Wrongful Death Accidents Can and Do Happen in Renton
If a family member or loved one has died or was killed as a result of negligence or misconduct on the part of another, a civil action charging another may be brought to recover damages.
There are legal complex issues that must be taken into consideration that, during a time of considerable grief, are best handled by an experienced wrongful death attorney. For example, a wrongful death lawsuit may only be brought by the personal representative of the decedent’s estate.
