Wrongful Death Accidents Can and Do Happen in SeaTac
Sadly, accidents resulting in death can and do happen most everywhere.
If a loved one or family member has died because of the negligence or misconduct on the part of another, consulting a wrongful death attorney is advisable. We say that because there are many complexities associated with these types of cases, and for the most part the facts of each case are unique.
There are certain elements that must be present in bringing a successful cause of action in the case of death as a result of negligence or misconduct on the part of another, such as:
- Death of a person

- A personal representative for the estate of the decedent
