When a person is killed by the actions or carelessness of others, the harm often does not end at the death itself. Rather, family members will often be psychologically and financially harmed for years (or even decades) following their loved ones’ death. Oregon and Washington’s wrongful death and survival action laws vary significantly in who may bring cases, what damages may be sought, and within what time periods.
