Wrongful death is a civil action against another person who can be held responsible for the death of another. In Maryland, a wrongful death claim can be brought due to survival actions, or actions that can be brought on behalf of the estate, or wrongful death actions, which are actions that are brought on behalf of the survivors of the estate. There are many causes for wrongful death suits:
- Medical malpractice
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Assault and battery
- Nursing home abuse
- Premises liability
When a wrongful death occurs, the responsible party can be held liable and ordered to pay damages for your loss. Though being compensated cannot bring your loved one back, it can help lessen your burdens and expenses due to medical bills and funeral costs. In Maryland, you must file a wrongful death action within a certain amount of time and because of this, a Maryland wrongful death attorney can be of great assistance.
