Wrongful Death

Bellevue Fatal Accident Lawyer

Losing a loved one in an accident is an experience that no one can ever truly understand unless one has personally endured such a loss. You are left to put the pieces of the accident together as you attempt to mourn your loss and learn to move on in your life. Often, it can be difficult to move forward without answers—answers about how the accident occurred, who is responsible, and how your family will survive financially.

And while you are coping with your tragic loss, the insurance company is working to protect its own interests. An experienced lawyer can help you understand the law, provide answers to your questions, and represent your interests in pursuing fair recovery from the negligent party's insurance company.

Caring Bellevue and Edmunds Area Wrongful Death Attorney

I am John Polito, a Bellevue fatal accident attorney who provides informative, honest, and compassionate legal guidance to the families of accident victims in Seattle, Redmond, Kirkland, Issaquah, Tacoma, and other cities in western Washington state. If you have lost a family member in a fatal car accident, slip-and-fall accident, or any other accident, I am here to help you through this difficult time.

I work diligently to hold negligent parties accountable for the harm they have caused and to help you recover the full compensation you deserve. While I recognize that no amount of money can repair the damage that has been done or repay you for your suffering, it can help you deal with financial challenges associated with your loss such as funeral expenses, final medical expenses, lost income to your family, and other damages. A wrongful death claim can also provide compensation for loss of companionship, loss of household services, and other hardships.

Recovery for wrongful death in Washington is based on specific application of wrongful death statutes. Your lawyer must have the experience and skill to apply the facts of the devastating incident as well as the harm suffered by family members due to the wrongful death of a loved one. Many times, this requires the use of experts to establish liability and damages—whether it be an accident reconstructionist, a human factors expert, or an economist to establish the financial loss to a family. I am adept at working through these challenges and building wrongful death cases using the appropriate experts.

Wrongful death cases often coincide with significant probate issues. It is important that your attorney is capable of addressing these issues without jeopardizing either the wrongful death or probate case.

You should trust your wrongful death case to a compassionate lawyer with nearly 25 years of experience in such cases. I have the experience and skill to establish liability, emotional damages, and economic losses to families devastated by the wrongful conduct of another. Additionally, I am experienced in establishing annuities, structured settlements, and other types of settlement compensation packages tailored to maximize the outcome of the settlement and minimize current and future taxation issues.

For fatal car accident, motorcycle accident, trucking accident, boat accident, falls, and all other wrongful death cases, there are no attorney fees unless I recover compensation for you.
