Baltimore attorney Joseph H. Ostad handles wrongful death claims on behalf of Maryland and Washington, D.C. families. If you have lost a family member due to the negligence or misconduct of another, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim against those responsible.
If you have questions about a wrongful death claim, I offer a free initial consultation to address your concerns. Since each state has its own wrongful death laws, I can discuss who may file a wrongful death claim as well as the type of damages that are recoverable.
For instance, wrongful death cases can arise from accidents caused by drunk drivers, negligent motorists, medical malpractice, and defective products. If you prevail in a wrongful death suit, you may be entitled to recover compensation for these types of losses associated with the death:
- loss of the deceased's anticipated future earnings,
- lost pension or retirement benefits,
- certain medical bills,
- funeral costs, and
- loss of the deceased's companionship, care or protection.
