Were You Injured in a Semi Truck Accident in Nebraska?
The victim of an accident involving a semi truck may incur hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills, lost wages and other damages. When so much money is at stake, insurance companies can be very aggressive in their attempts to minimize the amount they have to pay.
At Friedman Law Offices, P.C., L.L.O., our lawyers are here to protect your right to full compensation for everything you have lost in a semi truck accident. From our offices in Lincoln, we represent 18-wheeler crash victims and their families throughout Nebraska. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
Don't Say Anything or Sign Anything Before You Talk to a Lawyer
Shortly after your accident, you may be contacted by an insurance company representative asking you to make a recorded statement or sign a release form. You shouldn't do either until you have first talked to a lawyer.
You are under no obligation to say anything to the insurance company or the trucking company. In fact, doing so may cause irreparable harm to your case. An innocent statement can be twisted around and used to shift blame for the accident from the trucking company to you.
The insurance carrier may also offer you a check in exchange for signing a release form. Accepting any check before the full extent of your injuries is known can be a very serious mistake. Once you sign a release, you have signed away your legal rights, ending your case. If your injuries turn out to be more serious than you first thought, you won't be able to go back to the insurance company and ask for more money.
