If you have been injured by the carelessness of another, an experienced attorney may be able to help you.
A Lincoln personal injury lawyer could help you determine whether or not you have a claim against another individual and help guide you through the process of establishing negligence, maximizing the value of your claim, managing your medical bills, and if necessary, taking your case to court.
The following information will go into more details of the factors that comprise a personal injury case.
Was There Negligence?
Negligence as a component of a personal injury case means another individual acted carelessly, or without regard for the safety or well-being of another, or did not act to safeguard the safety or well-being of others, where they had a duty to exercise reasonable care. For example, making a case for compensation following a slip and fall accident that happened in a store will require your Lincoln attorney to establish that the owner of the business has an obligation to keep the business free of known hazards, was aware of the hazard, and failed to take reasonable action to prevent the accident that lead to your injuries.
A skilled personal injury attorney could evaluate the facts of your case to establish whether the criteria for negligence can be established and will build your case on that foundation.

Seeking Compensation for Personal Injury in Lincoln
If you have been injured due to the negligence of another person, you may be faced with expensive medical bills and even be out of work and unable to earn a paycheck while you recover. A Lincoln personal injury attorney may seek compensation for you for a variety of financial losses, including things like lost wages due to being unable to work, medical bills (both current and future), damage to your property, and your past and future pain and suffering.
The rapidly mounting financial costs associated with your injury – especially if you are left unable to work – may make it tempting to accept a fast cash settlement offer from the other party, but doing so will prevent you from seeking compensation in the future. In most cases, you are only compensated once by the at fault party for your injuries, so it is important to make sure you are fully compensated for all of your damages. A lawyer could help you identify all of your damages and identify all potential sources of recovery, including all insurance policies that may provide coverage for your losses.
