The statute of limitations for a personal injury lawsuit in Nebraska is four years, according to state law. In other words, if you fail to file a personal injury claim before the deadline, you have no case. And keep in mind, that time frame can vary depending on what kind of lawsuit you’re filing. A wrongful death injury lawsuit, for example, has a two-year time limit in Nebraska.

Nebraska Pain and Suffering Law
Nebraska does not cap damages that can be recovered for pain and suffering in most cases; however, when it comes to medical malpractice there is a total damage cap enforced, which limits the amount of compensation that can be recovered (both economic and non-economic) to $2.25 million.
