When you merge onto the highway or into another lane, you don't expect to feel the impact of another vehicle merging into the same lane. When you are driving next to a semi-truck, you expect to be safe on the road with a professional driver. But the weather, road conditions, and negligence all can cause accidents that end in damage and injury.
Having the counsel and guidance of an experienced car accident attorney will give you a better understanding of your case and how to pursue the highest compensation attainable.
Auto Accidents in Nebraska
The state of Nebraska requires its citizens to have liability car insurance and is a 'fault state." Meaning, the driver who is determined to be responsible - or their insurance company - must pay the cost of damages.
The statute of limitations to file a car accident claim is four years from the date of the accident, but you shouldn't wait to start the process of recovery. Hiring an experienced auto accident attorney immediately following the incident can greatly impact the amount of compensation you are able to get from the insurance companies and the at-fault party.
Filing an auto accident claim
When you file an insurance claim, you will be asked to fill out and provide paperwork, and you will need to determine how you want to file. You may choose any of the following ways:
File a claim with your own insurance company
File a claim with the other driver's insurance company
File a lawsuit
Your attorney will help you determine the best route to take and will guide you through the legal process; drafting paperwork and handling the insurance company and claims investigators. You should be focused on recovering from your injuries and taking care of any upset to your life caused by the accident. Put your burden on my shoulders and let me handle the legalities of your case.
Things to keep in mind
Each party involved in your case will likely have a different desired outcome and will push their agenda on you. However, the pressure to concede to take a low settlement will keep you from getting the amount you are owed and prevents you from pursuing any claim in the future.
Usually, insurance companies want to settle quickly to avoid paying out the full extent of your claim. Though an early settlement is discouraged, reaching a settlement before going to trial will save you litigation costs and the physical and emotional strain of a trial.
