Criminal defense cases cover both criminal suits — charges brought by the government to punish an individual for an act classified as a crime — and civil suits — claims brought by individuals or organizations as a dispute over rights and duties.
Death is one of the most difficult things to deal with in life. Unfortunately, many accidents result in death, and death can be even more difficult to accept when the cause of death was due to the negligence of another person. Pursuant to Nebraska Revised Statute 30-809, the wife, husband, or next of kin of the person who was killed by the wrongful act may bring a wrongful death claim against the person, company, or entity that was responsible for causing the death. The wrongful death attorneys at Chandler Conway represent the families of the victims in pursuing their wrongful death actions.
Wrongful death claims are different from other injury claims. Among other differences, there is typically a much shorter time period in which to pursue the claim (statute of limitations), and the claims also involve separate filings in probate court. Our wrongful death attorneys can guide you through the process and ensure all potential claims are protected while you and your family focus on healing.
