Wrongful Death

We strive to obtain justice for grieving families.

At Thorley Defense Law, we strongly believe that negligent parties must be held responsible if they cause the death of another. Rebecca Thorley is a zealous advocate dedicated to ensuring you receive the maximum compensation for your loss -- not only to help your family move forward, but also to punish negligent individuals and companies for their actions.

Pursuing damages.

Prompt action is critical to obtaining damages after the death of a family member. Under Washington law, you have a limited period of time to file a wrongful death suit. Rebecca Thorley is well-versed in the courtroom tactics the opposition uses in such trials to attempt to limit their liability, and she counters their arguments with carefully planned responses designed to protect your rights. She works hard to ensure you receive compensation for:

  • Loss of love, affection and companionship

  • Medical costs

  • Funeral expenses

  • Mental anguish

  • Loss of future earnings

  • Loss of protection and guidance

  • Benefits lost due to the victim's death, including medical insurance

We can also help you recover damages for pain and suffering if your family member did not file a personal injury lawsuit prior to their passing.

Have a wealth of knowledge on your side.

Rebecca Thorley has an in-depth understanding of how to construct wrongful death lawsuits in Washington courts. She frequently works with private investigators and experts to establish liability, obtain testimonials from witnesses, collect and preserve evidence, and perform a myriad of other tasks to build a case on your behalf. Thorley has tried wrongful death lawsuits related to:

  • Auto accidents

  • Truck accidents

  • Defective products

  • Lack of proper security

  • Mesothelioma

  • Medical malpractice

  • Birth injuries

  • Nursing home abuse and neglect

  • Slips and falls

  • Traumatic brain injuries

  • Workplace accidents

  • Motorcycle accidents

  • Assault

  • Murder

  • Aviation accidents

While Thorley settle suits prior to going to court if doing so is likely to produce a favorable result, she does not hesitate to litigate cases when necessary.
