Personal injury law allows the survivors of someone killed by another person’s negligent acts to file a wrongful death lawsuit seeking compensation for the loss of his or her loved one. The skilled wrongful death attorneys of DuBoff & Associates, Chartered can help.
In the state of Maryland, wrongful death is defined as death that results from an accidental injury caused by the negligent act of a legally liable person or entity. State laws in Maryland and the laws of Washington, D.C. allow the heirs of a person killed through an act of negligence to receive compensation from the negligent party.
Compensation need not necessarily be for financial losses. Wrongful death suits can yield damages for lost wages, medical bills and funeral costs, and also for loss of companionship and loss of consortium.
There are two laws in Maryland that detail how wrongful death claims and cases proceed:
Complicating matters further, Maryland has a “pure” contributory negligence law on its books. Very few states still do. This law states that if the victim of a personal injury claim can be found to be even one percent responsible for the accident in question, the entire claim can be dismissed. This is one of the many reasons that if you suspect you might have a valid personal injury or wrongful death claim, you should retain legal counsel as soon as possible.
