Wrongful Deaths in Snohomish County
Wrongful deaths are unfortunate and can happen under a variety of circumstances. Many wrongful death cases make the news, mainly because, by definition, wrongful deaths could have been prevented with proper diligence.

Many times, wrongful death suits can be settled outside of court. This isn’t necessarily applicable to all wrongful death cases, and you shouldn’t assume that it will happen with your case. However, it is a regular occurrence in the legal system regarding wrongful deaths.

It’s important to note that wrongful death suits are civil cases and exist separately from criminal charges and cases. Monetary settlements in and outside of court can range from very little to very large amounts. It will all depend on how much you’re entitled to and how this Everett Wrongful Death Lawyer can aid you in getting full compensation.

What the Law Says About Wrongful Deaths

Obviously, as the title suggests, wrongful deaths are unfortunately caused by negligent people in their duties and responsibilities. Though the person that has been wronged has passed away, family members can bring the case to court to receive economic and noneconomic retribution.

The first family members eligible to file a wrongful death case and receive benefits are spouses, registered domestic partners, and children. If the deceased has no one to fulfill those roles, the case can be filed for parents or siblings to benefit from the wrongful death suit.

While the state files criminal cases, wrongful death cases (and civil cases like it) are filed by surviving members of the deceased’s family and only pertain to money damages. Retribution is monetary in wrongful death suits, and no criminal charges are brought upon opposing parties.

Perhaps most important to remember is that you must file a wrongful death suit within three years of your loved one’s passing. If it’s not filed within that time period, the courts will likely refuse to hear it, meaning you’re no longer eligible for compensation for the opposing party’s negligence.

I would highly recommend Rico Tessandore. He's responsive, knowledgeable, professional, ethical, and a pleasure to work with. Rico genuinely cares about his clients, and he works hard to get them the best possible outcome. I consulted with Rico after a tripping-and-falling incident. I had some medical expenses and wanted some advice. Rico listened to what I had to say and went to work for me. I can't thank him enough for all the work he did. He went way above and beyond my expectations. I can't say enough good things about him and his staff.

Rico represented me in a motor vehicle accident, which occurred just weeks before my wedding. I was injured, stressed, and felt like my life was unraveling. Rico listened to me, and was not just a wonderful attorney, but also a great friend throughout the process. Rico was a tremendous help to me and my family, and I am forever grateful. I could not have asked for a better attorney.

You May Be Entitled To This and More

Like we mentioned before, monetary compensation in these cases can vary. Some cases result in very high payouts, while others don’t. What’s important is that you’re getting compensated for the loss of your loved one, and those responsible are being held accountable.

These damages and compensations that are paid out can cover a variety of charges. This can include things like your loved one’s last medical bills, funeral expenses—even lost income that would have been generated if your loved one hadn’t passed.

Moreover, you can ask for retribution for the pain and suffering of enduring this loss. What will be awarded to you depends on the situation, but no one should have to suffer such a loss at the hands of misconduct without financial compensation.

Family members like spouses, domestic partners, and children, step- or otherwise, can ask for retribution based on loss of care and companionship. It’s harder for family members like parents or siblings to file for this, but it could be possible.

You’re already dealing with the loss of your loved one—let us help you get the compensation you deserve to cope with this immeasurable loss. Give the Everett Wrongful Death Attorney a call to make sure you’re properly compensated for the loss of your loved one.
