As in most states, Washington state law regarding wrongful death is complex and requires the help of an attorney who has specific experience with such cases. There are two main statutes in Washington that govern wrongful death: survival action and general wrongful death statute. The first is brought on behalf of the deceased and pertains to property or damages. There are two tiers of relatives who have the legal right to recover damages from the death of a child. General wrongful death applies to a parent’s cause of action upon a child’s death.
