A wrongful death lawsuit can start to process to you getting back what you are entitled. These types of cases are classified as an accidental death caused by another party.
When carelessness is involved, accidents may happen. However, fatal accidents are serious. Any accident could’ve been prevented if the other party took more precautions. Most of the time, wrongful death lawsuits happen because of:
Hiring a lawyer may seem intimidating but it will take all the work off your plate. A lawyer will start with what’s called the ‘burden of proof’ to prove that you have a wrongful death claim.
Every case is evaluated before reaching a verdict. Wrongful death claims reach a point to say that an accident caused the death and could’ve been prevented. Burden of proof is what’s used as evidence, which shows that the negligent party had a duty to care, breached that duty and because of this, a fatal accident occurred. The careless party, regardless of if it was an accident, had a responsibility to care for your loved one but failed. This would be enough evidence. Proof is just one piece but in the end, who can file this kind out lawsuit?
Filing for this type of lawsuit may seem obvious but qualified parties can involve many different people. In Maryland, any surviving beneficiaries may file on behalf of their loved one. Primary beneficiaries like a surviving spouse, parent or child, are first to be eligible. Otherwise, secondary beneficiaries for example siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, among others may file if there is no surviving primary beneficiaries. Most often primary beneficiaries file wrongful death lawsuits to obtain compensation covering loss of financial support, funeral costs and emotional damages. Secondary beneficiaries often file for the sake of recovering the loss of financial support in the estate.
How much compensation will depend on the beneficiary and how much they were financially damaged. No matter the amount, our team will make sure you have the maximum you are entitled to.
You can still receive justice. Our lawyers want to help those recover even when all seems hopeless. Fatal accidents happen suddenly but we will be ready to help you no matter the time.
