Wrongful Death Claims in Maryland
When a person's death is caused by someone else's negligence or misconduct, the Personal Representative of his estate has the obligation to seek compensation for the decedent's pain and suffering, and medical and other related expenses. In causing death, the wrongdoer has also victimized the decedent's surviving family members, such as a spouse, children, or parents. Maryland law permits the decedent's survivors to personally pursue their own Wrongful Death Action against the wrongdoer to obtain compensation for their own personal losses resulting from the decedent's death.
Wrongful Death Claims in Nursing Home Cases
The adult children of a parent who has tragically died as a result of negligent treatment rendered by a nursing home, assisted living facility, or other health care provider often want to know whether they have any right to compensation for their own personal grief over the loss of their loved one. THEY DO, and at the law office of Robert D. Ahlstrom, P.A., the rights of adult children to seek Wrongful Death compensation, even when their parent was very elderly, is aggressively pursued.
