A 29 year-old Bothell man was killed when his motorcycle was struck by an SUV in the 500 block of the Mukilteo speedway recently. The SUV was making a U-turn at the time of the accident.
Under Washington law, the families of victims who are killed as a result of someone else’s fault can recover damages under “wrongful death” statutes. These statutes ensure proper compensation for the families of victims of horrible accidents. However, these statutes also contain many procedural hurdles. Experienced attorneys can guide families through these requirements during such a difficult time.
