Omaha Wrongful Death Lawyer

If your loved one was killed as the result of someone else’s negligence, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.

Even a brief, no-obligation phone call to our office can give you critical information to allow you peace of mind.

Matthew G. Miller can help ensure that you are able to seek justice on behalf of your loved one and make sure your family is compensated for the loss.

Sometimes the injuries from an accident can be fatal to one or more of the victims.  In these situations, the law compensates the families through a type of personal injury claim called a “wrongful death” case.  In these cases, a representative of the deceased victim can bring a claim against the negligent party or parties that caused the death. When you have lost a loved one in an accident, it can be difficult to think about the legal options you have at a time when you are usually focused on grieving.  However, you only have a limited time in which you can file a claim.  If you miss the deadline, you will be unable to seek justice on your loved one’s behalf, regardless of how wrongful the conduct was of the party that caused their death.

Types of Accidents in Nebraska that Give Rise to Wrongful Death Claims

There are many different types of personal injury claims that can involve deadly injuries.  Matthew G. Miller can help families who are struggling with the loss of a loved one by handling their wrongful death claim on their behalf.  Some of the common causes of wrongful death in Omaha include:

  • Car Accidents:  Auto accidents can cause fatal injuries to their victims.  This is particularly true in accidents involving a large truck, motorcycle, pedestrian, or an individual who is susceptible to injury, such as a child or an elderly person.
  • Work Accidents: Many jobs can be dangerous.  Things like mining, manufacturing, construction, and truck driving have higher rates of fatal injuries to their workers, but the reality of the situation is that death on the job can affect any industry.
  • Premises Liability: Premises liability, also known as “slip-and-falls,” can cause fatal injury to the victim, especially when the victim of the fall suffers a head injury.

Although these are the primary root causes of wrongful death, any type of personal injury accident can be converted into a wrongful death claim if the victim succumbs to their injuries.

I never dreamed I would need legal council until my husband was killed in a boating incident. I was lost as to what to do next. I knew I needed a lawyer. Matt was the first lawyer I visited. By the time I left his office, I felt comfortable and confident that Matt had my family in his best interest. I thought to be fair I should visit other lawyers. I interviewed two other lawyers and knew within minutes I was just another client to them. Matt was personable, honest, caring and easy to talk to. He explained the options and decisions of my case thoroughly. He acted promptly and went the extra mile to help my family. When it was time to settle, I felt like I was discussing my case with a close friend. He was intelligent and knowledgeable and counseled me about what was best. Matt helped my family and me through a very difficult time. I would refer Matt to anyone seeking professional advice.
