Don’t Worry About Upfront Attorney’s Fees When You Hire Barron & Brown

Between funeral arrangement costs and your late loved one’s final medical bills, you could be struggling to make ends meet. Hiring a lawyer to start a case may seem next to impossible. However, at Brown & Barron, we consider your financial state, and we will serve you for a contingency fee.

  • Upfront costs
  • Out-of-pocket payments
  • Hourly rates
  • Retainers

Instead, we will take a portion of the compensation we secure for you as our payment. Your attorney will only get paid if you do. That way, you eliminate your financial risk when you partner with our wrongful death lawyers.

What Can You Expect From a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

When a family member dies due to another person’s negligence, it is only natural to look for justice or compensation.

Depending on the charges admitted by a judge, you may obtain: 

  • Economic damages: This category includes funeral and burial costs, final medical care bills, and lost income, among others. 
  • Non-economic damages: This classification includes the pain and suffering of the victim and the surviving family members’ grief, loss of companionship, consortium, and society.
  • Punitive damages: These damages are rare, as you have to prove that the other party was actually malicious when they caused the incident that led to your loved one’s death.

You could be entitled to recover other damages that we haven’t listed here.

How Long Can You Wait to Submit a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

You have a certain amount of years to submit your lawsuit and obtain proper compensation.

According to Md. Code Ann., Cts. & Jud. Proc. § 3-904, you generally have three years to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If you don’t comply with this deadline, the court may refuse to hear your case and throw it out of court. As a result, you may have few or no options to recover compensation.

Getting started on your case early isn’t just important for meeting deadlines but also for gathering evidence. Video footage of the event may be destroyed, and witnesses’ memories fade. Obtaining evidence as soon as possible helps ensure your claims are accurate.
