So I’ve been dealing with this law firm since 2020 since my first accident and I can tell you one thing about this law firm they gonna make sure you get everything You deserve and everything you need‼️ mrs Lindsey has been on go for me since my first case so when i had my second accident and i felt like i was overwhelmed i picked up that phone while i was sitting in the doctors office crying because i couldn’t get in contact with my wc adjuster and as soon as I called her, she got in contact with them within 24 hours‼️ I received a call from the Worker’s Compensation adjuster the following day and I received my ankle brace like three days after that remind you i was in a boot for about 3-4 months and that whole time i was trying to reach out to the wc adjuster I was leaving messages. Never got a call back And I was so depressed ‼️ but when I tell you that day i called Mrs Lindsey she made my life so much easier I mean it. I’m not just saying it just because I’ve been dealing with this law firm 2020 ( let me take that back ) it is because i been dealing with them so sooo long 🙏🏽 and i have always gotten the best care with them‼️when I tell you this law firm is so amazing, I will always have them as I workers compensation lawyer ‼️💕🤞🏾

If you are looking for lawyer to explain your worker’s comp rights; listen to your story; give you advice and guidance; and maximize your settlement, Jason Schultz is not for you. I should have know better to stay with this lawyer, as clear communication was never his top priority.

Mr. Shultz and his legal team are amazing! I'm aware they have other specialties, but I recommend them for any type of Worker's Comp case that you have, any day of the week! I had the pleasure of dealing with Ms. Kristie, who made sure I was set up for appointments and had knowledge of the days and times, and that all paperwork was straight. After it was all said and done, it took all of one week for a decision to come back and a few days until I could come pickup my check. Shultz legal team made this process so easy for me and I am forever appreciative. This is the team for you, hands down!

Amazing group! The entire team at Schultz Legal really considers the client when taking on a case. I wasn’t very knowledgeable in the in the realm of Workers Comp at the beginning of my case, but Jason, Lindsey(who is an absolute rockstar), and the rest of the team really worked to ensure that I could understand the process and that I was kept up to date on everything it involved. They were professional, informative, attentive, and overall a very pleasant group to work with throughout the whole process. I’m lucky to have had Jason and his team as legal representation in this matter. I would highly recommend Schultz Legal to anyone who happens to find themselves in a situation involving WC.Thank you!

The experience with Shultz legal was ok I didn't no to much about their firm my case was transferred to him from partner Mallon. But far as what I experienced in the time dealing with them I say things moved a little slow but it worked out. Ok now I still believe for what it's worth I didn't get the fair share for my pain but I can deal with that because it has been so long in I have to keep working for my family it never was about a lawsuit in money but anyway I just want to thank Shultz and Mallon in all their assistants team members for playing their part in my life doing my difficult situations I am humbled.

When Do I Have A Claim To Wrongful Death In Baltimore?

In Baltimore, a wrongful death claim can be pursued when a person’s death is caused by another’s negligence or intentional act. This typically involves situations where the deceased could have filed a personal injury lawsuit had they survived. Close family members, such as a spouse, parents, or children, are generally eligible to file the claim.

The claim seeks to compensate for the emotional and financial impact of the loss, including mental anguish, loss of companionship, and financial support. It’s important for those affected to consult a legal professional to understand their rights and the specifics of their case in the context of Maryland laws.

Here are some common situations that might lead to a wrongful death claim:

Medical Malpractice: Errors in diagnosis, treatment, surgery, or medication that lead to death.
Vehicle Accidents: Fatalities resulting from negligent driving in car, truck, motorcycle, or pedestrian accidents.
Workplace Accidents: Deaths occurring due to unsafe work environments or practices, particularly in high-risk industries.
Criminal Actions: Deaths resulting from criminal activities, including violent crimes.
Product Liability: Fatal injuries caused by defective or unsafe products.
Premises Liability: Deaths due to hazardous conditions on someone else’s property, such as slip and fall accidents.
Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect: Fatalities arising from improper care or abuse in elder care facilities.

What Is The Average Settlement From A Wrongful Death Case in Maryland?

Factors influencing settlement amounts include the circumstances of the death, the decedent’s age and earning capacity, the impact on surviving family members, and the degree of negligence involved. Settlements can range from modest amounts to several million dollars.

In Maryland, economic damages in wrongful death cases, which cover tangible losses like lost wages and medical expenses, are not capped. However, non-economic damages, which include pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and emotional distress, are subject to caps. As of 2023, the cap for non-economic damages in personal injury cases is $935,000, and for wrongful death cases with two or more survivors, the cap is $2,262,500. These caps are adjusted annually for inflation.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations For A Wrongful Death Case In Maryland?

In Maryland, the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death lawsuit is generally three years from the date of the deceased person’s death. However, for cases involving occupational diseases linked to exposure to toxic substances in the workplace, the statute of limitations extends to either ten years from the date of death or three years from the date when the cause of death was discovered, whichever is shorter.
