An example of a wrongful death case the Yakima, Wash., Mariano Morales Law Firm handled involved a motor vehicle collision. A mother and daughter after grocery shopping were traveling home on a two-lane country road that they had traveled on many times before. Suddenly another car in the oncoming lane swerved across the center line and collided head-on into their vehicle. The daughter tragically watched her mother die at the scene of the accident.
