Know Which Family Members Can Request Compensation
The loss of one of its members will take a toll on every member of their family. Even so, Maryland law only allows specific loved ones to file a wrongful death lawsuit. According to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904, the following family members are eligible to request monetary compensation:
- Legal spouse
- Biological or adopted parent
- Biological or adopted children
Under certain circumstances, other family members not listed above may also qualify for compensation. Our team will help you understand how your relationship to the deceased affects your ability to receive compensation.

Find Out the Potential Value of Your Wrongful Death Case
Identifying the party responsible for your loved one’s wrongful death is only one important factor in your case. Knowing how to calculate your financial damages is another. When you seek compensation for your loss, we help you recover monetary damages for the decedent’s:
- Current and future wages
- Required medical treatments
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Funeral and burial expenses
Our wrongful death attorney serving surviving family members in Bel Air North, MD, can also help you recoup damages for your own losses of companionship, consortium, and society. The Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow will help you accurately calculate your range of recoverable damages prior to negotiating a settlement for you.
We Build Your Bel Air North Wrongful Death Case for Financial Compensation
The case file we build for you will tell the story of your loved one’s loss and identify its cause. To help prove the at-fault party’s responsibility to compensate you, your case file will include:
- Witness statements
- Medical records and bills
- Accident or incident reports
- Relevant photos and videos
- Your loved one’s death certificate
When we compile proof of your right to compensation based on negligence, we build this file for you.
Your Right to Financial Recovery After a Wrongful Death is Limited
The law entitles you to hold the person or entity responsible for your family’s loss financially accountable. The law also imposes a time limit on your right to do so. Per Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904, the wrongful death statute of limitations is generally three years. In addition to ensuring compliance with the statute of limitations, getting our team involved in your case sooner rather than later means we can:
- Talk to witnesses while memories are fresh
- Obtain smartphone and other photos and videos
We will also have time to identify any available residential or commercial surveillance footage. Our team is ready to help you build your case on time and negotiate a settlement that keeps you out of court.
