The service update from the local attorneys responds to recent statistics published by John Hopkins University indicating that medical malpractice accounts for around 250,000 wrongful deaths in the US each year.
While typically filing civil suits against nurses and physicians, Maryland Injury Guys can also help with wrongful death lawsuits against pharmacists, therapists, counselors, and medical technicians. Before filing a claim with the court, the attorneys will draw up an initial demand letter indicating that the victim’s family intends to collect compensation.
If a settlement cannot be reached as such, the law firm can help clients handle the next steps in their case by collating data on financial losses, expert testimonies, and necessary evidence. Its legal team will gather evidence that shows that the person responsible had a duty of care to the victim, that they breached this duty, and that this led to the fatality.
Injury Guys can help clients understand the factors that will be considered by the court when calculating how much compensation they are owed. In Maryland, the maximum compensation that can be awarded in a wrongful death lawsuit involving at least 2 surviving beneficiaries currently stands at around $1.3 million for non-economic damages.
State law mandates that this type of lawsuit must be filed within 3 years of the victim’s death. As such, the attorneys urge anyone whose loved one has recently been affected by medical malpractice, including misdiagnoses, surgical mistakes, or medication dosage errors, to contact the firm.
A spokesperson for the firm said, “Wrongful death lawsuits are a complicated and involved process, which is why many people seek the help of a wrongful death lawyer. If you have lost someone that you care about, understanding how to move forward with a wrongful death lawsuit can be difficult because it is such an emotionally charged matter.”
