Maryland Wrongful Death Lawyer
When an accident results in injury fatality, you need the experienced and compassionate assistance that my firm can offer. As an Maryland personal injury lawyer, I realize that no compensation will ever be enough to mend the pain you are currently experiencing. What compensation can do, however, is bring justice to the situation and help you avoid debt from the hospital and funeral expenses. Whether you lost a loved one in an auto accident, truck accident, or another circumstance, I can handle your case with skill and personal care for you and your family.
Pursuing Compensation in a Wrongful Death Case
As a surviving relative, you can collect compensation for lost wages, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and any medical bills prior to your loved one’s tragic death. For non-economic damages in a Maryland survival action, the maximum recovery is $1.36 million because of the two separate claims associated with wrongful death. Maximum recovery in a Maryland survival action for personal injury is $680,000, and for the wrongful death action, the maximum recovery is also $680,000. In Maryland, there is no maximum recovery limit for economic damages. These limits are adjusted on an annual basis. Recovering compensation for lost wages and medical expenses depends entirely on the family’s unique circumstances.
In a wrongful death case in Maryland, damages are measured by the level of harm that has occurred to the decedent’s loved ones. You may have lost a substantial portion of income if the decedent was the primary financial provider in the home. With more than 25 years of experience, I can determine what your case may be worth during a free case evaluation. As you seek to recover non-economic and economic damages for the wrongful death claim you are filing, I can remain at your side throughout the process. The result of your wrongful death claim will have a substantial impact on you and other surviving family members of the decedent, so contact me today for the legal representation your case demands.
