ADCV&R attorneys obtain ruling in the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland in favor of family medicine physician and pain management specialist in wrongful death case originally filed in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, Maryland.  The trial court dismissed the plaintiffs’ wrongful death claim upon motion by the defense for failure to file within the applicable statute of limitations.  The trial court held that the savings provision set forth in Section 5-119 of the Courts and Judicial Proceedings Article of the Maryland Code did not apply to extend the limitations period applicable to the plaintiffs’ wrongful death claim.  The Court of Special Appeals affirmed the trial court’s dismissal of the plaintiffs’ claim.
