Washington Wrongful Death Attorneys
Justice in the case of a wrongful death can never be complete because you can never get your loved one’s life back. This loss is permanent, and it will affect the future of the victim’s entire family. At Durflinger Oliver & Associates PS, attorneys Natalie Durflinger and James Oliver understand that money cannot replace that loved one, but fair compensation goes a long way to help loved ones get past this unfortunate and suddenly expensive event. Some costs claimed in a wrongful death lawsuit include the following expenses:
- Medical treatment, surgery and other immediate costs
- Hospital, therapy and doctor bills
- Pain and suffering of the victim as established by our expert witnesses
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Lost wages/lost future income
- Loss of consortium, companionship and guardianship
Seattle And Tacoma Wrongful Death Lawyers
In our successful representation of clients in wrongful death cases, our attorneys have discovered various situations that caused wrongful death. Accidents that involve negligent behavior can happen anywhere, including:
- Traffic accidents where other drivers were inattentive, fatigued, DUI, texting
- Construction falls caused by lack of safety precautions or equipment
- Defective equipment or parts failure
When another person is negligent in their duties or behavior, serious consequences may follow, including killing another person. This has been seen frequently in recent years in well-publicized cases where auto accidents were the result of tire/brake failures, or around construction sites when safety rules were ignored or proper equipment was not available for workers to use.
