WRONGFUL DEATH ATTORNEYS IN OMAHA, NEBRASKA
When someone you love dies in an accident, the anguish you feel can be compounded by frustration. Filing a lawsuit won’t bring the person back, but it may prevent the wrongful deaths of other people. Monetary damages can also help to pay for funeral costs, medical fees, lost wages, and other expenses.
If you are grieving the accidental loss of a loved one and are interested in suing the negligent parties, our law firm can help. Abrahamson Law Office is a father-daughter team, and we understand your pain. Our office is located in Omaha, and we are available to clients in Sarpy, Douglas, Washington, Saunders, Otoe, and Dodge Counties.
Why File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Wrongful deaths happen all too often. In fact, they are the third leading cause of death in the United States. Recovering monetary damages from those who caused the death of your loved one isn’t an adequate replacement for having them in your life. However, by making the liable parties pay for their fault, you could prevent a tragedy from happening to someone else.
Additionally, you may want to file a wrongful death claim to compensate for financial loss as a result of the accident or the loss of income once contributed by the deceased. Abrahamson Law Office is a family business and we handle these matters with dignity and compassion.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Generally, the wrongful death claim is sought by the surviving spouse or next of kin and it is resolved by either a settlement or a court judgment. Legal counsel is needed in order to file a claim.
In Nebraska, the statute of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits is two years. That means that the claim must be filed with the court within two years after the death of the deceased.
Proving Liability in a Nebraska Wrongful Death Claim
To succeed in a wrongful death suit, you must show that the parties who caused the accident were negligent by demonstrating that the other party did not act with the care required by the situation and that this faulty behavior caused the death.
As skilled attorneys, we at Abrahamson Law Office are practiced in proving liability so that our clients can be rewarded by the negligent persons.

Lost wages of the deceased
Pain and suffering of the deceased prior to their death
Loss of companionship and love for the spouse or children
