Immediate family members of the deceased victim are eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In Maryland, the spouses, parents, or children of a loved one may bring a suit. In certain cases, secondary beneficiaries may bring a claim if there are no other immediate family members and the beneficiary is financially dependent upon the decedent.


In Maryland, the statute of limitations starts at the time of death and runs for three years. If you believe you have a wrongful death claim, it must be filed within three years of your loved one’s death.


Obviously, there is no amount of money that can make up for the loss of a wrong one. Compensatory damages in a wrongful death case can relieve some of the burden of funeral, burial and other expenses. In Maryland, claimants are entitled to receive economic compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of support
  • Loss of care and protection
  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of potential financial contributions and inheritance
