Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Washington?

Every state has specific rules regarding who can file a wrongful death lawsuit. In some places, the surviving family members can bring a claim on behalf of a deceased loved one. In Washington, however, the personal representative of the deceased’s estate is the only party who may file a wrongful death claim. 

The deceased would have likely named the personal representative in his or her will. If no personal representative was named, the court can appoint one who can pursue litigation. 

What Damages Are Available in a Wrongful Death Claim?

In a wrongful death claim, damages are awarded to the deceased’s surviving family members. This compensation is intended to compensate the survivors for a range of losses related to wrongful death. These may include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost financial support that the deceased would have contributed
  • The cost of the deceased person’s final medical bills
  • The value of the household services that the deceased would have provided 
  • The loss of the deceased person’s love, affection, care, companionship, and training
