Wrongful Death Attorneys

After a wrongful death, families are faced with the most difficult time of their lives

The death of a family member is always traumatic. But when a family member dies because of a negligent act, the grief, loss, and trauma are magnified. A wrongful death is the most severe form of personal injury, and sadly, is a regular occurrence across the Puget Sound region.

When a death is caused by negligence, family members need assistance to uphold their rights

Families need help to seek justice for their loved ones, and to recover from the financial losses that the death brings. The legal processes required to manage a wrongful death claim can be complex and confusing, and require an experienced wrongful death attorney.

Bill Coats possesses the experience and knowledge to help your family begin the recovery process.

Some resources that provide information and assistance to victims of wrongful death in the Puget Sound region

The region's law enforcement agencies produce reports on car accidents that result in fatalities. Links to their sites are:

The region's police departments will typically produce a traffic collision report after an injury crash. This report is a crucial piece of information needed to determine liability in a motorcycle collision. The region's major law enforcement agencies include:

Seattle Police Department Everett Police Department Marysville Police Department
Edmonds Police Department Lynnwood Police Department Lake Stevens Police Department
Mukilteo Police Department Arlington Police Department Monroe Police Department
Snohomish Police Department Mt. Vernon Police Department Anacortes Police Department

The Washington State Patrol is the repository for the state's collision records. The agency receives all Vehicle Collision Reports from law enforcement officers at the state, county, city, and town levels, along with civilians that report their own collisions. These reports are written for each vehicle collision resulting in injury or death of any person, or damage to property to $1000 or more. Go to this link to request a copy of a collision report.
