We Represent Families in Wrongful Death Cases Throughout Washington State
Our partners average more than 25 years of personal injury experience, and we have recovered millions of dollars for clients in wrongful death cases.
When a loved one is lost through wrongful death, no amount of money can make up for the loss or bring the person back. Survivors are often left with pain, anger, sorrow, and sadness. Compounding the tragic loss of a loved one is the financial hardship that may be immediately placed upon the family, particularly if the loved one was a primary breadwinner for the household.
Ressler & Tesh Understands
As Washington wrongful death lawyers, we represent the families and loved ones of those who have died as the result of the negligence of others. We understand the emotional grief that accompanies a wrongful death.
A wrongful death lawsuit may also help bring closure for the family, knowing that they have taken action to prevent someone else from experiencing a similar tragedy. When the responsible parties are held liable for their actions, a strong message is sent to society that similar wrongful actions will not be tolerated.
What Types of Damages May be Available in a Wrongful Death Action?
We help surviving families recover the full compensation to which they may be entitled in a wrongful death action in Washington. Such compensation may include:
- Pain and suffering (including fear of death),
- Medical expenses,
- Personal property damages,
- Loss of relationship,
- Lost potential earnings accumulations, and
- Costs associated with burial/cremation.
The exact types of damages that are recoverable depend on a person’s relationship to the deceased, as well as other factors. Once we understand the facts and circumstances of your case we can explain the types of compensation for which you may be eligible.
