Maryland Wrongful Death Lawyer
Nothing can make up for the loss of a loved one, but the simple fact is that the loss of an immediate family member most often causes a significant financial disruption to the family left behind. In Maryland, laws exist to allow surviving family members to recover much-needed compensation from the party responsible for causing a wrongful death through their negligence. The law firm of Steinhardt, Siskind & Associates, LLC maintains offices in Glen Burnie and throughout the state to help the families of wrongful death victims obtain compensation for the financial costs inflicted on them, and to hold wrongdoers accountable when their misconduct led to the death of an innocent person.
Our Maryland wrongful death lawyers help people who have lost a loved one due to negligence in:
- Auto Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Construction Accidents
- Medical Negligence and Malpractice
Understanding Maryland Wrongful Death Law
In Maryland, a civil action for wrongful death may be brought for the benefit of a surviving spouse, parent or child. If there is no surviving spouse, parent or child, a lawsuit may still be brought on behalf of any relative who was substantially dependent on the deceased for support. In a personal injury lawsuit, the injured plaintiff sues to recover compensation for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering experienced by the injury victim. In a wrongful death lawsuit, damages are recoverable for the harm imposed on the surviving family members. These damages may include compensation for harm such as:
- Final Medical Expenses
- Funeral and Burial Costs
- Loss of Companionship
- Loss of Marital or Parental Care
- Emotional Pain and Suffering
- Mental Anguish
Maryland’s wrongful death statute is complicated and highly technical, and in many ways it is more difficult to bring a successful wrongful death case than a personal injury matter where the victim is available to testify about the facts surrounding the accident. Trust the caring, dedicated Maryland accident lawyers at Steinhardt, Siskind & Associates, LLC to pursue your matter skillfully and compassionately. Our attorneys have decades of experience handling matters such as these, and we work hard to achieve a positive outcome in your case.
