The sudden death of a loved one can cause unimaginable grief, which the victim's family and friends will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Learning to live the rest of your life without a husband, wife, child, or parent can seem like an insurmountable challenge. To make matters worse, when a loved one's death was wrongfully caused by the negligent, reckless, or intentional acts of another, the surviving family members may be left with financial hardships. When a loved one dies because of the acts of another, be it an individual or a company, they ought to be held responsible for that wrong. If your loved one suffered before he or she died, money can be recovered and disbursed to his or her beneficiaries. Maryland's Wrongful Death Statute provides that compensation can be sought for the spouse, children, and maybe even parents of the departed.
If you have lost someone dear to you, and you think that someone is responsible for his or her death, you should consult an attorney right away. At Ortega Law, LLC, we have the experience, dedication, and the necessary compassion to see that justice is done.
