Baltimore Wrongful Death Lawyer
The loss of a loved one in a sudden or unexpected accident is a tragic shock. The pain of a family member’s death is never easy to deal with, but when the death comes unexpectedly, the family is likely ill-equipped to deal with the numerous costs and expenses involved.

The Baltimore wrongful death lawyers at Iamele & Iamele, LLP are intimately familiar with these laws and will take on the burden of pursuing a wrongful death claim on your behalf while you are dealing with this terrible loss.

Facts about Wrongful Death Claims in Maryland
In Maryland, a wrongful death claim can be brought for the benefit of the surviving spouse or a surviving parent or child. If there is no surviving spouse, parent or child, a claim can be brought on behalf of any relative who was substantially dependent on the deceased for support.
The compensation awarded in a wrongful death claim reflects the costs and losses inflicted on the surviving family members left behind. For example, it is possible to recover the following:
- Funeral and Burial costs
- Medical Expenses
- Emotional Pain and Suffering
- Mental Anguish
- Loss of Companionship
- Loss of Marital or Parental Care
How Our Experienced Baltimore Wrongful Death Lawyers can Help
One of the difficulties in many wrongful death cases is that the person who was killed may not have been able to offer any description of the accident before passing away, so that the defendant may be the only eyewitness to the incident. This makes it easier for defendants and their insurers to claim that the deceased was somehow at fault in causing or contributing to the accident, which under Maryland law can cause the dismissal of a wrongful death claim. At Iamele & Iamele, LLP, our experienced litigators work hard to thoroughly investigate the accident and build a strong case that convincingly demonstrates the defendant’s own negligence and responsibility for causing the death. We understand the family’s need for financial help as well as closure, and we strive to achieve both justice and peace through our efforts.
