Wrongful Death Accidents Can and Do Happen in Silverdale
It is a sad fact that wrongful deaths do occur as a result of negligence or misconduct on the part of another.
In the case of loss of a loved one or family member each state has limitations on the amount of time an appointed representative on behalf of the survivors has to file a wrongful death lawsuit in court.
Because of the many complex issues that must be considered, especially during a time of considerable grief, we strongly recommend engaging the services of a wrongful death attorney.
In bringing a successful cause of action, or death action as a result of negligence or misconduct of another, there are several essential elements that must be present:
- The death of a person
- Death caused by negligence of another, or with intent to cause harm
- Surviving family members suffering monetary injury as a result of the death
- A personal representative for the decedent’s estate
Our law firm and more specifically our wrongful death attorney team has extensive experiencing in litigating cases that include these elements. For assistance in determining your legal recourse contact our law office serving the Silverdale area.
