Wrongful Death

Silverman Thompson Attorneys Andrew Slutkin and Ethan Nochumowitz are widely regarded as two of the top wrongful death attorneys in the state of Maryland. Mr. Slutkin and Mr. Nochumowitz routinely obtain million-dollar and multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of families who have suffered the loss of a loved one as a result of someone else’s negligence. They have significant experience handling wrongful death cases in a wide range of areas, including wrongful deaths arising out of:

  • car accidents
  • truck accidents and tractor trailer accidents
  • pedestrians hit by vehicles
  • construction site incidents and falls
  • use of heavy machinery (such as fork lifts and dump trucks)
  • use of off-road vehicles (such as ATVs)
  • fires
  • explosions
  • drownings
  • boat propeller injuries
  • shootings
  • automatic doors/elevators
  • negligently-designed and manufactured products

As experienced, successful trial attorneys, Mr. Slutkin and Mr. Nochumowitz have proven that they will not settle a wrongful death case simply to avoid a trial. For example, in a recent product liability death case at a construction site, they rejected a settlement offer of $750,000 and went on to obtain a jury verdict at trial of $4,844,000. In a car accident death case, they rejected an offer of $1,500,000 and went on to obtain a jury verdict at trial of $2,800,000. As a result of tremendous verdicts such as these and others, defense attorneys and insurance companies take notice when Mr. Slutkin and Mr. Nochumowitz represent the Plaintiffs in a wrongful death case.
