Aggressive And Effective Representation For Wrongful Death Claims In Oregon, Washington And California
A wrongful death claim arises out of the negligence, recklessness, intentional or other wrongful conduct of another. A wrongful death case is brought by the personal representative of the decedent’s estate for the benefit of the decedent’s beneficiaries. This includes a surviving spouse, children and other family members. The personal representative is usually the decedent’s spouse or family member.
The personal representative in a wrongful death claim can recover damages for all expenses caused by the wrongful death, including medical bills, ambulance rides, burial and memorial expenses, and lost wages. The personal representative can also recover monetary damages for the loss of future income your loved one would have earned throughout their entire life, pensions and other pecuniary loss. The decedent’s beneficiaries can also be compensated for the loss of society and companionship of the decedent. Punitive damages may also be available when the death is caused by severe reckless, egregiousness or intentional conduct.
The statute of limitations on a wrongful death claim is generally three years. The claim must be brought by a personal representative approved by the court in the county where the decedent died or resided. Time is of the essence when it comes to the appointment of a personal representative.
