Spokane Wrongful Death Attorney
Representing Grieving Families in Washington State
Coping with the death of a loved one can be one of the most trying times
in your life. It has happened to me, to you, and it happens to everyone
eventually. Loss of a life is something that we must live with, accept,
and understand. However, if a loved one has been taken suddenly and unexpectedly
as a result of someone else's negligence, acceptance will never be easy.
When a family member's death has been caused by negligence or wrongdoing,
the grieving process only intensifies. We come to the conclusion that
the carelessness of the person or company that took the life of our loved
one was pointless, avoidable, and should never have happened. Rather than
allowing them to continue making excuses or blaming others, there is a
need for responsibility. In these circumstances, a
wrongful death lawsuit might be necessary to receive the closure and financial compensation
entitled to you and your family.
After a person is killed due the misconduct of another, those who were
dependent on the deceased have the
right to damages. While no amount of money can ever compensate for the loss of a loved
one, financial security in the future and the relief that comes from responsible
parties being brought to justice can provide a sense of closure and security
to surviving family members.
Supporting Surviving Family Members After The Unthinkable Happens
Sweetser Law Office, we put into practice what we hold to be true: life is precious. The life
and love of a family member is priceless. Nothing could ever prepare us
for the sudden and unexpected death of a loved one. If their death could
have been prevented, there is a need for consequences and with consequences,
a sense of closure for a family. Those responsible must be held accountable
for their actions or preventable deaths may continue.

especially when you are focused on your family. Our goal as Spokane wrongful
death lawyers is to take some of the burdens away by handling the legal
aspects required to protect your rights in the civil justice system, including

Protecting You Against Deceptive Insurance Company Tactics

their own financial liability. The insurance company will use their legal
departments and financial resources to argue the loss of your loved one
just wasn’t worth much. At Sweetser Law Office, our Spokane wrongful
death lawyers have the resources, network of professionals, and decades
of experience to take them on. We seek to show the full extent of the
damage, grief and loss, so your loved one’s death is not marginalized.
