Fatal Accidents

Helping You Cope Financially When the Worst Happens

In the world of the law, it is called a wrongful death. And if you have lost a parent, a child, a spouse or somebody who meant the world to you, there is no other way to think about it. How could it have happened? And what do you do now?

When deadly accidents happen, the last thing anyone may want to think about is how to face tomorrow. But the loss of a loved one can put a financial burden on families, making an already stressful situation even worse. At Hartel, DeSantis & Howie, LLP, we ease the burden by dealing with insurance companies and helping you obtain compensation to cover the costs of final expenses, lost future income and more.

Helping Clients in Hanover, Annapolis and Throughout the Washington, DC Region Obtain Needed Compensation

As fatal accident lawyers in Hanover, MD, it is our job to assert your rights – including your right to recover damages that can help provide for your family. We have been serving clients throughout the region for more than a decade. We have a reputation for providing the compassionate care and service that helps clients through tough times. More importantly, we have the skills, tools and experience to make sure that clients receive full compensation for:

  • Medical bills, such as emergency room, hospital and surgical bills
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of consortium and loss of emotional support
  • Funeral expenses
  • Pain and suffering

We often rely on our trusted experts to help build a case on your behalf. We work with a network of investigators, accident reconstructionists, psychologists and economists who are strategic assets. For example, as a law firm with a practice in auto accidents, in a wrongful death caused by a motor vehicle accident, we may call upon investigators and reconstructionists to help establish what happened, and psychologists and economists to determine what the impact will be on the victim’s family members.

Like most personal injury cases, fatal accident and wrongful death cases are taken on contingency. You do not have to pay any attorney fees or expenses related to your case. Fees are included in the compensation – so if we do not win, you pay nothing. We know you have many concerns, and to help address some of them, we have created a Frequently Asked Questions About Fatal Accidents page that you may find helpful.
