Omaha Drowning Accident Attorney

Drowning Accident Claims in Nebraska

What started out as a nice day out on the water, with the family and friends quickly became your worst nightmare. One person's lack of care and outright disregard for safety has left you with traumatic injuries – or worse – caused the drowning of a loved one. You are now faced with the terrible questions that so often accompany these kinds of accidents:

  • Who is responsible for this incident and can they be held responsible?
  • How will I ever pay for all of these medical bills?
  • What kind of legal options do I have available?
  • Should I retain a lawyer?

No parent should be confronted with these kinds of questions after an outing to the pool or lake. Unfortunately, each year many Nebraskan families are faced with these kinds of concerns and more, simply because the person entrusted with their safety failed to act in a responsible manner. If you have recently been involved in a similar accident, the time to act is now. Call Cullan & Cullan LLC and get the representation you need to hold the at-fault party responsible. With our superior representation and comprehensive understanding of traumatic injuries at your side, you stand an excellent chance at obtaining the compensation you deserve.

Call (402) 882-7080 to schedule a free consultation with a member of our team today.

Keep in mind that time is of the essence in circumstances such as yours. While the last thing on your mind may be filing any type of legal proceedings, the sooner you take action, the greater your odds will be at completing a successful claim. There is one primary reason for this kind of necessary expediency. The state of Nebraska maintains a statute of limitations on all personal injury claims. This means that you have a small window of opportunity in which to file. Failing to do so can mean an immediate loss of rights and compensation. Additionally, evidence from water-based accidents must be gathered quickly in order to avoid losing it forever.

So, don't delay. Make the call to Cullan & Cullan LLC at your earliest convenience. Together we can secure the kind of compensation you need to overcome any immediate hurdles and offset any future obstacles.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect in Nebraska?

Unfortunately, there is no way to predict what kinds of compensation you will be able to collect, following a successful settlement. There are simply too many variables involved. However, there are a number of categories that most awards fall into. The following are just a few examples of what you might be able eligible for:

  • Medical bill
  • Doctor's fees
  • Funerary costs
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of wages or employment

Before time runs out on your claim, call Cullan & Cullan LLC to discuss your next steps and options. You can't afford to let this opportunity pass you or your family by. Dial (402) 882-7080 or submit your information online and a representative from our office will contact you shortly.
