Losing a member of your family because of another person’s or entity’s negligence can take an emotional and financial toll. While nothing can undo the emotional damage your family is experiencing, the wrongful death lawyer at the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow is committed to helping families like yours pursue the at-fault party and recover financial damages.
Our Bel Air wrongful death lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation that proves the cause of your loved one’s passing and identifies the at-fault party or parties. We will build a strong case for your family by collecting evidence and documents and by navigating the negotiation process for you. We never stop fighting for the compensation your family needs to start putting your lives back together.
Damages Our Law Firm Can Recover for Your Family
No financial value can make up for the loss of a beloved family member. Your loved one’s absence, though, can take a financial toll on your family, and we will help you build a case to recover those damages.
Our wrongful death attorney will fight for your loved one’s:
- Accident-related medical bills
- Reasonable funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of the decedent’s financial contributions
- Loss of parental support and companionship
- Mental and emotional pain and suffering
This list is not exhaustive, and your family could be entitled to damages that are not listed here. This can include punitive damages. While not available in every case, punitive damages can be awarded when the negligent party’s actions are deemed egregious.
Our legal team will ensure your recoverable losses are accurately assessed prior to the beginning of the negotiation process.
Our Firm Starts Building Your Case Right Away
When we review your case and agree to represent you, one of the facts we will ascertain is the date of your loved one’s passing. We use this information to ensure compliance with the state’s filing deadline.
In general, the wrongful death statute of limitations in Maryland is three years, according to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904. The statute of limitations can change based on several factors of your case, which can make it difficult to ensure compliance on your own.
When our legal team handles your case, we will ensure the filing deadline is met and remove the risk of having your case dismissed.
