In Maine, the family member of the deceased has two years from the date of death to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Failure to meet this deadline can stop all motions to pursue any further legal action. Don’t delay; let the Romanow Law Group in Portland, Maine protect your rights.

What is a wrongful death claim?

In Maine, wrongful death is a civil matter that arises when a person's life is cut short due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions of another party.

Wrongful deaths can occur in various types of accidents, including but not limited to car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, medical malpractice incidents, workplace accidents, and acts of violence. Regardless of the type of accident that brought about the death, when the actions of another party lead to the untimely death of a loved one, you have the right to hold them accountable.

In addition to the civil aspect of a wrongful death claim, it's important to understand that some cases may involve criminal proceedings as well. If the responsible party's actions were deemed to be willful or involved criminal intent, they may face criminal charges in addition to the lawsuit. But remember that your wrongful death case is distinct from any criminal charges that may be filed by the State of Maine in connection with the same death.

Possible recoverable damages

While no amount of money can truly compensate for the loss of a beloved family member, pursuing a wrongful death claim can provide some measure of financial support during this challenging time. In Maine, the legal system recognizes the importance of holding responsible parties accountable for their actions. This can provide monetary relief to surviving family members. These awards, granted through wrongful death claims, aim to address the economic and non-economic impacts of the loss.

The compensation awarded in a wrongful death case can help alleviate the financial burdens that arise from the sudden death of a loved one. It can assist in covering any of the following damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Estate administration fees
  • Loss of consortium
  • Mental anguish
