Wrongful Death Litigation in Maryland and DC
There are many legal and practical differences between a personal injury claim and a wrongful death claim. Obviously, there's often no comparison in terms of what our clients are going through as between recovering from an injury and mourning the loss of a spouse or child. Meanwhile, the general law of negligence that applies to most personal injury lawsuits can be fairly open-ended in its operation, but damages claims for wrongful death are rather tightly defined and limited by statute.
At Fay Law Group, our attorneys understand the details of wrongful death litigation under the very different laws of Maryland and the District of Columbia. We also understand what grieving families are going through during what's usually a long and difficult period of adjustment.
