Maine’s Definition of Wrongful Death

A wrongful death claim arises when a person’s death is caused by the negligence, wrongful act, or breach of duty of another. This legal action is similar to personal injury claims; however, the damages are suffered by the deceased’s survivors or estate. Our attorneys are skilled in interpreting and applying these legal definitions to advocate effectively for the rights of grieving families in greater Bangor.

There Is a Deadline To Take Action

It is critical for families to be aware that wrongful death claims in Maine must be filed within 3 years from the date of death. This statute of limitations is strict, and missing this deadline can prevent you from ever seeking compensation. Lowry & Associates encourages anyone who believes they might have a wrongful death claim to consult with our attorneys as soon as possible to protect their rights.

Damages a Wrongful Death Settlement Will Address

A wrongful death settlement can provide financial support to cover the following:

  • Medical expenses incurred prior to the deceased’s passing
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of income and benefits that the deceased would have earned if not for their untimely death
  • Pain and suffering endured by the deceased 
  • Loss of companionship, consortium, care, and comfort for the surviving family members

Our attorneys work tirelessly to ensure that every aspect of your loss is recognized and compensated.

Are You Eligible To File a Claim?

In Maine, the right to file a wrongful death claim is typically reserved for the personal representative of the deceased’s estate. A personal representative is someone appointed by the court to manage the affairs of the deceased’s estate, such as handling legal claims and distributing assets. 

However, the damages recovered are for the benefit of the spouse, children, or parents of the deceased. If no such relatives exist, damages may then benefit the deceased’s heirs. Understanding who is eligible to file can be complex, and our team of wrongful death lawyers in the Bangor area is here to provide clarity and guidance.
