Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is a claim against someone who can be held liable for a death due to negligence or misconduct. There may be criminal prosecution related to a fatality, however a wrongful death lawsuit is a civil action that is separate from any criminal charge.

The most common wrongful death cases in Nebraska arise from the following:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Faulty Product
  • Workplace Accident
  • Boating Accident
  • Pedestrian Accident

No amount of money can replace the life of a loved one, but it can help take the burden off of your family by helping to pay for things such as funeral expenses, medical bills, lost wages and emotional toll.


The last thing you’re thinking about when dealing with an unexpected death in your family is hiring a lawyer. At Friedman Law Offices we understand that and it’s why we make the process easy for you and your family. We have the expertise and skills to represent your family sensitively and professionally.

After a wrongful death lawsuit has been filed, both parties will begin an investigation into the cause of the death. Insurance companies for the defending party will attempt to minimize the compensation value you may receive. With over 58 years of law experience, we have seen it all and we know how to fight back against the insurance companies. Our team will do everything within the constraints of the law to make sure your family receives the proper compensation for the loss of a loved one.

In the state of Nebraska, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed up to two years after the accident. If you have lost a loved one due to the actions of another person, contact us as soon as you’re ready.
