Do I Need An Omaha Injury Attorney?

The decision of whether to hire an attorney is yours to make.  You are not legally required to have an attorney represent you in your auto accident claim.  However, we highly recommend that you hire an experienced Omaha personal injury lawyer to handle your claim.  Here are some of the reasons it is beneficial to you to hire an attorney to represent you.

  • You have deadlines. What many injured accident victims don’t understand is the fact that their case is time-sensitive.  The statute of limitations for a car accident can vary greatly depending from case-to-case based on who the at-fault party is. As such, it is extremely important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your case.
  • Attorneys are skilled negotiators. Negotiating on behalf of clients is what we do.  Experienced attorneys at Matthew G. Miller know every trick in the insurance company’s book.  We know when to push for a better offer and when to bring your case to trial.
  • Medical bills. Many personal injury victims don’t understand the importance of gathering evidence in your claim.  Much of this evidence is in the form of medical records and medical bills. Matthew G. Miller is skilled in ensuring that the evidence in your claim is presented to the insurance company or the court in its proper format.
  • You only have one bite at the apple. Once you agree to a settlement in your case, you cannot bring another claim for additional expenses or pain and suffering.  If you do not account for future medical expenses, or if you accept a settlement that you later learn was too low, you cannot go back to the insurance company for more money.  An experienced attorney will make sure you are compensated fairly the first time.
  • Time and stress. As soon as you notify the insurance company that you have an attorney, they will be legally obligated to direct all communication through your legal counsel.  That means no more harassing phone calls, no more statements without an attorney present, and no more forms to fill out without a lawyer to help.  It also means that all of your medical records will be reviewed by your attorney before going to the insurance company, so that no unrelated personal information is sent to the insurance company.
  • Potential litigation. Every personal injury case has the potential to go trial, at which point you will usually hire an attorney anyway and pay the same percentage for their work.  Wouldn’t you rather have a lawyer to help you through the process from start to finish?

Over 30 Years of Experience
Handling Personal Injury Matters

Matt's success as an insurance defense lawyer actually prompted him to change his career focus and go to work representing injured people.

I can't stand bullies. I discovered, when I did insurance defense work, that insurance companies were in a position to take advantage of people whose lives had been turned upside down because of the wrongful conduct of insured policy holders. While I had success in the courtroom on behalf of our insurance company clients, it left me convinced I was working for the wrong side. After winning a case I should not have won, I quit my job and went to work representing injured people. I vowed that I would never again represent an insurance company.

Matt continues:

People come to us having suffered tragic, horrendous harms and losses. I frequently see people whose entire lives, and the lives of their families, have been devastated by someone else's wrongful conduct. These wrongdoers are almost always represented by insurance companies. That's where we come in. We're able to level the playing field and to make sure that no one we represent is going to get pushed around or exploited by an insurance company.
