If you were injured in a car accident, you are probably wondering what things you can be compensated for if you were to bring a personal injury claim against the person who caused your accident.

There is a lot of misinformation out there about how these claims work and what you can and cannot receive from the insurance company of the responsible driver.  The best way to get an idea of how much you case is worth and what you can be compensated for is to speak with an attorney.  Matthew G. Miller has represented many Omaha residents who were victims of car accidents and has successfully negotiated maximum settlements on their behalf.

“Damages” and How To Claim Them

An Omaha car accident case has several elements. First, the plaintiff must show that they were injured and that their injury was caused by another driver’s negligence.

Second, they must show that they have damages as a result of the accident. If a car crash occurs, no matter how negligent or irresponsible the other driver was, if there was no tangible injury and no medical bills incurred by the plaintiff, there can be no claim.

Damages can include lots of different things. Medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of companionship, future medical expenses, and property damages, to name a few, are the types of things that qualify as damages in your claim.  When you have an accident, it is crucial that you plead your case properly at the outset, because you will only have one chance to file a claim.  Matthew G. Miller will ensure that you claim all applicable damages so that you can receive the maximum compensation in your car accident settlement.

Who Compensates You For Your Injury

The insurance company for the responsible driver or drivers will be the main source of compensation for your damages.  This is because Nebraska is a tort state, which means that when you are injured, you have to bring a third-party claim against the other driver’s insurance company, and submit your medical bills and demand for compensation to them.  However, there are some situations where your insurance company might pay part of your compensation package.

If you are partially at fault in your accident, your insurance company will have to pay a proportional amount that is equal to the percentage that you are found to be at fault.  Alternatively, if the other driver is at fault and does not have sufficient insurance coverage to compensate for all of your damages, you may be able to file an underinsurance claim with your insurance company to pay for the balance of your damages.
