Wrongful Death

Dedicated Wrongful Death Lawyer Serves Maryland

Getting grieving families justice for their loss

Law Office of William M. Burgess, P.A. strongly believes negligent parties must be held responsible if they cause the death of another. I am a zealous advocate dedicated to ensuring you receive the maximum compensation possible for your loss — not only to help your family move forward, but also to punish negligent individuals and companies for their actions.

Pursuing damages

Prompt action is critical to obtaining damages after the death of a family member. Under Maryland law, you have a limited period of time to file a wrongful death suit. I am well-versed in the courtroom tactics the opposition uses in such trials to attempt to limit their liability, and I counter their arguments with carefully planned responses designed to protect your rights. I work hard to ensure you receive compensation for:

  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance

I can also help you recover damages for pain and suffering if your family member did not file a personal injury lawsuit prior to their passing.

Have a wealth of knowledge on your side

I have an in-depth understanding of how to construct wrongful death lawsuits in Maryland courts. I frequently work with private investigators and experts to establish liability, obtain testimonials from witnesses, collect and preserve evidence, and perform a myriad of other tasks to build a case on your behalf.

I have tried wrongful death lawsuits related to:

  • Auto accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Defective products
  • Lack of proper security
  • Mesothelioma
  • Medical malpractice
  • Birth injuries
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Slips and falls
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Workplace accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Assault
  • Murder
  • Aviation accidents

While I settle suits prior to going to court if doing so is likely to produce a favorable result, I do not hesitate to litigate cases when necessary.
