Why a Personal Injury Attorney is Necessary
Most motor vehicle accidents have a clear-cut explanation as to who was at fault. Nebraska laws are designed so that the person responsible typically cannot avoid being held responsible for any injuries or damages caused by the accident. However, this does not mean that legal consultation should not be pursued following an accident. Contact Demerath Law Office for a free consultation. We will make sure you are compensated fairly.
Insurance companies are a business. Their first responsibility is protecting their bottom line, not necessarily the rights of those who have sustained injuries in a motor vehicle collision. To protect their profits, they will only pay out the bare minimum and cut corners if necessary. This often results in victims taking an early settlement. However, victims should never agree to any settlement without first consulting with an attorney. This will ensure fair compensation.
Wrongful Death Claims and Fatal Accidents in Nebraska
Wrongful death claims are civil actions filed by survivors of an individual or individuals killed in an accident due to the negligence of another individual or company. Those who are left behind are the ones that have to take financial responsibility for the loss of their loved ones. Compensation provided by damages for a wrongful death can help ease financial burdens. This compensation is designed to help cover medical and funeral expenses as well as pain and suffering and income loss.
On the surface, a personal injury claim is straightforward. All you have to do is prove that the person or company that caused the injury was liable for the injuries or damages you received. Many accidents lead to permanent injury. In order to make sure that victims are compensated fairly the victim must obtain legal assistance as soon as possible.
It’s only an experienced attorney that is able to present clear evidence regarding the nature and extent of the injuries sustained. Many victims think that compensation is limited to only medical bills and lost income. However, there is pain and suffering that one experiences and should be compensated for. This allows them to have financial security.
