Maryland's highest court, the Court of Appeals, decided an issue in a wrongful death case that had been unclear.
The issue deals with the deadline to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In the case. the person died but did not bring a lawsuit within the 3 year time limit under Maryland law for medical malpractice claims. But, the survivors did bring the wrongful death lawsuit within 3 years of their loved one's death.
The Court had to decide once and for all whether the wrongful death suit could go forward.
The Court said yes.
This is a good decision for family members who want to bring a wrongful death lawsuit even if their loved one did not do so within three years of the malpractice.
