Fatal Car Accidents
We Help Families Get Compensation For the Loss Of A Loved One
A car accident can cause serious injuries. Sometimes, those injuries can be fatal. This shocking loss can be devastating for family members, especially if the victim helped provide for the family. When a loved one's death was the result of someone else's negligence, that person should be held accountable. The fatal car accident attorneys at Ausman Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O. help the loved ones of victims get justice throughout Nebraska and Iowa.
Our firm represents the families of victims killed in car accidents caused by another driver's negligence. We conduct our own investigation into the accident to find out exactly what happened. Our firm knows where to look for evidence proving the other driver was negligent. Examples of negligence include speeding, distracted driving, drowsy driving, reckless driving and driving under the influence.
We'll review police reports, medical records and other documents. We'll talk to witnesses. If needed, we'll consult accident reconstruction experts. If we find evidence that the other driver was negligent, we can file a wrongful death suit to recover compensation. The damages (financial compensation) we can seek may include:
- Loss of financial support for family and dependents
- Loss of personal companionship
- Funeral expenses
- Pain and suffering (yours or your loved one's, depending on which state the accident occurred)
- Medical expenses related to the accident
- Punitive damages
Compassionate Representation That Gets Results
We know that money can't replace your loved one. But taking legal action can hold the negligent driver responsible for what happened. And if your loved one was a provider, it can help your family gain some financial stability as you recover from your loss.
The negligent driver and insurance companies will likely deny responsibility for the accident. Our attorneys used to work for the insurance companies. We know the strategies insurance companies use. That's why we focus on building a strong case that can't be ignored.
We'll negotiate with the insurance company to try to reach a settlement agreement. And if they won't do what's right, we'll fight for your loved one in court. We have a strong track record of success. We're proud of our victories and the compensation we have been able to secure for our clients.
If you've lost a loved one in a fatal car accident, we encourage you to contact us for a free consultation. We know it can be difficult to talk about what happened. But taking action sooner rather than later can help build a stronger to case to ensure that your family receives justice.
