Consider Your Legal Options as Soon as Possible
Maryland, like many states, imposes a filing deadline on wrongful death lawsuits. Per Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904, you generally have three years from the date of your loved one’s passing to file a lawsuit.
You must file your case within this period to preserve your right to legal action. If the statutory deadline expires, the courts will refuse to hear your case. This could leave you with few options for seeking financial recovery.
Our team will file your lawsuit on time and manage everything it requires. However, we must learn about your situation first to start advocating for you.

Our Firm Will Handle Your Wrongful Death Case in Hyattsville
In service of your wrongful death case, the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow will:
- Identify those liable for your loved one’s passing: Determining liability is one of the earliest steps in a wrongful death claim. We will use the legal standard of negligence to identify each party who should compensate you.
- Calculate the cost of your damages: We will use supporting evidence to assert how much you deserve in compensation. This information can comprise your loved one’s medical records, employment statements, and other details.
- Gather evidence showing the defendant’s liability: Evidence can include witness testimony, photographs, video footage, and accident reconstruction data. Using the evidence we find, we’ll assert that because another party caused your loved one’s passing, you deserve compensation.
- Explore your settlement options: An insurance settlement may cover all of your losses. If we can negotiate a settlement, then you won’t have to file a lawsuit to seek compensation.
- Go to trial: When a defendant contests your case or refuses to provide fair compensation, we may go to trial. Though a trial is not generally necessary in civil cases, our firm is ready for any course that your case takes.
The Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow will uphold your rights throughout your wrongful death case. A lawyer from our team in Hyattsville will remain in contact with you as they fight for a fair financial recovery.
Reasons To Hire the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow
Attorney Adam M. Smallow has handled many wrongful death claims, and this prior experience allows him to anticipate hurdles that could arise in your case. You may consider partnering with our firm because:
We Will Protect You Against Fault-Based Allegations
In many states, you may get compensation even if you’re partially at fault for an accident. This isn’t the case for residents of Hyattsville. Maryland is one of four states where being even 1% at fault for an accident can prevent you from seeking compensation.
This makes it critical to present the strongest possible wrongful death claim. We anticipate that the other party may try to blame your loved one for their fatal circumstances. Using evidence and facts, we will aim to prove that your loved one was not even 1% at fault for their passing.
Your Recoverable Damages May Be Significant
When you lose a loved one to negligence, you may deserve compensation for:
- The decedent’s lost earnings
- Lost companionship
- Lost parental guidance
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses
- Other damages, such as life support and hospice
Our firm will provide a legal approach befitting your case. We want to recover everything you need to account for your past, present, and future injury-related expenses.
