Accidents can leave a devastating, lasting effect on both your physical and emotional well-being. In addition to physical pain and suffering, it can put a great deal of financial stress on you and your family. When your accident was caused due to the actions of someone else, the injured and disabled have the grounds to seek financial relief for the resulting damages.

What is the Nebraska Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury?

A personal injury statute of limitations in the law each state enforces regarding how long after their accident someone may file a personal injury lawsuit.

According to Neb. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 25-207(3) (2016), injury victims are allowed to file a personal injury lawsuit up to 4 years after the date on which their accident occurred. If you fail to file your lawsuit within the allotted amount of time, your case will most likely be dismissed.

Within this statute of limitations, the actual time frame can vary depending on the type of injury lawsuit you are filing. For example, if you're filing a lawsuit for wrongful death, the typical time limit is 2 years after the death has occurred (§30-810).

It is important that you seek out a skilled Nebraska personal injury attorney to help you determine what the statute of limitations is for your case, and how quickly you must ask in order to preserve your case.

What is Nebraska's Pain and Suffering Law?

Nebraska does not put a cap on 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.
