Landover Wrongful Death Lawyer | Fighting for Families Across Maryland

If your loved one recently lost his or her life at the hands of a negligent party, our Landover wrongful death lawyer is here to fight for the justice you and your family deserve.

Qualifying for a Wrongful Death Claim in Maryland

Anyone who wishes to bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of their loved one will have to meet certain specific criteria, as not everyone affected by the loss is allowed to file a wrongful death lawsuit. To file a wrongful death claim in Maryland, you must either be the spouse, child, or parent of the accident victim. That being said, if none of these parties exist, those who are related by blood or marriage to the victim may bring a wrongful death claim–as long as they can prove that they were significantly dependent on the victim.

Recovering Compensation

To win a wrongful death claim, you will have to prove that your loved one lost his or her life as a direct result of another party’s negligence. This is not always easy, which is why you need an experienced Maryland wrongful death lawyer on your side who can work to uncover all of the evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof. As long as you can prove this, you should recover compensation for two types of damages: economic damages and non-economic damages.

Economic damages can include the cost of funeral expenses, the cost of the medical care your loved one received before passing away, lost wages as a result of your loved one’s passing, and more. On the other hand, wrongful death is an extremely emotionally taxing experience for all of the victim’s survivors, which is why you may also pursue compensation for any non-economic damages you’ve incurred. Some examples of non-economic damages include pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of guidance provided by the loved one, emotional distress, and more.

Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations for wrongful death claims in Maryland is typically three years, which means that you cannot wait any longer than three years to file your claim. We understand that you’d prefer to simply focus on the loss of your loved one at this time, however, the sooner you file your claim, the sooner we can hold the negligent party accountable on your behalf. We can assist you and your family today.
