Everyone owes everyone else a duty of care. Whether while driving a car, or operating a business, or providing healthcare services, or inviting guests into their home, each of us bears a legal responsibility to protect the safety of others. When someone fails that duty and someone else is injured as a result, they also bear a legal responsibility to compensate the injured for their damages.
Last year, nearly 58% of all auto collisions in Nebraska occurred in Douglas, Lancaster, Sarpy, and Dodge counties. More than 9,000 people were injured or killed. That number doesn’t even take into account those injured or killed while on unsafe premises, in a nursing home, or while using a defective product.
If someone else’s negligence caused your injuries, you may be able to assert a personal injury claim to recover damages. Your first step should be to call Harris & Associates, P.C., L.L.O. We have helped hundreds of injury victims in and around Omaha, Nebraska obtain fair settlements or judgments in personal injury claims and lawsuits.
Nebraska’s statute of limitations puts a time limit on filing personal injury claims. You have four years from the date of you were injured to settle an insurance claim or file a lawsuit. If filing against a governmental entity, for example, if you tripped and fell at city hall, the statute of limitations is only two years from the date of the fall.
