What is a Wrongful Death Claim?

In Maryland, a wrongful death lawsuit provides an opportunity for the family of the deceased or another party filing a claim, such as the estate of the deceased, to recover monetary losses associated with the death of their loved one. To be eligible for compensation, the death of a spouse, parent, or child must have been caused by an act of negligence. Maryland's Wrongful Death statute defines negligence as a failure to use reasonable care that results in harm or injury to another person. At Metzger Wickersham, our experienced Maryland wrongful death attorneys can assist you in understanding the legal statutes surrounding your case and help you pursue maximum compensation for your losses.

What are the Most Common Types of Wrongful Death Claims?

Wrongful death claims can be caused by a variety of situations, but some are more common than others. At Metzger Wickersham, our experienced wrongful death attorneys have handled cases involving a range of circumstances. Auto accidents, including those involving drunk drivers, are common causes of wrongful death. When accidents happen in the workplace, professional negligence can also play a role in wrongful death lawsuits. Additionally, a fall from a defective product, such as a ladder, that results in death may also be grounds for a lawsuit.

The most common types of wrongful death claims include the following:

  • Auto accidents, including those involving drunk drivers
  • Workplace accidents and professional negligence
  • Medical malpractice
  • Defective products, such as dangerous drugs and medical devices
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Truck accidents

Regardless of the cause of the wrongful death, it's essential to work with experienced attorneys who can help you get the compensation and justice you deserve. Our attorneys at Metzger Wickersham are dedicated to advocating for your rights and obtaining maximum results for you and your family. While financial compensation cannot bring back a loved one, it can cover unexpected out-of-pocket expenses such as medical bills, funeral and burial costs, and loss of income and benefits.
