Wrongful Death

"Wrongful death" is the death of a person caused by the negligence or wrongful act of another. Wrongful death cases arise from auto accidents, boat accidents or airplane accidents; medical negligence; unreasonably dangerous products; work-related injuries caused by exposure to dangerous conditions or substances; criminal attacks; and supervised activities, such as sports and school activities.

When a loved one unexpectedly dies in an auto accident, boat accident or airplane accident, while a patient in a hospital or nursing home, or while at work, family members are left in shock. On many occasions, one of our most difficult challenges is determining whether the family member died naturally, from an Act of God, or because of some other person's or entity's negligence or wrongful act.

The family of a person who is wrongfully killed may recover damages in a civil action brought against the person or entity whose negligent or wrongful act caused your family member's death.

Washington State has a wrongful death statute, which requires the knowledge of a skilled lawyer to successfully navigate. Wrongful death cases are usually brought on behalf of the deceased by the surviving spouse, child or parent.

With the help of The Farber Law Group, a Washington firm experienced and knowledgeable in handling wrongful death cases, you may be able to recover damages in a wrongful death lawsuit. Please contact The Farber Law Group to discuss your case.

Client Reviews
To anyone looking for legal service, you won't find a better law team than Mr Farber and Kelly. They are very caring of your case and treat you like family. I have used them a few times and highly recommend them. Michael
Herb truly had my best interests in mind and was very knowledgeable about the law surrounding my case. He was fair and very upfront about potential outcomes of the case. I believe that he worked tirelessly to get the best settlement. Jan
Herb and team are excellent! As someone unfamiliar with the legal system, they did a great job walking us through every step so we wouldn't get overwhelmed. Our case was emotional and they never hesitated to answer a question, empathize with the challenges of the process, and at times just listen. Over the years we became close and I hope to stay connect to them even though the case is over. They helped us start a new chapter. He always made the extra effort by driving to our home when we couldn't meet him. Who makes house calls these days? Herb does! Not only did I feel like I was in good hands but I genuinely enjoyed working with them. How many people can say that about their attorney? Ashley A.
