What Kind of Compensation Can I Receive for a Premises Accident in Nebraska?

It is virtually impossible to accurately project what type of award a plaintiff can expect, even after an initial case consultation. There are simply too many variables in place and potential outcomes to say for certain. However, in almost every case, the injured party can expect compensation from a number of specific categories. Those are:
  • Economic - Medical expenses, doctor’s fee, rehabilitation costs, lost wages
  • Non-economic - Pain and suffering, emotional anguish
  • Punitive - Damages handed down by the courts geared toward punishing the at-fault party for especially egregious behavior.

Should I Speak With a Omaha Escalator Injury Attorney?

When it comes to serious injuries sustained because of a property owner's or management company’s negligence, you cannot afford to be without legal representation. While their insurance policy may cover the cost of your settlement, their insurance company will do everything in their power to make sure you don’t see a single dime. The only way to effectively handle both the at-fault party and the insurance adjustors surrounding them is through aggressive legal representation.
