Dealing With the Aftermath of a Fatal Collision

The Washington Traffic Safety Commission has a plan titled “Target Zero”, with the goal of decreasing deaths and serious injuries on Washington’s roadways to zero by 2030. Despite this, accidents statewide continue to take the lives of hundreds each year.

Moreover, enduring an unexpected fatal loss can feel impossible to do alone. The silver lining is, you do not have to. Consulting with an experienced attorney who can help you with a possible wrongful death claim is the best thing you can do following the deadly incident.
