Hiring a Lawyer for a Personal Injury Case

If you've been involved in a motor vehicle accident it’s possible that the at-fault person's car insurance company may immediately contact you to settle the claim. Be careful dealing with that company, and if you feel it’s needed, consider hiring a personal injury lawyer. There are a few situations in which hiring a lawyer is very important. One scenario in which it is best to hire a lawyer for a personal injury case is if there is a dispute about who’s at fault for the accident. Another situation in which a lawyer is prudent would be if someone were seriously injured. A third situation would be if your accident involved an uninsured motorist. A lawyer can help you in the above situations by navigating the process so that you do not lose money to which you may be entitled. If you have recently been victim to a motor vehicle accident and are considering hiring a lawyer to help you with the process, please contact McHenry Hazsard Law today to find out how we can help.

Statute of Limitations

You may have heard the term on television or movies, but what is a statute of limitations? The statue of limitations is a law which puts a time limit on how long one can wait to press legal charges against a wrongful act. Some of the Statute of Limitation Laws that apply in Nebraska include: Personal Injury: 4 years. Fraud: 4 years. Libel / Slander / Defamation: 1 year. Injury to Personal Property: 4 years. Product Liability: 4 years. Contracts: Written, 5 years; Oral, 4 years. Although these are the standards, other conditions may apply depending on your case. If you have a question about Nebraska's statute of limitations laws or if they apply to your case, call our lawyers for more information.
