Fatal Accident Wrongful Death Cases
Maryland Wrongful Death Accident Attorneys Help Families Recover from Tragedy
When a loved one dies as the result of someone's negligence, there is little that the law can do to make you whole again. Judges and juries cannot erase the pain, anguish and irreparable loss we face in the wake of sudden, fatal accidents. Money is a poor replacement for the loss of human life and will never fully compensate for the death of a close family member.
And, while it is difficult to put a price on human life, judges and juries attempt to do that every day in awarding compensatory damages for both economic and non-economic losses sustained in the most tragic of fatalities.
To secure your family's future, your lawyer will seek to recover money to compensate for the loss of a loved one. Often combining two distinct causes of action into one lawsuit, the deceased's estate and survivors typically file what are called "wrongful death" actions and "survival" actions.
