Who Can Bring a Wrongful Death Claim in Maryland?
When someone loses a loved one due to another party’s negligence, they often wish to bring a wrongful death claim to bring the responsible party to justice. That being said, not just anyone has the right to bring a wrongful death claim in Maryland. If you are the parent, spouse, or child of the decedent, you may bring a wrongful death claim on their behalf. That being said, if the decedent passes away without parents, a spouse, or a child, then anyone who is related by blood or marriage to the victim and was significantly dependent on them may bring a wrongful death claim.
Our firm understands that there is virtually no other legal matter as emotional as wrongful death claims, which is why you have our work to approach your case with the honesty and compassion you deserve. We know that it takes a lot for you to bring a claim at such a difficult point in your life, and we are prepared to do everything in our power to make it worth it. As long as we can prove that your loved one lost his or her life as a direct result of another party’s negligence, we should recover compensation to help you deal with the economic and non-economic damages you’ve sustained as a result of the wrongful death.
Economic damages deal with the financial cost of the death, including funeral expenses, the medical care your loved one received before passing on, and lost wages. Of course, a wrongful death is also an extreme emotional loss, which is why we can also sue for non-economic damages, including pain and suffering, loss of guidance, loss of companionship, emotional distress, and more.
