Who Can Make a Wrongful Death Claim?

In Maine, a wrongful death claim can be filed when an individual or party's reckless, careless, or intentional act causes a person's death. Essentially, a wrongful death claim is a type of personal injury claim in which the injured person can no longer bring their case to court. In Maine, any person interested in the deceased's estate, including a family member, friend, or other parties, may file a civil suit.

A wrongful death lawsuit must be brought within two years in Maine. After this time, the state’s statute of limitations will prevent the case from being heard in court, and all rights to legal action will be forfeited. Therefore, paying attention to these deadlines is essential so that surviving family members do not miss out on their opportunity to take legal action.

Bringing Justice to Families in Maine

Losing a loved one is one of the most unbearable and difficult situations you may ever encounter. While no money will ever ease the loss of your loved one, it is your right to pursue financial compensation to help offset costs related to the accident, including medical bills and funeral costs. You may also obtain payment for several non-economic damages, including loss of consortium, loss of financial support, pain and suffering experienced by the deceased person before their passing, and emotional anguish. In cases with particularly egregious circumstances, exemplary (punitive) damages may also be awarded to discourage further misconduct in the future.

Wrongful death claims are about much more than just money – they are a way to hold guilty parties responsible for their negligence and help ensure that others are protected from similar accidents.
