Wrongful Death

Prince Frederick Wrongful Death Attorney

Helping Grieving Families Find Closure & Compensation

There is no greater loss than that of a loved one, especially when that loss came unexpectedly because of another’s negligence. If you have been bereaved by negligence, our team at Alpert Schreyer, LLC sends our deepest condolences. More than that, we want to help you find closure and hold the negligent party accountable.

Under Maryland law, those bereaved by negligence have a right to pursue compensation from the at-fault party. We know that no amount of money is enough to make up for your loss. The goal of a civil lawsuit is to make sure the party responsible answers for its actions, however. That includes financially by compensating you for your damages, such as funeral and burial expenses, pain and suffering, the loss of love and companionship, etc.

Our Prince Frederick wrongful death lawyers have helped countless bereaved families in Maryland and Washington, DC find justice. We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients, while taking care to preserve the memory of those lost. Put our more than 30 years of experience on your side. We’ll apply it to bolster your case. Let us take care of the legalities so that you can focus on grieving your loved one.

We Take On All Types of Wrongful Death Cases

Alpert Schreyer helps clients in a range of civil cases, such as wrongful death cases involving:

This is just a brief overview of the wrongful death cases we take on. If your loved one suffered an untimely death due to no fault of their own, we recommend contacting our firm. The negligent party did not have to be there to be considered at fault—a common example of this is when a product defect or property hazard results in death.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Case?

Although many people may be devastated after a fatal accident, state law grants the right to take legal action only to those directly affected. This is because some people are closer and/or more dependent on that person, such as a surviving spouse or child.

Maryland’s wrongful death laws mandate the following:

  • The decedent’s surviving spouse, child, and parent(s) are prioritized as primary beneficiaries. This means they have “first priority” when it comes to filing a wrongful death claim.
  • If all primary beneficiaries are no longer alive upon the victim’s death, the next group of people, secondary beneficiaries, may pursue compensation. Generally, others who were “substantially dependent” on the decedent AND related to them by blood or marriage fall into this category.

Unfortunately, state law does not allow relatives who were not dependent on the decedent to file a claim. Only primary and secondary beneficiaries are eligible to do so.
