Nebraska’s Car Accident Insurance Claim Process

When you’re hurt in a serious car accident in Nebraska, your first thought may be that your insurance should cover it. After paying into your insurance policy for years, it should cover the costs, right? 

But the car accident claims process can be confusing. If you’re struggling to get compensated for your car accident, make sure you take the steps below to maximize your settlement after a car crash. When you’re ready for help with your claim, speak with a local Hastings car accident lawyer.

Report Your Accident 

When you’re first involved in a car accident, you need to report your accident as soon as possible to the right authorities. That means calling the police right away, and calling your insurance company as soon as possible. 

Even if you don’t believe you’re seriously injured, you may still be eligible for compensation for damage to your vehicle. You may have also suffered injuries that you haven’t noticed yet. Because of this, it’s best to act now and report your accident. Waiting can even hurt your claim, so speak with a lawyer as soon as possible to protect your claim. 

Nebraska’s Fault Laws for Car Crashes

When you’re involved in a Nebraska car accident, you may need to focus on state fault laws, as well. Nebraska law states that the at-fault party is financially liable for the accident. That means you may need to provide evidence that you weren’t at fault for the accident. 

Luckily, your lawyer can help you provide that evidence. You may have eyewitnesses, for example, or the police report may mention that another driver was texting behind the wheel. Talk to your lawyer about the details of your claim and what you can do to prove you weren’t at fault for your car accident. 

Getting Compensated for Your Injuries 

Even with evidence that you weren’t at fault for the car accident, you may still have a difficult time getting compensated for the injuries and property damage you suffered. The insurance company is still a for-profit company, which means they may still try to lowball your settlement

For example, you may need your medical bills covered after you broke a bone in the car accident. But the settlement offer you received from the insurance company may not be enough to cover your injury. 

In these cases, don’t accept an offer from the insurance company yet. Talk with your lawyer about the costs of your injuries and the compensation your lawyer can help you seek.
