We understand that the death of a loved one is never easy. It can be especially difficult when your loss results in unexpected medical expenses and other financial costs when you're least prepared to address them. If your loved one's untimely death was caused by the negligence or deliberate act of another individual or entity, you need to consult with our personal injury attorney in Rockville, MD.

Our team of wrongful death lawyers handles cases involving the loss of life, regardless of the intent of the party for the death. If your loved one has died as a result of someone else's actions, our lawyer will guide you through the process of understanding what happened, who is responsible, and whether anyone should be charged with a crime. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your wrongful death claim we'll strive to determine your eligibility for receiving compensation following the loss of your loved one.

Understanding State Laws Regarding Wrongful Death Claims

Here in Maryland, you have a three-year statute of limitations when it comes to filing a wrongful death claim. The staff of our law firm is prepared to assist you in every possible way. Rely on us to fight for your right to receive the fairest possible outcome. Our state's rules regarding the filing of a wrongful death claim are extremely specific, which depends on whether you're a primary or secondary beneficiary of the deceased.

If you're a primary beneficiary, you will likely file a claim seeking damages for your losses in connection to your loved one's passing. When you're unsure of the proper approach to filing a claim for wrongful death, reach out to our staff to discuss your case in consultation with our law firm.

Holding Responsible Parties Accountable for their Actions

While we know how hard it is to lose a loved one, we also know that making a claim in a timely manner is essential for recovering any compensation. Punishing the responsible party may also be an option, so we'll strive to determine the possibility of recovering compensation in the form of punitive damages. We know that the punishment of the person or entity responsible for your loss won't bring your loved one back, but it can help to know that justice has been served. Get in touch with our law firm when you'd like to speak with us, and we'll help you arrange an appointment with someone on our staff.
