Maryland High Court Decides Case On Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Posted by Frank Spector | Oct 31, 2013 | 0 Comments

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.
