Understanding the Statute of Limitations
There are some important time limits to take into consideration with respect to a wrongful death lawsuit. Understandably, while a family mourns the loss of a loved one, filing a lawsuit is the last thing on your mind.
- District of Columbia, two years from the date of death
- Maryland, three years from the date of death

These are the general statutes of limitations, and under certain circumstances, the statute may be shorter or longer in a particular case. Our mission is to provide the very highest level of legal representation to our clients in an effective and compassionate manner.
