Wrongful Death of a Parent

Spokane Wrongful Death Attorneys

Losing a parent is never easy. It can be even harder to deal with if the cause of death was preventable and caused by another person’s negligence, error, or criminal action. Under Washington State law, children and stepchildren of a deceased parent may bring a wrongful death action against a responsible party.

For more than 30 years, the wrongful death attorneys at Sweetser Law Office have been providing client-focused service with respect and integrity. Turn to us for compassionate legal representation and guidance during this difficult time.

We understand that monetary reparations cannot replace the loved one you have lost. However, pursuing a wrongful death claim is one way to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions, and will also help provide for you during this difficult time.

In a wrongful death case, a child may be entitled receive compensation for:

  • Loss of companionship and parental guidance
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Any financial support the parent had provided
  • Expenses related to the funeral or burial

The statute of limitations for a wrongful death case in Washington is three years. You will need to file no later than three years after the date of death. Common causes of wrongful death include car accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall accidents, and injury due to a defective product. We have seen all of these types of cases, and know how to navigate the courts when they arise.

Our Spokane wrongful death attorneys share over 30 years of experience seeking justice for families who have suffered unthinkable losses. When you enlist our help, know that we will handle your case with the utmost care and integrity.
