Know-How To Take On Your Toughest Legal Challenges

We Pursue The Compensation You Need After A Car Accident

A car accident can be overwhelming on so many levels. First of all, it is unexpected. This means there is no way to prepare for it. Second, it can be hard to advocate for yourself or a loved one when also dealing with doctors, pain, limited mobility and even PTSD.

At McHenry Haszard Law in Lincoln, we understand the whole picture. We take a holistic approach to representation. This means we seek to take care of the “whole” you—your mental, physical and financial health.

We Handle The Insurance Companies

We will advocate for you when it comes to getting a fair settlement or verdict. As trial attorneys, we pull from decades of refined negotiation skills to procure the best outcome. Most cases settle out of court. However, if the insurance company refuses to offer reasonable compensation – compensation that covers all of your costs, property damage, lost wages and pain and suffering – we are prepared to go to trial.

It’s important to remember that the insurance company has one goal: to pay out as little as possible. Our goal is to ensure that you are fully compensated. We work for you.

We handle all types of injury and wrongful death claims related to motor vehicle accidents, including:

  • Auto accidents
  • Uninsured and underinsured driver accidents
  • DUI accidents
  • Semi-truck, delivery van and commercial truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Passenger injuries
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents

The Compensation Your Case May Involve

Every accident is different. You may have suffered property loss (such as a totaled car), economic losses (such as time not working) and physical and emotional losses (such as a broken leg and intense anxiety around driving or being in a car). We can help. Depending on the details of your crash, we may pursue:

  • Lost current and future wages
  • All of your current and future medical, equipment, prescription and care bills
  • Compensation for the pain and suffering you’ve endured
  • Compensation for the extreme mental and emotional distress you’ve suffered
  • In cases of a fatal accident, we can also pursue loss of companionship, loss of income and funeral costs

We know that you are unable to wait long periods without getting compensation. We also do not want you to be taken advantage of by insurance companies that offer a quick but unreasonable settlement.

UIM In Nebraska

You may have purchased uninsured or underinsured motorist (UIM) protection as part of your own car insurance policy. If this is the case, you may be able to seek compensation from your own insurance company in addition to the other driver’s policy after a car accident. UIM insurance policies have medical payments coverage. This will aid in paying your medical bills, even if you are at fault. We can also assess whether your own health care insurance will cover part or all of your medical bills.

A Different Approach To Injury Cases

We know that right after an accident can be a hard time to make decisions. We are here to help you understand what is available to you. We then will pursue this compensation for you. Personal injury cases are different than other cases. We only take the cases that we feel we can attain compensation for. We, therefore, do not charge an upfront fee. Instead, we take an agreed-upon percentage once your case is settled via negotiation or won in court.
