Personal Injury

Gering Personal Injury Lawyers

A personal injury can cause enormous life chaos, from landing you in a hospital to removing you from the workforce and thus endangering your livelihood to traumatizing you through physical pain, emotional distress, and financial uncertainty. These situations, caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another party, require taking legal action in a personal injury claim against the other party or parties. They commonly involve dealing with their insurers. It can be a daunting process to handle these legal details at such a vulnerable time in your life and, added to the stress, insurers can make the process frustrating, complicated, and disheartening.

Personal Injury Cases in Nebraska 

Our firm handles a wide variety of injury claims stemming from such events as:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Rideshare accidents
  • Defective or dangerous consumer goods
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Animal attacks

We work with third-party experts in various areas to help us investigate the medical, technical, and other aspects of your claim as well as to conduct our own independent investigation into the details of the event. Our diligent work in this regard allows us to thoroughly prepare your case to put you in the strongest legal position for an optimum settlement or, should it be necessary, a civil trial.

Our goal is to help you secure maximized compensation for all your losses and damages, such as:

  • Your past and future predicted medical expenses, from hospitalization to recurring doctor visits to rehabilitation therapies, and more
  • Property damage, such as to your vehicle in a traffic accident
  • Loss of income/wages 
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Any other damages relevant to your case

Where you have lost a loved one in an accident based on negligence or deliberate malice, we can also represent you in the pursuit of all available wrongful death damages. 

In all these matters, you may be going up against the well-funded corporate interests of an insurance company on behalf of its at-fault policyholder. While you may believe that they will be fair with you, chances are that they will not. Their adjusters and employees work for the benefit of their employer as opposed to what is best for you. Thus, they commonly engage in tactics designed to pay you as little as possible. An example of this is offering you a quick settlement far below the true value of your claim.

With our firm on your side, at-fault parties and their insurers will be more amenable to negotiating full and just compensation to avoid the time, expense, and effort of a trial. 

If you or someone you love has suffered a personal injury, we strongly recommend that you put our experienced and skilled attorney on your side as soon as possible. Make no statements and sign no agreements until you speak with us and learn more about your rights and how we can protect you in these critical claims today.
