The loss of a loved one is always hard to deal with. If your family’s loss is the result of another person’s or entity’s negligence, it can make the loss even more difficult. A sudden loss can also leave your family in financial disarray. At the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow, we offer our most heartfelt condolences and our commitment to recover the compensation you need and deserve.
Our Chestertown fatal truck accident lawyer will investigate your accident, assess your potential compensation, and build the strongest possible case for you. Our client-focused law firm will review your case at no cost or obligation. When we mutually agree on representation, our personal injury lawyers stop at nothing to recover fair compensation for your family.
Compensation Our Law Firm Pursues for Fatal Truck Accident Victims
Wrongful death cases can be complicated. Though the entire family will feel the loss of a loved one, Maryland law allows the following survivors to benefit from a wrongful death action:
- The decedent’s parents
- The decedent’s spouse
- The decedent’s children
Other relatives may also qualify if they relied on the decedent for financial support. Review your relationship with the decedent with a team member to learn more about your compensation options. The damages we recover for your family can include:
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of financial support
- Loss of domestic support
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of guidance
- Loss of support
When our Chestertown car accident lawyer represents your family, we make sure no valid expenses or losses are overlooked or omitted when determining the value of your case. We take time to make sure your case is not undervalued or underpaid.
What You Need to Know About Maryland’s Statute of Limitations
According to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904, you generally have three years from the date of your loved one’s demise to file your wrongful death lawsuit. If the statute of limitations expires:
- You will not be permitted to file your lawsuit at all
- It will be dismissed without its merits being heard
- You will have no further legal recourse available
It is never too soon to get our law firm involved in your case. In fact, the sooner you notify us, the more time we have to ensure the filing deadline is met. Our familiarity with state law will ensure the filing deadline is correctly interpreted.
Our fee structure also supports compliance with the statute of limitations. It lets you get started without any upfront or out-of-pocket costs. We only get compensation when we recover it for you, and if your case does not result in a financial award, you owe us no legal fees at all.

Your Fatal Truck Accident Case Can Have Multiple Liable Parties
When our law firm handles your case, we work hard to identify the at-fault party. In truck accident cases, there can be more than one, including:
- The truck driver if their actions directly contributed to the collision
- The driver’s employer if they failed to properly train or instruct the driver
- The truck repair shop if the vehicle was not appropriately roadworthy
- The cargo loader if the truck’s contents were not properly balanced
- The truck’s maker if a design or manufacturing flaw caused the accident
- Parts manufacturers if a component (brakes, windshield, etc.) was faulty
Let our fatal truck accident lawyer identify the at-fault party or parties in Chestertown. At the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow, we will not hesitate to pursue one or more insurers on your behalf. If necessary, we will also take your family’s case to court and keep fighting for financial recovery.
Our Truck Accident Team Will Handle Evidence Collection
Building a robust evidence collection does three important things—it identifies the at-fault party and their negligent actions, proves the accident’s cause, and documents its resulting costs. The case file we build for you will contain the following:
- Medical records
- Proof of income
- Accident report
- Medical referrals
- Injury photos
- Accident scene photos
- Witness statements
We also collect evidence you might find emotionally challenging to obtain on your own such as your loved one’s death certificate. We also obtain the trucker’s licensing and training history and logbooks and the truck’s repair and maintenance records.
