Car Accidents In Omaha Pit Personal Injury Lawyers Against Insurance Giants

Car Accidents Lawyer In Omaha

Omaha has been compared to the beating heart of America, with goods and people pouring in and out of this Nebraska transportation hub. Unfortunately, America’s arteries sometimes get clogged. Car accidents, as well as truck and other motor vehicle accidents, remain all too common in Omaha.

While some will be fatal, others will leave survivors grievously injured and struggling under crippling medical payments as they try to return to life before their crash. But one major obstacle often lies in their way: insurance companies.

As the ultimate source of any compensation payment to injured car accident victims, insurance companies will often fight to deny or limit the size of settlements or payments. Arrayed against them are personal injury attorneys, like Omaha’s own Terry Salerno & Danny Leavitt.

If Omaha is the heart of America, then these cases might very well be fights over its soul.

Omaha: Some Of Nebraska’s Deadliest Roads And Car Accidents

Omaha: Nebraska’s Deadliest Roads And Car Accidents Attorney Primarily located in Douglas County, but with a metropolitan area that stretches through eight counties in two states, Omaha is a transportation hub that runs more than ever on road traffic. Interstates, highways, motorways, and expressways converge in the metropolitan area. Omaha’s grid-like streets welcome millions of cars every week, and serious car accidents nearly every day.Douglas County, of which Omaha makes up a substantial portion, has more motor vehicle accidents than any other in Nebraska. While the percentage of fatalities on Omaha roadways has fallen somewhat in recent years, this means more car accident victims have survived only to suffer life-changing injuries.Injuries they struggle to receive adequate compensation for from tight-fisted insurance companies.

Insurance Companies Fight Over Fault In Omaha Personal Injury Claims

As an “at-fault” state, Nebraskan law stipulates that the driver responsible for an accident in Omaha must pay compensation for the damages and injuries suffered by others. Or more accurately, their insurance company needs to pay.Insurance companies, however, are reluctant to hand over the tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of dollars that any given car accident can cost an injured victim. As victims struggle to claim what they need to pay for medical treatments or time lost from work, insurance companies try to play the blame game.First, they will try to dispute who is at fault, and thus which company has to pay. But even when fault is clear, the final amount of compensation paid can be reduced by any amount of blame attributed to the victim. A fact insurance companies are more than happy to exploit to substantially reduce the amount they owe you after an accident.Thus having a single brake light supposedly have been out before you got rear-ended at an intersection could mean you only get 80% of what your spinal cord injury cost you from the insurance company of the driver who recklessly slammed into your car.
