Maryland Wrongful Death Lawyer

The death of a loved one is difficult, but never more so than when a loved one's death is caused by another.  Maryland law allows you three years to file a claim for wrongful death against a person, group of people, company or entity you believe is responsible for the death.  Wrongful death is defined as a death caused by the negligence or misconduct of another. If you feel that your loved one's death occurred because of the negligence of another you should contact Maryland wrongful death attorney Walter E. Laake, Jr., who is experienced in handling all types of wrongful death cases and understands Maryland law in regards to these cases.

Some of the most common causes of wrongful death are fatalities resulting from a criminal act, exposure to hazardous substances or toxic chemicals, worksite accidents, medical malpractice, and motor vehicle accidents.  An accident or injury resulting in death when a person is supervised, such as an incarcerated or institutionalized individual, or when an illness is not properly treated that results in death, are other examples of cases in which you will need a Maryland wrongful death lawyer with the experience and skills to obtain compensation for you.

Damages recoverable in a wrongful death case include - funeral expenses, loss of support, and in some jurisdictions damages can even cover an estimated inheritance that would have been available years from now had negligence or misconduct not resulted in a loved one's death.  Past income, likely future income, and the health and age of the deceased are all factors a Maryland wrongful death lawyer will use to determine the family’s damages.
