Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

If your family member’s death was caused by another person’s negligence, consider setting up an appointment with a wrongful death lawyer Baltimore MD counts on. Your deceased family member deserves justice for what happened. An experienced lawyer may help you receive compensation for your loved one’s death.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

The representative of the deceased victim’s estate is normally the person who has to file a wrongful death claim. He or she may file the claim on behalf of survivors who were close with the victim, such as parents, children, brothers and sisters. It’s more difficult for distant relatives, like uncles, aunts, and cousins, to collect wrongful death damages.

What Are the Types of Wrongful Death Damages?

A wrongful death lawyer Baltimore MD trusts may help family members collect several types of damages for the victim’s wrongful death, including:

  • Funeral Costs
  • Medical Costs
  • Loss of Deceased Family Member’s Income
  • Deceased Person’s Pain and Suffering
  • Loss of Care and Guidance from Deceased Person

How Do You Prove Fault in a Wrongful Death Claim?

In order to receive compensation for a family member’s death, a wrongful death lawyer Baltimore MD respects must prove that the defendant owed the victim a duty of care and failed to provide it. Due care refers to the responsibility of keeping another person safe from harm.

For example, if a person was texting while driving, and hit and killed another driver, he or she failed to keep the victim safe. In this instance, a wrongful death lawyer in Baltimore MD has to provide evidence that the defendant breached the duty of care. If a wrongful death lawyer shows the court that the time the text messages were sent match the time the accident took place, it may prove negligence.

How Long Do You Have to File a Claim?

While every state has certain time limits, in general, a family member has two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit. When the statute of limitations period ends, a person may forego the right to sue the defendant for damages.

That’s why it may be important for family members to consult with a qualified Baltimore MD wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible and get the process started. After a lawyer reviews all the evidence in the case, he or she may file the claim.

Why Should You Hire a Wrongful Death Lawyer?

Although it’s possible for family members to file wrongful death lawsuits by themselves, they may have more success if they work with an experienced wrongful death lawyer Baltimore MD relies on. A reputable lawyer knows the ins and outs of wrongful death claims and may help family members get the compensation they deserve for their loved one’s death.

An experienced wrongful death lawyer may know the approximate worth of a family’s wrongful death claim, and may help ensure that the insurance company doesn’t give them a low offer.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
