Personal Injury Cases in Nebraska
A personal injury is one in which you were harmed, either physically, emotionally, or mentally, due to someone else’s negligent action or lack of action. By law, the injury or suffering you have sustained may be eligible for compensation from the at-fault party or parties. These personal injury cases most often stem from motor vehicle accidents, but they can extend to any other circumstances where negligence occurred from someone who owed you a duty of care.
The damages to which you may be entitled include:
- Compensation for medical bills, both current and future
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages/income
- Lost earning capacity
- Emotional trauma
- Compensation for disability or disfigurement
- Property damage
- Other out-of-pocket expenses incurred due to the injuries
In some cases, you may also be entitled to punitive damages which are financial penalties levied against the negligent party for his or her wrongdoing.

This is why you should contact Michael J. Fitzpatrick, Attorney at Law right away to get started on you case.
