3 Ways to Recover Damages in Nebraska

First-Party Claims

Your first option is to recover damages from your own insurance company. Keep in mind that they might not give you enough money to completely cover all of your expenses, so you may want to also file a third-party claim.

Third-Party Claims

If another person was found to be at fault for your injury, you can also file a claim with their insurance company, also called a third-party claim. If they don’t have insurance, we’ll be able to guide you through further processes.

Filing a Lawsuit

Civil lawsuits can take time, stress, and money. To see if a lawsuit against the other person or your employer is best for your unique situation, contact our legal team and schedule a free consultation so we can go through your case together and weigh your options.

Don’t Take on This Challenge Alone


Factors to Consider

Nebraska Uses Modified Comparative Negligence

The state utilizes this system in injury cases, which was put into place because the courts don’t want people filing just because they were injured.

Compensation Depends
on Percentage of Fault

If you were found 25% at fault and your damages totaled $100,000, the compensation you would receive would actually be $75,000.

A Great Attorney Can
Make All the Difference

You'll be barred from receiving compensation if you were found to be 50% or more at fault, so contact an attorney to help you fight for what’s right.
