Washington State Association for Justice
The proper administration of a probate is one of the most commonly overlooked issues in wrongful death and survivorship claims. Mistakes in the probate can have dire consequences for the parties as well as a plaintiff's attorney. Learn some of the basics of probate administration and many of the pitfalls for counsel.
Wrongful death and survivorship claims often result in a global recovery for multiple plaintiffs. How those funds are apportioned will impact each of the plaintiffs and determine what funds are available to lien holders. Washington State has relatively robust statutes and case law regarding apportionment. However, the process apportionment is ripe with potential conflicts and ethical issues. Knowing this system and what role to take is critical for any attorney taking on wrongful death and survivorship cases.
