The death of a loved one is a devastating event. When a person dies suddenly due to an accident or another’s negligence, families must deal with coping emotionally while also facing mounting medical bills, funeral expenses and lost wages. In Maryland, wrongful death is defined as death that results from accidental injury due to the negligence of a liable person or entity. If your spouse or loved one has died due to another’s negligence as the result of a traffic accident, workplace incident or medical error, you may be entitled to compensatory damages.
Before you speak with the insurance company or the attorneys representing the potentially liable parties, you need to consult an experienced Maryland wrongful death attorney. If you wait to take action or give a statement without knowing your rights, there’s a chance that you may unknowingly forfeit compensation that you would have been due. Although it may be difficult to seek help after the devastating loss of a loved one, it’s important that you discuss your case with an attorney who can ensure that the accident and circumstances are documented properly.
