Your Tough Omaha Car Accident Attorney
Car accidents cause a lot of stress. Immediately following an accident can be a time of crisis. You may have to deal with serious possibly even life-threatening injuries. Even after the initial excitement is over, your problems are not finished. The long and painful process of recovering from your injuries is only just beginning. Accidents cause transportation problems, health problems and problems working. You may have financial pressures due to large bills and lost income. Rather than doing the things you normally enjoy doing with your family or friends, you will have to spend time in pain, going to doctors and dealing with things like car problems and problems on the job.

Mr. Montag is an A+ rated member of the Better Business Bureau and has been awarded as a member of the BBB Honor Roll for the excellence of service. Steven A. Montag has been dedicated to helping injured people since 1998. Minor accidents may not require a lawyer but anyone who has been injured as a result of an accident caused by someone else should consider hiring an injury law specialist like Steven A. Montag. Mr. Montag will discuss your accident in a free initial telephone consultation. There is no obligation, just call (800) 533-0067. It does not cost you anything to learn if you have a good case and to see if a lawyer can help you.
How Much Does a Car Accident Attorney Cost?
The Montag Law Office normally charges a 1/3 contingent fee. That is the standard fee for Injury Attorneys. A contingent fee means that there is no up-front retainer fee. That is different than other types of law. If you were defending against a charge of DUI or any criminal offense, a lawyer would charge an up-front fee and bill by the hour using that fee. Fees for accident cases are different than criminal defense fees. The time right after an accident is normally a very hard time for money. You have car problems that cost money. You have injuries that cost money to treat. You may be missing time from work causing you to lose income. It would be a hard time for most people to pay money to hire a lawyer. If you hire the Montag Law Office we get paid at the same time you do from your injury settlement or court judgment.
How Much Is Your Claim Worth?
In Nebraska, you are entitled to reimbursement of Special Damages such as the value of property damage, the amount of medical bills and lost wages or future income. If you were seriously injured by someone else’s negligence, you will also be able to make a claim for general damages such as pain and suffering. That is only fair. It would not set things straight to just pay your bills. Steven Montag has vast experience in handling injury cases. He will fight hard to make sure you get all of the compensation you deserve.
The Montag Law Office Can Deal Effectively With Insurance Companies
Do not trust insurance adjusters! They work for the insurance company, not you. Insurance companies do not want you to hire a Car Accident Attorney because they do not want to pay you any more than necessary for your claim. Adjusters are paid to reduce expenses and minimize the claims against their employers. You do not want to be under-compensated just to save the insurance company money. You need an aggressive, experienced attorney on your side through the whole claim process to even the playing field. Insurance adjusters are highly trained and Insurance companies always have their own lawyers working for them. Do not wait until your claim is in trouble to hire the professional legal representation you need. We can help you make the right decisions at all stages of your injury claim and avoid costly mistakes.
Injury claims are not all the same. Each accident is different. The strength of your claim and the amount of compensation you will get depends on many factors. The circumstances of the accident and the severity of the injuries are only part of what goes into valuing a claim. A Car Accident Attorney needs a high level of expertise in Nebraska injury law and experience to effectively present your claim in the most positive way.
Neck and Back Injuries
Neck and back strains and sprains occur in many car accidents. Even if you do not have a life-threatening injury, sprains and strains cause pain and can lead to more serious spine problems in the future. Promptly identifying your injuries and getting effective treatment can minimize the severity of your injuries. Getting the treatment you need helps you return to good health and doing your normal activities as soon as possible.
Neck and back problems can also be much more severe than whiplash of strains. Disc injuries and even spinal cord injuries are often caused by car accidents. We have handled many cases involving a variety of spinal injuries. Serious injuries can require extensive treatment as well as extreme pain and even permanent disability. It is always our goal to get you the most compensation possible, whether you need surgery or if you have a less serious injury.
Will Hiring a Car Accident Attorney Help?
After a car accident, most people weigh their options and have to decide between hiring a lawyer and handling their own claim. It is difficult to predict how much going it alone versus having a Car Accident Attorney has affected the outcome of a claim after the claim is finished. Steven Montag has had many cases where he represented one person and another person in the same accident represented himself or herself. Normally the person who has a lawyer does a lot better in my experience. Another way that we can get some idea about how things go when people represent themselves is when we get a call from someone who tried to do it themselves for a long time then decided to call a lawyer. Most of the time mistakes were made that hurt the case. We have handled thousands of cases. You cannot expect to do well if it is your first time around and you are learning by trial and error.
