When to seek help after a car accident

| Dec 2, 2014 | Uncategorized |

Nearly everyone in Nebraska has been involved in a minor car accident or knows someone who has. In fender-benders or other accidents with little to no damage, it’s often enough to exchange insurance information and settle damages quickly. Unfortunately, not all car accidents are minor, and the damages that result can be catastrophic in more than one way.

If a person has been involved in a serious accident, it’s important to understand the concept of economic losses and noneconomic losses. Economic losses are self-explanatory: they are financial losses caused by an accident. Some are manageable, including minor vehicle damage. In cases of catastrophic accidents, lost wages and medical bills may cause problems. When severe economic losses become overwhelming, a person involved in an accident may wish to contact a lawyer. Law firms may be able to offer advice that is timely and that can work to help prevent further economic losses, including job loss.

Noneconomic losses tend to be less measurable, but they are no less devastating. These types of losses can include mental and physical distress, loss of enjoyment of life and more. This can happen after an injury that lessens quality of life significantly. Though some people prefer to deal with these consequences alone, they can become too difficult in some cases. It is often wise to contact a lawyer if a person is facing pressure from insurance adjusters, a piling up of bills and other paperwork, or other fallout from an accident.

Our law firm deals with both noneconomic losses and economic losses. Our website can provide more information for those who may be confused and overwhelmed by the various damages caused by an accident. Please see our webpage on different types of damages to learn more.

I cannot thank you enough for the peace of mind you have brought to my family! Both of my parents are extremely grateful for your work. I knew we were in good hands from the first meeting and you have exceeded all my expectations! It may feel straightforward to you, but to us, you have moved mountains. This settlement will allow my parents, particularly my Dad, to enjoy the rest of their lives to the fullest of their abilities. We all agree that we would give every cent back and more for my Dad to walk again, but that is not going to happen...

"...He didn't treat me like I was one of 100 clients. He treated me like I was his only client. He acted professionally but with empathy, dignity and friendliness. It didn't matter if it was something small or large, he was always there for me, be it by phone, fax, email, cellphone or meeting me personally at his office or elsewhere. He never rushed me when I didn't understand something, he'd take as much time as needed to explain things to me, especially when it came time for my deposition and in preparation for trial. He was there for me when I truly needed his help..."

"...My husband and I felt his kindness immediately and were both very impressed with his knowledge of what to expect in a wrongful death case. He pursued our claim in an aggressive manner while at the same time being very protective of our rights and privacy and sheltered us from any unnecessary contact with insurance agents, or any other adverse parties. My husband and I cannot say enough about the kindness, professionalism and legal ability demonstrated by Atwood, Holsten, Brown, Deaver & Spier Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O."

"...If it were not for this law firm all I would have received from this injury would have been a loss of income check and a pat on the back, goodbye. Which only would have been a fraction of what I actually received. He was always professional but more importantly he cared about me and my family as people not just a client. He went beyond his role as my lawyer. He even spoke with my bank and explained why I was behind on my car payment. And this saved me getting my car repossessed..."
