Who can sue for wrongful death in Washington?
The personal representative of the estate must bring the lawsuit for wrongful death, but he or she acts for the benefit of the statutory beneficiaries. These beneficiaries are family members—not necessarily those named in the person’s will, however. The beneficiaries are the person’s spouse or registered domestic partner, their child, or their children, including step children. If there is no living heir in these categories, the lawsuit can be brought for the benefit of the person’s parents or siblings
