Montag, your Accident Personal Injury Lawyer, and his staff can put their extensive experience to work for you, to get you the compensation you deserve.
Why You Should Hire Accident Lawyers
Injury litigation is complex. Accident victims need the assistance of experienced legal counsel to avoid mistakes that will harm their claims. Insurance companies frequently try to take advantage of or bully accident victims who have not hired a skilled motor vehicle accident trial lawyer. Additional reasons to hire a personal injury lawyer are as follows:
Payment for Damages
You have the right to be paid appropriate compensation for your loss of present or future income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. You also deserve compensation for your emotional and any harm to your quality of life during your convalescence or resulting from permanent disabilities. An experienced injury attorney can compel an insurance company to settle your claim fairly or get the compensation you deserve at trial.
Favorable Resolution of Liability Disputes
At-fault drivers often tell false stories about the circumstances of an accident. Accidents often bring out the worst in people. Insurance will often spin the story to blame the victim and avoid paying compensation. An experienced lawyer can help bring out the truth even in an adversarial situation. By using experts to document the cause and severity of your injuries and for accident reconstruction, an attorney can prove liability and the full extent of your injuries.
Determining Coverage by Insurance
A motor vehicle accident often involves sorting out complex issues of liability. You have to prove that there was a negligent act that caused your injury and that it was covered by insurance. There are usually one or more car insurance policies, there is also frequently health insurance or Medicaid and Medicare involved. Sometimes there may even be homeowners insurance that provides coverage or even a government entity with liability. There are times when multiple defendants share responsibility for causing an accident or when underinsured and uninsured coverage must be used. We help you navigate the maze of insurance. It takes an expert in to take full advantage of the defendant’s insurance and your own benefits. You cannot reasonably expect to do everything right if you try to handle your own claim and even an attorney whose practice focuses on other types of law could not easily get it right. The Accident Personal Injury Lawyers at Montag Law Office have the expertise and experience to effectively represent you and obtain the compensation you deserve.
Claims Against a Government Agency
There are several different possibilities of types of claims that depend on who caused your injury. In Nebraska, there are agencies that are governed by the State Court Claims Act and there is also the Political Subdivisions Tort Claims Act that applies to different government organizations. You could even have a claim against the federal government. Each of these situations involves their own statutes of limitations, different liability limitations and different procedures for notice and filing a claim. These are cases that demand a very high level of knowledge and skill. You could only expect them to be handled competently by an experienced injury attorney.
