Q. Who's Responsible for My Injuries?

If you've suffered injuries on someone else's property, there are different parties who you can hold legally responsible. Depending on the circumstances, the property owner, landlord or tenant can be liable for your damages.

If you get hurt on the side walk, the city or county who maintains it can be held liable for your injuries. But, dealing with a government agency like a city or county can get difficult. Having a lawyer who knows the law can help you get the settlement you need.

Q. Should I Take an Insurance Company Settlement?

No! Don't ever accept the first settlement offer an insurance company give you. Insurance adjusters are trying to save their company money. Adjusters will offer you less than you need to fully recover. While it may be tempting to take their offer, you're short-changing yourself. Accepting a settlement from the insurance company might prevent you from receiving further compensation you might need later.

Q. What Do I Do After a Premises Liability Injury in Nebraska?

If you have suffered a premises liability injury, you should:

  • Write down everything. Take notes. You'll be able to keep the accident scene facts clear. You'll also be able to provide your attorney the details of exactly what happened.
  • Keep track of all your expenses. You might be able to pursue financial compensation for all your expenses. This includes medical bills, and lost wages.
  • Get medical treatment as soon as possible. Even if you feel all right after the injury, medical problems can pop up days, weeks, or even months after you got hurt.
  • Collect evidence. If you can, take pictures of the scene of your injury. Be sure to get contact info from all witnesses, too.
  • Contact an experienced premises liability lawyer.
