Maryland's Wrongful Death Statute

There are two categories to a wrongful death claim: survival actions and wrongful death actions. These define compensation for a family's loses and financial restitution for surviving family members. These damages can be filed by primary or secondary beneficiaries within three years of a loved one's death.

You may be entitled to compensation for any of the following:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Medical bills
  • Property damage
  • Loss of support
  • Loss of wages from time off work to grieve
  • Pain and suffering

Though the state limits the damages that can be received for non-economic issues, such as emotional pain and suffering or loss of companionship, you and your family may still be entitled to money to help compensate you for emotional turmoil.
