Washington state law, we encourage you to speak with an attorney regarding your case.
