WHAT IS A WRONGFUL DEATH?
When a person is killed because of an intentional, negligent, or wrongful act of another party, the death is referred to as a wrongful death. A wrongful death may arise from a variety of situations and incidents. The party who causes the death does not need to act maliciously or with the intent to take a life. Therefore, an “accident” may qualify as a wrongful death if the person causing the accident was negligent or careless.
Examples of incidents that might give rise to a wrongful death claim in Maryland include:
- Auto Accidents
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Dog Bites
- Bicycle Accidents
- Defective Product Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Medical Malpractice

SEEKING COMPENSATION FOR A WRONGFUL DEATH IN MARYLAND
Family members and dependents frequently suffer a financial hardship after losing a family member. Even though the judicial system cannot undo the terrible wrong that has happened to your family, Maryland’s wrongful death laws allow survivors and dependents to seek compensation for the loss of emotional and financial support they would have received from their deceased relative.
An unexpected loss is painful and can be overwhelming. It may be difficult to think about bringing a wrongful death claim while dealing with feels of despair and anger. However, a wrongful death claim can provide the monetary compensation your family needs. Furthermore, a wrongful death claim can help you find some measure of peace as you hold a negligent and reckless individual legally responsible for his or her actions.
Cases involving a wrongful death are time-sensitive. A claim for wrongful death is subject to the state’s statutes of limitations. If you fail to file your claim before the deadline, you cannot hold the person responsible for your loved one’s death liable for your damages. It may be a difficult decision to pursue a wrongful death action, but it also may be necessary to ensure financial stability for your family.
