Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

Maryland’s Wrongful Death allows two classes of people to file a wrongful death claim, primary beneficiaries, and secondary beneficiaries. Primary beneficiaries are parents, spouse, and children of the deceased. If they elect to bring a claim any compensation recovered would be awarded to the primary beneficiaries only.

Secondary beneficiaries are siblings, nieces or nephews, cousins, or other relatives. In cases where there are no surviving primary beneficiaries or they cannot bring a claim to court, a secondary beneficiary may file.

The personal representative can also bring a survival action on behalf of the estate of the decedent for the decedent’s own causally related conscious pain and suffering before death and any economic damages due to the estate such as funeral expenses and medical bills causally related to the negligence that resulted in the wrongful death
