A person having a claim against the decedent may not maintain an action on the claim
unless a personal representative has been appointed and the claimant has presented
the claim as set forth in this chapter. However, this chapter does not affect the notice under RCW 82.32.240 or the ability to maintain an action against a notice agent under chapter 11.42 RCW.
