Personal Injury

Personal injury law allows you (an injured plaintiff) to get compensation when someone else’s negligent or intentional act caused you (the plaintiff) harm.

Some common types of personal injury cases are but not limited to:

  • Car Accident Cases
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Slip and Fall Cases
  • Defamation: Libel and Slander
  • Dog Bites
  • Assault and Battery

Unfair Insurance Practices

Unfair claims practice is the improper avoidance of a claim by an insurer or an attempt to reduce the size of the claim. By engaging in unfair claims practices an insurer tries to reduce its costs.

Some examples of Unfair Claims Practice:

  • Misrepresenting relevant facts or policy provisions.
  • Making a significant alteration in an application without your consent and then settling a claim based on the alteration.
  • Settling claims for less than what you would reasonably expect based on a written advertisement you received.

Workers’ Compensation

If an you (as an employee) are injured on the job, then the employer – or their insurance company – must pay compensation to you (the employee).

In Nebraska there are 4 basic types of compensation:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Temporary Disability
  • Permanent Disability
  • Vocational Rehabilitation

Choose the Lawyer Best Suited for Your Case

Ask the prospective lawyer when they last had a jury trial. (I am in court on a regular basis.) Ask if they have ever represented a client who received a multi million dollar verdict.  (I have.) As if they have ever been to the Supreme Court.  (I have several times.) Ask  if they have ever had a  client  awarded punitive damages  by a jury.  (I have.)  Ask how  many  jury trial they have had.  (I have tried dozens, both in state and federal courts, in Iowa and Nebraska.)

These are all fair  questions. I put my track record up against anyone.  So many lawyer talk a good game but always tell  their  clients  to fold whenever it comes time  to  decide whether to go  to trial or to settle.  As with medical care, it is OK to ask for a second opinion. Talking to me is always free unless and until I get something done for you.

Clients do not ordinarily ever really pay me directly. All fees and reimbursement of costs come from recovery as against the negligent parties and their insurers/lawyers. Damages against a negligent tort feasor are usually three things — past and future health care costs reasonably necessitated to treat injuries caused by the negligence of the adverse driver, past wage loss and future lost earning capacity and past and future general damages which are thought of as pain and suffering but can include any way the injury and condition impact you. General damages can include inconvenience where you must go look up telephone numbers or details you used to carry around and retrieve from memory with ease. It includes the shock of the moment, the frustration trying to recover, the daily moments that are not the same because you are not the same person.

I am here to evaluate your situation and tell you with candor and decades of  experience if I think you have a significant case and what you should do.
