We will take care of the legal details while your family focuses on the grieving process and putting your lives back together. Serving Prince George's County and Charles County, our legal team has obtained significant recoveries in wrongful death cases.

When we seek fair compensation for a wrongful death, the insurance companies and the individuals or corporations they represent often have the opposite agenda. Their goal is to deny liability or limit the payment of damages. Our law firm has a long reputation of standing up to these powerful entities.

We have obtained verdicts and settlements in many types of wrongful death cases:

  • Auto collisions
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Commercial vehicle accidents
  • Work-related fatalities
  • Medical malpractice
  • Nursing home neglect

We work with accident reconstruction experts, engineers, medical experts and other professionals to investigate an "accidental" death to reveal the underlying carelessness, negligence or intentional acts. Mr. Palumbo identifies and explores legal action against all parties that may be liable for your loved one's untimely death.


Damages in a wrongful death lawsuit reflect the losses of the survivors. We work with family members and professionals to quantify the measurable impact, from projected lifetime earnings of the deceased to loss of that person's consortium, companionship, support and household services. If the person experienced conscious pain and suffering prior to death, the estate of the deceased can also seek damages in a parallel survivor action.

We know this is a difficult and chaotic time. You have our condolences and our sincere desire to help. Our wrongful death attorney can sit down with you to discuss your rights and legal remedies.
