Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Washington?

Importantly, not everyone can file a wrongful death claim in Washington. Generally, only the deceased’s next of kin, or the closest family relative may file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Recovering Compensation in a Wrongful Death Claim

Those who can prove their loved one lost their life as a direct result of the negligent or unlawful intentional act of another should recover compensation to help them deal with the losses they’ve incurred. This compensation can address monetary and non-monetary damages, including:

  • The cost of medical treatment the individual received prior to passing away
  • The cost of lost wages the individual would have provided to your family
  • The value of household jobs the individual typically performed that you now need to pay for
  • Pain and suffering
  • The loss of companionship or guidance
  • The loss of enjoyment of life
  • The cost of funeral expenses

Time Limits on Wrongful Death Claims in Washington

Typically, in Washington, families of decedents looking to bring wrongful death claims must do so within three years of the date of death. Waiting longer than this timeframe will likely result in them permanently losing their right to sue. No one wants to rush into the legal process after such a traumatic event, and we understand this, however, it’s important you take action while you still can.
