Maryland Court Blocks Non-Dependent’s Wrongful Death Suit Against Late Father’s Employer

“Although neither this Court nor the Supreme Court of Maryland has considered the exact issue presented here, i.e., whether the Workers’ Compensation Act’s exclusivity provision applies to a non-dependent, our Courts have considered whether a wrongful death plaintiff is permitted to bring a wrongful death claim when a covered employee is killed in the course of his or her employment,” said Senior Judge Alexander Wright Jr., who was specially assigned to the case.
