    Wrongful Death Attorney Mercer Island


    As a wrongful death attorney serving Mercer Island residents, my professional legal team and I understand the heartbreaking circumstances you may be enduring in the loss of your loved one.

    We also understand that while a lawsuit may not have entered your mind, it is an important consideration if the loss of your loved one occurred as a result of the negligence, wrongdoing, or default on the part of another person or entity.

    In the State of Washington, legal action may be brought against those responsible for the decedent’s death by the survivors or beneficiaries of the deceased who have the right to file a lawsuit for monetary compensation as a result of negligence or harmful act resulting from, but not limited to:

    • Criminal behavior such as an assault
    • A product defect
    • Exposure to substances or hazardous conditions at the workplace
    • Motor vehicle accident as a result of reckless or gross negligence of another
    • Medical malpractice
    • Accidents in the workplace such as falls or electrocutions

    Call my law office to schedule a free case consultation to learn how we can help you recover all compensation due you under the law.

    Wrongful Death Claim Mercer Island


    A wrongful death claim in Mercer Island may be brought by the surviving family members or loved ones of the decedent against a person, persons, or entity that is believed to be responsible.

    We can guide you through the complicated process of filing legal action to help you recover financial compensation available to you under the law by settlement, arbitration or trial.

    The following are damages that may be paid to the deceased, but not limited to:

    • Last medical expenses of the decedent
    • Funeral and burial costs
    • Pre-death pain and suffering
    • Savings of the deceased
    • Lost wages and income of the decedent
    • Loss of inheritance
    • Costs of related property damages
    • Loss of companionship, care and nurturing
    • Loss of consortium

    To hold the defendant liable, we can help you meet the burden of proof by showing that the defendant owed the victim a duty of care, that this duty was breached by the defendant, that the breach of duty was a direct and proximate cause, and that wrongful death caused the damages that you, as the plaintiff, are attempting to recover.
