Nebraska Personal Injury Laws
In Nebraska, personal injury laws cover cases where a person suffers harm or injury due to the negligent or intentional actions of another party. Personal injury claims typically arise from various incidents, including car accidents, slips and falls, medical malpractice, product defects, and more.
To successfully prove a personal injury lawsuit based on negligence in Nebraska, you generally need to establish the following elements:
- Duty of Care: You must show that the defendant owed you a duty of care. This means that the defendant had a legal obligation to act reasonably and avoid causing harm or injury to others. For example, drivers have a duty to follow traffic laws and operate their vehicles safely.
- Breach of Duty: You must demonstrate that the defendant breached their duty of care. This involves showing that the defendant failed to act reasonably or did something that a reasonable person in their position would not have done. This could include actions like texting while driving, medical negligence, or failing to maintain a safe premises.
- Causation: You need to establish a causal link between the defendant's breach of duty and your injuries. In other words, you must demonstrate that the defendant's actions or negligence directly caused or substantially contributed to your injuries.
- Damages: You must provide evidence of the damages you have suffered as a result of the defendant's breach of duty. Damages can include both economic losses (such as medical expenses, lost wages, property damage) and non-economic losses (such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life).
Nebraska follows the doctrine of comparative negligence. This means that if you are partially at fault for the accident or injury, your compensation may be reduced based on your percentage of fault. However, you can still recover damages as long as you are found to be less than 50% at fault.
Proving these elements requires gathering evidence, such as accident reports, medical records, witness testimonies, expert opinions, and any other relevant documentation. It's highly recommended to consult with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney in Nebraska who can guide you through the legal process, help gather evidence, and present a strong case on your behalf.
You generally have four years from the date of an injury to file a personal injury claim in Nebraska. If you wait too long to file, you may lose your right to compensation.
