Kitsap County Wrongful Death Lawyer
Wrongful Death Cases in Kitsap, Clallam & Jefferson Counties
When an individual dies due to the negligent act of another, whether a
person or corporate entity, the close family has the legal right to pursue
compensation. This is a form of justice that can be sought in civil court.
Many wrongful death claims are settled prior to litigation, but it could
be necessary to take a case to court if an insurance company fails to
come through with a reasonable settlement offer, and within a reasonable
length of time.
These are extremely tragic circumstances, and the close family is struggling
with a great deal of emotional loss, and it can be troublesome to consider
taking legal action. In fact, this type of action can be very important
to the family, as there can be extensive financial damage beyond the personal losses.
