      Fighting for the Rights of Waldorf Families Touched by Wrongful Death

      The death of a loved one is never easy to deal with, particularly when their death was caused by the negligent actions of someone else. In addition to the sorrow of losing your loved one, there is also the anger at the fact that it could have been prevented and the dread of knowing that another person may be fatally injured by the same party.

      Although it cannot rewind time and bring your loved one back, the law does offer the option for individuals in this situation to file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation and prevent others from being harmed in the same way. Alpert Schreyer, LLC understands the emotional and mental toll these claims can take on people, which is why if you work with us, our attorney team will handle the brunt of the legal work with efficiency and skill so you can focus on coping with the grief of your tragic loss.

      Eligible Wrongful Death Claimants in Waldorf

      In Waldorf and throughout Maryland, wrongful death actions can be filed by primary beneficiaries — such as surviving spouses, children, or even parents — if they wish to be compensated for their own personal losses related to the death. This group may also file a survival action to recover losses on behalf of the estate; any compensation awarded at the conclusion of a survival action is paid to the estate directly.

      If no primary beneficiary is alive, a secondary beneficiary — a surviving niece/nephew, sibling, or other relative related by blood or through marriage — may file a survival action. Secondary beneficiaries cannot file a wrongful death action.

      Why Pursue a Wrongful Death Case?

      When wrongful death cases are resolved successfully, the claimant will receive economic and/or non-economic damages as compensation. Economic damages are financial losses that have incurred from the wrongful death, such as medical bills, funeral expenses, burial costs, and the loss of the decedent’s financial support, and more. Non-economic damages are intangible damages that have arisen from your loss, including pain and suffering, mental anguish, and the loss of love, society, companionship, consortium, and guidance, among others.

      Punitive damages — damages which the defense must pay as a penalty — are paid in cases in which the negligence was gross, deliberate, and malicious. These damages are rarely awarded, as there must be undeniably clear evidence that this type of negligence was committed.

      Winning a Wrongful Death Claim

      To win, you will have to prove that a form of negligence was committed by the defense and that this negligence was in direct violation of a standard or duty of care that they owed to the decedent. For instance, if the death resulted from a car crash, the standard of care would be that which the at-fault driver owed others on the road (including the decedent) per state road laws. By committing negligence in, say, the form of reckless driving, they violated that standard and could be held legally responsible for any ensuing damages.

      Please note: No lawyer or firm can guarantee that you will win your claim, but you can give yourself a good chance of achieving a favorable verdict or settlement by consulting a legal professional as soon as possible. In a free case evaluation, Alpert Schreyer, LLC can discuss your case’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as how we can help you substantiate your claim and build on its strengths.

      The attorney’s and paralegals are incredible. They are truly committed to understanding your case and serving you. However, I’ve personally worked with Mr. Berman and Mrs. Bowman through my entire process! I am so grateful for their passion, dedication, and professionalism. I haven’t worked with many attorney’s in the past, but I’m glad you all were recommended to me. You all are truly the best. Thank you so much!
