Answers to Your Personal Injury FAQs, Lincoln, Nebraska

Personal injury law allows accident victims to take legal action against the liable parties, but the process can be arduous, especially for those still recovering from the experience. Like many people, you may not fully understand your rights, or know where to begin filing a claim. Below are answers to some of the questions accident victims often have about pursuing compensation.

Common FAQs About Personal Injury Law

What Type of Injuries Can I Sue For?

Because the law is more concerned with negligence and liability than the specific injuries you’ve received, a wide range of circumstances can provide grounds for a claim. Any time someone else’s carelessness or malice causes harm, you may have the standing to take legal action.

How Much Is My Claim Worth?

Calculating the value of a personal injury claim is deceptively complex, and often requires the expertise of an experienced attorney. In addition to your medical expenses and lost wages, you may be able to claim compensation for your pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and diminished quality of life.

When Should I File My Claim?

Because every state has a statute of limitations on personal injury claims, you should file as soon as possible. In Nebraska, victims lose the right to take legal action after four years, no matter how severe your injuries were or might be.

Do I Need an Attorney?

Insurance companies use a variety of techniques to minimize awards, so hiring a personal injury attorney is key to achieving the best possible outcome. Besides calculating your damages, they’ll collect evidence and negotiate with insurers to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
