Maryland Wrongful Death Accident Lawyer

Experienced wrongful death accident lawyer obtains all available insurance coverage after a family member is killed by a commercial truck driver.

Maryland wrongful death laws are the last thing that you want to worry about after a tragic crash has taken the life of a loved one. Maryland has caps or limits on the amount that a jury is permitted to compensate someone for non-economic damages after a person’s life has wrongfully been taken. There are no limits on the amount that a jury may order an insurance company to pay for economic losses in a wrongful death claim.

Family Recovers Commercial Insurance Policy after Accident

In 2010, wrongful death lawyer, George Patterson, recovered all available insurance from a commercial truck policy for the wrongful death of a Lothian woman in Anne Arundel County from a car accident with a commercial vehicle. George Patterson’s client was stopped in her car waiting to turn left when a heavy duty tow truck struck her from behind in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The heavy duty tow truck destroyed the driver’s car and she died at the scene. She left behind a husband, her parents an adult son in college and teenage daughter in high school. The wrongful death lawyers have handled dozens of wrongful death claims caused by auto accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and pedestrian accidents.

Most medical literature indicates that the grieving process lasts anywhere from several weeks to years. After the grieving process comes to an end the loss still remains.

George is an excellent lawyer. He is very knowledgeable concerning the cases he has worked for me and I recommend him to everyone who is looking for an attorney. He is very dedicated to your cause and he has always been very efficient.
