Why Do I Need a Lawyer for My Personal Injury Claim in Nebraska?

Insurance companies understand your natural aversion to lawyers and lawsuits.  They will always advise you not to involve a lawyer.  Expect to hear comments like, “If you get a lawyer—he’ll take all the money” or “Don’t worry, we’ll treat you fairly.”  So, despite a lack of knowledge and experience in these matters, some people avoid hiring a lawyer for their personal injury claim in Nebraska.  Which means they can’t possibly receive the full value of their case.

Why Experience is So Important

I know what you’re thinking.  “But Bill, I researched this on the Internet”, or “I talked to my brother-in-law who settled his case”.  Well, even if you’re a genius, and very well educated, you have little or no experience in these matters.  How important is that?  Think about your own job.  How long you’ve done it, and what experience has taught you.  And why the new employee, who may be smarter and more educated, cannot possibly outperform you.  Why?  Because experience trumps intelligence and education every time.  This is also why your kids/grandkids beat you soundly at their video games.

Additionally, you pose absolutely no threat to the insurance company you’re trying to negotiate with.  So, when the insurance adjuster tells you, “that’s all the company will pay” – you’re all done after being bullied by the insurance company.  (Think of the bully who says “So, what are you going to do about it?”)  Without a lawyer, who can do something about it, you’re finished.  You see, the ability to sue the insurance company, is the tool (a hammer really) that you don’t, and can’t, possess.  So, you’re prevented from negotiating with your adversary on a level playing field.  You will always be at a huge disadvantage, and never receive the full and fair value of compensation you deserve.

Receive the Full Value of Your Case

At Steffens Law Office, we promise that we will never make more money than you do, even after your medical expenses are paid from the settlement.  We put that promise in writing.  So, you can stop worrying about the insurance company’s warning that “you’ll get nothing, if you hire a lawyer”.  The truth is, you’ll only receive the full value of your case if you hire a lawyer for your personal injury claim in Nebraska.  A fact the insurance company would like to hide.

An Example of How it Works

A good example of this fact can be found in a case we recently settled.  Our client injured his lower back in an auto collision.  He attempted to negotiate with the other driver’s insurance company.  They refused to pay him more than $13,000 beyond his medical expenses.  After hiring us, we went to work advising the client and building a robust, and well-documented, settlement demand package.  The case recently settled, without ever filing a lawsuit, and the client walked away with approximately $45,000, after paying all of his medical expenses and our law firm (almost three and a half times his best insurance offer).
