La Plata Wrongful Death Attorneys

Mudd, Mudd & Fitzgerald, P.A. can help bring justice for the loss of your loved one

It is tragic to lose a loved one, and even more devastating when the death is due to the negligent or wrongful actions of another person. Mudd, Mudd & Fitzgerald, P.A. offers compassionate legal counsel to grieving families. We understand that your loved one’s death was unexpected, and that you and your family may feel overwhelmed. Our attorneys can help you bring justice and closure to the tragedy through a wrongful death lawsuit.

When you and your family are grieving, planning a funeral and dealing with the aftermath of a loss, filing a lawsuit is probably the last thing on your mind. Pursuing a wrongful death claim is often crucial to the financial survival of the decedent’s family, however, and acting quickly is essential. The three-year statute of limitations begins to run the day of your loved one’s death. Gathering evidence from your loved one’s death is essential to your case. The longer you wait, the more likely evidence is to disappear. Our La Plata wrongful death lawyers have more than a century of excellence to help you heal and move forward with your life.

A wrongful death occurs when someone dies as the result of another person’s negligent or wrongful actions. Medical expenses (prior to the death), funeral expenses, and loss of financial support may be recovered through damages. Let our Maryland accident and personal injury attorneys use their experience and legal skills to help you navigate the courts. Our experienced litigators come prepared and ready to fight for your rights.
