The injuries from this experience caused me to lose an entire year from my life. The company responsible for this accident cared nothing about my well-being and refused to work with me. Despite the odds, your firm was willing to take my case. The staff that handled my case was absolutely courteous, friendly, and appeared interested in me and my well-being. I would highly recommend your firm. Thank you so much for your kind and friendly service.

Do You Have a Wrongful Death Case?

Wrongful death cases are most often caused by accidents, but they can also be caused by intentional acts such as murder. In the United States, wrongful death is generally a civil case, meaning that there is no criminal prosecution involved.

The most common causes of wrongful death cases are:

●  Motor vehicle accidents (such as car crashes)

●  Medical malpractice

●  Defective drugs or products

●  Construction-related accidents

In the state of Maine, the personal representative of the deceased’s estate is the only one who can file a wrongful death claim. This is usually an attorney appointed by the court to represent the deceased’s estate. However, family members may receive benefits from a wrongful death claim, especially if they were dependants of the deceased.

These benefits can include loss of companionship, loss of consortium (the physical and emotional benefits that come from having someone else in your life), loss of support (financial support provided by your spouse or parent), emotional trauma, and more.

Maine Wrongful Death FAQs

The statute of limitations on wrongful death cases in Maine is TYPICALLY two years from the date of death. However, there are situations in which you have less than two years to file a claim, so it is necessary to contact one of our attorneys as soon as possible.

In Maine, the deceased’s personal representative may choose to handle the claim on their own, but it is always in everyone’s best interest to get legal help from a trusted professional. Lowry & Associates can help ensure all deadlines are met promptly and every document is accounted for. They can also help recover damages you may not have been aware you were entitled to.

Due to the complex, sensitive nature of wrongful death claims, it can take a year or more to settle. Our team works hard to expedite this process as we know that time is of the essence in cases like this. We even stick around after the final settlement is agreed upon to make sure that you receive your check in a timely manner. It’s important to get started ASAP in order to get your claim settled sooner rather than later.

Wrongful death is defined as a “wrongful act, neglect, or default” that, had the deceased person survived the incident, they would be able to file a personal injury claim for. For example, if an individual is killed in a crash with a drunk driver, this would be considered a wrongful death because they would have still been able to sue the drunk driver for their injuries if they had lived.

In an effort to provide the citizens of Maine with accessible, affordable, and competent legal services, we serve our clients on a contingency fee basis. Unless we win compensation on your behalf, you don’t pay a thing. We also offer free case reviews to anyone interested in getting help with their case, so you have everything to gain by contacting our office today!
