Wrongful Death

Maryland & Washington D.C. Wrongful Death Trial Lawyers

The loss of a loved one due to the carelessness or negligence of someone else is an unacceptable tragedy. The law allows certain survivors to sue for recovery of medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of consortium (companionship), loss of future income, as well as other types of damages.

While no amount of money can replace a loved one, just compensation can help survivors provide care for orphaned children and offer spouses financial support to keep their homes and meet their own financial obligations.

Our Lawyers Give You Personal Attention

Death of a Five Year Old. Michael lived in an apartment in Southeast Washington. Alone in a screened-in room on a hot summer day, he fell through the ill-fitting screen four stories to his death. The building owner denied responsibility and claimed that the child had jumped. Michael Ain took the case to trial and a jury awarded a substantial verdict to the child’s estate and his mother.

Death of a Baby During Childbirth.
An obstetrician for a large HMO attempted a vaginal delivery of an infant too large rather than delivering by caesarian section. During the process, the infant’s shoulders got stuck in the birth canal and the doctor was unable to deliver him alive. Michael Ain obtained a substantial settlement before trial.

Duty of D.C. Child Protective Services
A young child starved to death while under the care of his father, a drug addict. The estranged mother had alerted the D.C. Child Protective Services agency that her children were in danger and not being fed. The agency failed to investigate. The District of Columbia denied responsibility for the death, claiming that it owed no special duty to the children or their mother. The case was thrown out of court. Gary Stein co-authored the appeal brief that led to a Court of Appeals decision reversing the trial court and holding that the agency did owe a special duty to the children once it had been notified of the specific danger. See Turner v. D.C., 532 A.2d 662 (D.C. 1987).

Our attorneys appreciate the emotional pain of your loss and work hard to prepare each case as if we were going to trial on your behalf. Our aggressive case development sends a clear message to insurance companies that if they do not offer a fair settlement, we are prepared to sue.

Although we  seek to settle most cases in order to help families find closure faster and to avoid the expense of litigation, if we need to go to court, our lawyers are experienced trial lawyers who will fight for you.

Some law firms advertise for tort cases on television and do a large volume of business.  Often at those firms, cases are managed by paralegals or other staffers, and clients rarely if ever see their lawyers.  At Ain & Stein, from the time of your initial interview with Michael Ain or Gary Stein, your case is handled personally by a lawyer with twenty-five years of experience, assisted by their able, experienced staff.  It is a tribute to their skills and success that nearly all of Ain & Stein’s personal injury clients were referred by other satisfied clients or by lawyers familiar with the results Ain & Stein have achieved for clients.

Compassionate Legal Representation

No one can ever be prepared to face the unexpected loss of a loved one due to the negligence of another person. Our attorneys offer compassionate legal representation so you do not have to take endless calls from uncaring insurance companies who only want to offer you the least amount possible.  Sometimes insurers will even attempt to blame the victim for their own death to avoid paying on a claim. We know how to fight insurance companies and will aggressively prepare your case to hold all parties responsible for the loss of your loved one.

The attorneys of Ain & Stein are here to help. Over the years they have secured millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for injured clients, and are here to put their education, experience and skills to work for you.
