Nebraska Wrongful Death Lawyers
Fatal Accident Claim
Of all the challenges a family will face, the untimely death of a loved one is always tragic. Under Nebraska law, wrongful deaths are caused by accidents that could have been prevented if the responsible parties had acted with the slightest concern. This is magnified when the wrongful death occurs as a result of careless or malicious actions of someone else who is entrusted to provide care for the individual who dies. In the event of a wrongful death, families must also deal with the loss of income, costs related to death, and loss of future financial help from the victim.
